We've known for some time now that Disney long-gestating streaming service is going live in the US on November 12, but it has remained unclear when Disney+ will be available for the rest of the world. Well, thanks to Deadline we finally have some details on when the rest of the world will get Disney+.
Canada and the Netherlands will get Disney+ on the official US launch date of November 12 with Australia and New Zealand getting it the week after on November 19. According to Deadline, Disney is currently in negotiations to add more countries to the list which will be announced in the coming weeks. Sadly, there are no details on when the UK will get the service; hopefully, we'll know more once further territories are added.
Cost-wise, Disney is going in tough with a reported basic monthly package of $7, that's considerably cheaper than the $13 package that Netflix offers (which is the most popular package in the US). That's not all, a bundle offer for $12.99 will get you Disney+, Hulu on-demand, and ESPN+. Prices for the rest of the world will vary, Canada and Australia will cost $8.99 a month or $89.99 for an annual pass, New Zealand will be $9.99 a month or $99.99 for the year. Mostly, it's about the same price once you factor in the exchange rate, but all will offer an annual subscription at a discount.
The line-up of exclusive content that will be available on Disney+ has made a subscription a necessity for fans of Star Wars, and the MCU. The roster of Marvel-based content alone is enough for Disney+ to be massive with WandaVision tying directly to Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Falcon & The Winter Soldier picking up post-Endgame, a Loki series that answers where The God of Mischief went after the botched time heist. Plus a Hawkeye series, and the animated anthology, What If? Equally, Star Wars has a live-action series from Iron Man director Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian, a new season of the Clone Wars, and a live-action prequel to Rogue One.
If Star Wars or Marvel isn't your thing, Disney+ has reboots of Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Sister Act, 3 Men and a Baby, Lady and The Tramp, High School Musical, and a spin-off from Monsters Inc all on the horizon. And that's just a handful of the projects currently in development. We'll bring you more details on the international rollout of Disney+ as soon as more details are confirmed.
