For The Simpsons, it is owned by Sky in the U.K and there were questions about if the show will be available on Disney Plus when it gets live in the U.K because Sky has its pay-TV operator that owns The Simpsons, so Disney and Sky reached an agreement that says the following: all 30 seasons are included at launch, Season 31 will be available in November. And of course Disney is the one who gets the benefit from this agreement.
