Disney today confirmed all the platforms that its upcoming Disney+ streaming service will support. The list of supported platforms includes almost all Apple devices and OSes.
Apart from offering a native iOS app, Disney+ will also be available on Apple TV. Apart from this, the streaming service will also be available on all other major streaming platforms including Roku, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, and more. Only Amazon’s Fire TV is the major streaming platform that is missing from the list.
Disney+ will launch in the United States on November 12 with a monthly subscription fee of $6.99. In the Netherlands, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, the service will launch later in November.
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 will also be offering customers the option to directly subscribe to its streaming service on almost all of the platforms including that of Apple. It is unclear if Disney will be absorbing the App Store tax or pass it on to consumers.
Disney recently also announced that it will be offering a Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ bundle to its U.S. customers for only $12.99/month.
It is already clear that Apple TV+ is going to get some stiff competition from Disney+. The latter seems to be ticking all the right boxes while Apple has been silent on the availability and pricing of Apple TV+ so far.
