Anyone in countries that have access to Disney Plus – North America, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, most of mainland Europe and more – simply need to head to the Disney Plus website to sign up for the service.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll find Black Widow available to buy through the Premier Access platform for $29.99/£19.99/AU$34.99. It’s available to pre-order in the US and Canada until July 8, before being released on Friday, July 9 at 8am BST / 12am PT / 3am ET.
As for Disney Plus itself, it’s well worth checking out. In addition to getting you first dibs on Premier Access films, it features every episode of The Simpsons ever made, all your favorite Pixar flicks, the latest Marvel movies, and the complete Star Wars canon.

What is Disney Plus Premier Access?
Disney Plus introduced Premier Access in September 2020, in response to the worldwide Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent shuttering of the majority of cinemas. It provided an alternative route to get big budget blockbusters to audiences, with its first premium video on-demand title being the live-action Mulan remake.
It’s now reserved for the service’s absolute biggest movie releases and designed to let you watch the latest Walt Disney releases from the comfort of home – whether that’s simply your preference, or because movie theaters may be closed where you are.
It’s a great option to have and Disney’s spared no effort trying to recreate the cinematic experience, with all Premier Access titles available to watch on Disney Plus in 4K HDR resolution (Dolby Vision) and offering support for immersive Dolby Atmos sound.
While the one-off $30/£20/AU$35 on demand fee seems hefty, it does work out at about the same price as two movie tickets (and means you don’t have to splash out on expensive popcorn, drinks and snacks). Not only that, but subscribers can pause the action when they want and re-watch the film as many times as they’d like – that is, as long as they remain a Disney Plus member.
Premier Access films are eventually made a part of the regular Disney Plus library. However, that doesn’t happen until three months after their original release date.
How to save money on Disney Plus
The Disney Plus price is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription which gives you 15% off the monthly price. Obviously you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck into, we very much doubt you’ll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You’re looking at a mere $79.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year.
If your interests are farther reaching (and you’re in the US), then we’d seriously recommend looking at the fantastic value bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN Plus to your subscription price.
The Hulu element opens up a world of Hulu Originals too, such as Upload, Love Victor, Helstrom and The Handmaid’s Tale. Bringing even more great value, ESPN Plus offers loads of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined bundle costs just $13.99 a month.
What else should I know about Disney Plus
Disney Plus is showing no signs of slowing down since the service first launched in November 2019. It’s the only place to watch Loki, which is just one in a string of recent releases exclusive to the platform, including Soul, The Mandalorian, Cruella, Hamilton, and much more.
The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course), and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.
And finally, there’s the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy and which sees the amount of content available on Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy. It costs a tiny bit more, but is worth it based on our initial impressions – and you can still save big by going with an annual subscription.
