Disney will launch a pay-to-view streaming service that will house a wide range of its content next month in the U.K.

The new service, DisneyLife, will cost £9.99 per month and offer the complete Pixar catalog of films in addition to its classic and new films, TV series, music and books. DisneyLife will initially roll out in the U.K., however plans are in place to debut the service across Europe in 2016.

“This is the future, in many respects,” says Bob Iger, chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company. “We’re seeing more and more opportunities to reach consumers directly and not through middlemen, and we’re seeing consumers wanting product in different ways.”

Movies and series produced by Marvel and Lucasfilm are not included in this specific service.

There are no plans to bring the service to the U.S.
