Belgium’s Proximus has announced a new step in its collaboration with the streaming service Disney+.
It will see Pickx customers now able to pay for their Disney+ subscription via their Proximus invoice. In addition, access to Disney+ will be permanently integrated into the Pickx All Stars and Pickx All Stars & Sports TV options.
Proximus notes that since the launch of Disney+ in Belgium in September 2020, it has been one of the platform’s partners. Access to Disney+ was included right from the start in the TV options Pickx All Stars and Pickx All Stars & Sports. Customers were given a voucher for a year’s access to Disney+, included in their pack. From now on, the collaboration between Proximus and Disney+ is shifting to a higher gear. Customers who have opted for one of these two options will have permanent access to Disney+, without any price changes.
Moreover, to facilitate access to Disney+ for all TV customers of Proximus, Disney+ is available as an individual option from today, for €8.99 per month. In other words, all TV customers can now subscribe to Disney+ through Proximus, giving them access to all the streaming platform’s content on their Android TV Box (V7) and allowing them to pay their Disney+ subscription through their Proximus invoice.
Jim Casteele, consumer market lead at Proximus, said: “I am delighted with this extension of our collaboration with Disney+, which is first and foremost great news for all our TV customers. They will get easier and more direct access to the unique entertainment experience that Disney offers them, good for hours of pleasure, both on their screens at home and on the road. This strengthened collaboration with a major player like Disney is in line with Proximus’ strategy to offer our customers the most comprehensive and attractive TV platform on the Belgian market”.
Bart Verhoeven, director platform distribution of The Walt Disney Company Benelux, added: “We are very pleased to further expand the strategic collaboration with Proximus around Disney+. Proximus has been an important partner for Disney for some time now. Joining forces with Proximus makes the Disney+ streaming service accessible to a large number of customers through the various bundles, subscriptions, services, products and billing of Proximus, with the convenience for the customer at the forefront”.
