TV and Streaming – Tuesday 24th March

Morning!

Today sees the release of Disney+ in the UK. There are over 500 films and hundreds of TV shows and specials. Virtually the whole back catalogue of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars movies as well as National Geographics. The big news is the UK premiere of The Mandalorian, the new spectacular Star Wars series. To get Disney+, please check their website.

Elsewhere, as we heard last night, we are in almost lockdown so more people are going to be in self-isolation. Please spread the news about what I am doing here. Share as much as you can. This is a public service, so let the public know!

Try to stay safe. Stay inside and have a happy Tuesday!
