The Walt Disney Company's Direct-to-Consumer and International (DTCI) segment has announced the global rollout dates of its streaming service Disney+, revealing that the platform will launch in Australia and New Zealand on 19 November.
Housing content from the company's porfolio of brands including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, the subscription video on demand (SVOD) platform will be priced at AUD$8.99 per month (or $89.99 per year).
Disney+ will be available on nearly all major mobile and connected TV devices at the time of launch, with global distribution agreements in place with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku and Sony.
At the launch of the SVOD platform, consumers will be able to subscribe to the service directly with Disney+ or via an in-app purchase.
As reported by Toy & Hobby Retailer's sister publication AdNews Disney is looking to boost its local team ahead of the launch, posting a slate of job opportunities out of its head office in Richmond Victoria.
Disney+ is already visible on Facebook and Instagram in Australia and New Zealand.
Disney+ will launch in the US, Canada and the Netherlands one week before it goes live in Australia and New Zealand on 12 November.
