We have known for some time that Disney would be releasing their official streaming service, Disney+, on November 12, and that it will have a reasonable price of $6.99 a month. This plan would include a ton of Disney content — not the least of which is their own animated branded content — as well as tons of original series and films from the likes of Marvel and Lucasfilm.
But, of course, just because something holds true in the States does not mean it will necessarily be so in other countries. Luckily, the House of Mouse has taken it upon itself to reveal some of the international details.
The service will launch day-and-date with the U.S. on November 12 in Canada and the Netherlands. It will launch a week later in Australia and New Zealand on November 19. The pricing is as follows, per Deadline:
“In Canada, it will be priced C$8.99 per month, or $89.99 per year, and in Holland, it will cost €6.99 per month of €69.99 per year, In Australia, it will cost A$8.99 per month or $89.99 per year, and NZ$9.99 per month or $99.99 in New Zealand.”
Of course, these aren’t the only countries Disney plans on rolling the service out to, but as of right now, that’s these are the only ones we have information on. As of right now, they are in the process of negotiations with other territories, as the whole rights business is a messy situation that has a lot of red tape thanks to different rights for different films as well as other rules.
