It will also have the first rights to run the Mouse House’s newest films including “Wreck-It Ralph” and “Brave.” 

Bloomberg reports the deal will also give BSkyB first-run rights to Disney-affiliated films including those in its Lucasfilm and Marvel collections such as “Iron Man 3.” 

The news comes on the heels of the pay-TV channel making a deal with AT&T to offer 16,000 Wi-Fi spots to those travelling in the UK.
