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.
