Disney+ streaming service to arrive in Australian in November and cost less than Netflix.
Back in April Disney+ announced they would be joining the streaming world, however, all the news and fanfare was around the U.S launch of the service – leaving us here in Australia to wonder when Disney+ will be available in Australia?
Wonder no more!
When will Disney+ launch in Australia?
Set your calendar – Disney+ will launch its much-anticipated streaming service in Australia on November 19, which is only one week behind the U.S.
How much will Disney+ cost in Australia?
Cheaper than Netflix Disney+ Australia will cost only $8.99 a month.
Where will Disney+ be available in Australia?
The streaming service will be available on major streaming devices including Apple (iPhones, iPads and Apple TV) and Google’s suite of products (Android phones and Chromecast) plus it will also be available on gaming consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
What shows will be on Disney+?
Disney+ will feature kid-friendly programming, including 13 classic animated movies, 21 Pixar features, original series and material from its Marvel and Star Wars franchises.
The big drawcard for the big kids at heart, however, might be whole The Simpsons catalogue – all 30 seasons.
The Simpsons were acquired in Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox Inc. entertainment assets last month.
Those that are thinking I already have some Disney shows on Netflix or Stan might not have access to these shows for much longer.
While Disney previously had deals in place with Netflix and other streaming services to offer its content, Disney has now given up those partnerships and the revenue to make its own service more desirable.
For example, some Netflix users would have noticed the sudden disappearance of Moana from the streaming service.
For the moment though you can still stream some Disney content on Netflix and Stan, however as mentioned above and once Disney+ goes live – you will no doubt see a significant decrease of Disney content being available on non-Disney streaming services.
So make sure you start saving your dollars so the kids can ‘Disney and Chill’ come November in Australia.
