To reward them for their long-term super-fandom, O2 has crowned Amanda its first customer in the country to have access to the streaming service, providing access to 500 films, more than 350 series and a slate of 26 exclusive Disney+ Originals at launch.

O2, the exclusive UK mobile network distributor of Disney+, gifted the ultimate superfan who has visited Disneyland Paris nine times, the opportunity to experience Disney+ wherever she wants, including access on mobile, online streaming and TV.

O2 has provided Amanda with a brand-new smartphone and twelve-months Disney+ membership so she can enjoy Disney’s iconic animated films, Marvel’s cinematic universe and hundreds of episodes of The Simpsons wherever she pleases.


Nina Bibby, CMO at O2, said:
“Our customers are our headline act and what better way to demonstrate that than by putting Amanda centre stage as the first O2 customer to get access to the highly anticipated Disney+ streaming service.

“O2 is all about offering our customers an incredible range of entertainment and it’s a pleasure to be able to offer new and upgrading pay monthly customers the opportunity to get six months of Disney+ on us, so that they can join in the fun and appreciate everything it has to offer in style.” 

Disney superfan, Amanda Lennard, said: “We absolutely love Disney and have been on the edge of our seats waiting for the steaming service to launch. We can’t wait to rekindle the nostalgia of Disney classic movies, binge on the Star Wars trilogies and watch our favourite Marvel superheroes in action. Adam has two shelves of memorabilia dedicated purely to Thanos so there might be a tear in his eye during Avengers: Endgame!”
