Disney+ Officially Launching in 42 Countries and 11 Territories This Summer
The Walt Disney Company announced that this summer Disney+ will launch in 42 countries and 11 new territories. New countries include Poland, South Africa, Turkey, Romania, the United Arab Emirates, and lots more. Subscription plans, prices, or country-by-country launch dates have yet to be revealed.
The streaming service was originally launched in 2019 in the U.S., Canada, and the Netherlands and currently has 179 million total subscriptions across Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu as of the end of fiscal 2021, and plans to more than double the number of countries Disney+ is into over 160 by fiscal 2023. It provides content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
In select international markets, Disney+ includes the new general entertainment content brand, Star, through which it offers content from 20th Century Studios, Searchlight Pictures, Disney Television Studios, and FX.
During Disney Investor Day almost three years ago, the President of Disney Streaming Services, Michael Paull, announced that the streaming service would be available in every major region of the world by late 2021. As part of Disney’s Q3 2021 Earnings Call in August, CEO Bob Chapek announced that plans to launch in Eastern Europe have been delayed from late 2021 until summer 2022.
While it’s a couple of months late, Disney+ will soon be an even bigger player in the international market.
It’s important to note that Disney+ is a more compelling offering in most international markets, since it includes the Star service with more mature content reserved for Hulu in the U.S.
