If you’ve been waiting for more information about when Disney+ will launch internationally, here’s what you should know.
We already shared that Disney+ will launch in the U.S. on November 12. Now, we know that the streaming service will begin rolling out internationally this November, as well. A number of territories will even be launching on the same date at the U.S.
Disney just announced that Disney+ will launch in Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand this November, making those four countries (plus the U.S.) the first who will gain access to the new streaming service. Disney+ will launch in Canada and the Netherlands on the same day as in the U.S. (November 12), and it will launch a few days later in Australia and New Zealand on November 19.
The highly anticipated streaming service will only cost $6.99 per month in the U.S., and prices internationally will be comparable, from what we can tell so far. It will cost C$8.99 per month in Canada, €6.99 per month in the Netherlands, A$8.99 per month in Australia, and NZ$9.99 per month in New Zealand.
Disney is reportedly in discussions with other territories to make Disney+ available internationally for other countries worldwide, and we’re expected to find out more soon. The streaming service is expected to be widely available in all major international markets within the first two years of launch. We have our fingers crossed for all the Disney fans around the world that you’ll be able to enjoy Disney+ sooner rather than later.
When Disney+ launches this November, consumers will be able to access the app via in-app purchase on the following platforms, although this may vary by each country:
- Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV
- Google Android phones and TV devices, Chromecast, and Chromecast built-in devices
- Xbox One
- PlayStation 4 and Sony’s Android-based TVs
- Roku streaming players and Roku TV models
