Disney+ Is Hitting Australia In November (And We Know The Price)

Walt Disney Co said on Monday it will launch its Disney+ video streaming service in Canada and the Netherlands on November 12, the same date as its previously announced United States launch.

Customers will be able to subscribe to Disney+ directly or via in-app purchases and will be available on a slew of platforms including Apple, Google, Microsoft's Xbox One, Sony via its Android TVs and the Playstation 4 and Roku.

In the USA, access to Disney Plus will cost $6.99 per month. Pricing plans in the first four global markets will be roughly comparable.

The owner of ESPN and theme parks had announced earlier this month that it would offer a bundle of its three streaming services, Disney+, sports service ESPN+, and Hulu, at a discounted price of $13 per month.

Pricing will be competitively placed at €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year) in the Netherlands, while the service will cost CAD$8.99 per month (or CAD$89.99 per year) in Canada.

The launch of Disney Plus in Australia and New Zealand will follow on November 19.

Disney has announced the worldwide launch of its new streaming platform Disney+ in four countries.

The Walt Disney Company (DIS.N) says it will launch its Disney Plus streaming service in Canada in mid-November, taking on Netflix and other services as consumers increasingly drop traditional cable.

Original content set for the service includes series "The Mandalorian" - the first "Star Wars" live-action TV show - "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series", "The World According to Jeff Goldblum" and "Encore!", as well as films including "Lady and the Tramp" and "Noelle".
