Disney+ Launch Date, Price & Details Announced

disney plus logo on backgroundDisney announced the launch date for Disney+ will be November 12, 2019 in the US, Canada, and the Netherlands, and on November 19 in Australia and New Zealand. The company said they expect to launch in most major markets within the first two years.

Disney also revealed their platform partners that include Apple, Google, Microsoft, Sony/Sony Interactive, and Roku. Notice anyone missing from those partners? You got it: Amazon. Disney and Amazon haven’t been playing nicely as of late (as evidenced with the lack of Disney home media products on Amazon upon release date including Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel). That means Fire TV owners will need an alternate way to stream Disney+ — at least for now. A list of specific supported devices at launch is posted below.

As far as content, the company confirmed Disney+ will offer content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and other partners.

The launch of Disney+ is sure to send ripples, if not waves, across the streaming industry. Netflix, in particular, should be particularly concerned about the level of competition they will face from Disney’s bundled product which will cost as much as Netflix’s multi-screen/HD plan but provide three services: Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu (ad-supported).

But many of us may be thinking about subscribing to both the Disney+ bundle and Netflix which would provide plenty content options for about $30 per month — a lot less than what cable and satellite services have been charging. So, maybe Comcast, AT&T and other TV providers are really the ones who should be shaking in their boots over Disney+.

In the US, Disney+ will cost $6.99 per month or bundled with Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for $12.99 per month. Globally, the price of Disney+ will vary. Here is a breakdown direct from Disney.

As the global rollout for Disney+ begins on November 12, Disney+ will be priced at $8.99CAD per month (or $89.99 per year) in Canada and €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year) in the Netherlands. The following week, Disney+ will launch in Australia and New Zealand on November 19, priced at $8.99AUD per month (or $89.99 per year) and $9.99NZD per month (or $99.99 per year), respectively.

Disney+ Supported Platforms

  • Apple (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV, and fully integrated with the Apple TV app; customers can subscribe to Disney+ via in-app purchase)
  • Google (Android phones, Android TV devices, Google Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices)
  • Microsoft (Xbox One)
  • Sony / Sony Interactive Entertainment (all Android based Sony TVs and PlayStation®4)
  • Roku (Roku® streaming players and Roku TV™ models)
