Disney+ Launching This November on Xbox One, Apple TV, Other Platforms

Posted on August 19, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Disney+, Music + Videos with 13 Comments

Disney is revealing the launch details for the first Disney+ markets today. The company today announced when and which markets Disney+ will be launching on, as well as what platforms will be supported at launch.

Here’s everything you need to know:

  • Disney+ will launch in Canada and the Netherlands, as well as the United States on November 12. The service will cost $8.99CAD per month (or $89.99 per year) in Canada and €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year) in the Netherlands. And as previously announced, it will cost $6.99 a month in the US.
  • On November 19, the service will launch in Australia and New Zeland, priced at $8.99AUD per month (or $89.99 per year) and $9.99NZD per month (or $99.99 per year), respectively.

Disney+ will be available on the majority of platforms, including:

  • Apple (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV, and fully integrated with the Apple TV app). Customers will subscribe to Disney+ via in-app purchases, meaning Apple will get a cut on the subscription prices.
  • Google (Android phones, Android TV devices, Google Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices)
  • Microsoft (Xbox One)
  • Sony (all Android-based Sony TVs and PlayStation 4)
  • Roku (Roku streaming players and Roku TV models)

The only major platform missing is Amazon’s Fire devices, and Disney isn’t saying if the company plans on launching Disney+ on Amazon’s Fire devices anytime soon. It’s not clear exactly why Amazon’s devices aren’t supported, though.

    But what is the cost for the US? You and Disney seem to have left USD out.

    Also, I assume "Son" (in your platform list) is supposed to be Sony.

      That was announced previously...

      If you go to the link in the article you will find this...

      (This news follows the recent announcement that consumers in the U.S. will get a new and exciting value proposition with a bundled offering of Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for just $12.99USD. This means they get all of the Disney+ programming plus thousands of live sporting events, sports-themed original series and award-winning sports documentaries from ESPN+; as well as Hulu’s award-winning original content and on-demand streaming library.)

      Disney+ by itself will be $6.99 per month in the US or $70 for a year.

      Probably only applies to a small portion of the potential audience, but they are offering a special discounted price of $4/month (with a 3 year commitment) to Gold-level members of Disney's D23 Fan Club as well as to anyone who attends (and signs up at) this weekend's D23 Expo in Anaheim. It didn't specify, but I suspect that basically means paying $144 up front for a 3 year subscription.

    Any idea on UK release dates and costs? My kids will demand I throw money at Disney for this, lol.

    as long they already built an UWP for xbox one, they should release also to windows 10, why they don't?

    I would love to see a Win10 app (UWP or PWA, either way) in the Store on Win10, or at the very least, a website I could pin.

    I cant wait for this service to come to South Africa,

    I read some where that they want to be worldwide within 2 years of launch

    Surprising to see Australia get it before a lot of Europe, particularly the UK.

    I'm sure someone will say this could be due to Brexit (and who knows, maybe it is?)
