It is here! Disney+, the company’s streaming service, is all set to go live in Canada, the US, and the Netherlands, and it is going to be big.
The entertainment company’s Netflix rival also will prove a tough competitor for other new services, such as HBO Max and Apple TV Plus. It’s going to be exciting for sure, but if you are up for premium entertainment, you can enjoy a whole lot more action and huge rewards in our Canadian online casino. In addition to streaming content from its vast library of classics, Disney+ also will offer content from Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and other brands. Here is what you need to know about it.
When You Can Start Watching
Disney+ will launch in Canada, the US, and the Netherlands on 12 November. The initial launch will be followed by the service going live in Australia and New Zealand on 19 November. The service will be rolled out progressively over two years for the rest of the world.
It should go live in Western Europe between October this year and March 2020. It will be rolled out in Eastern Europe over 12 months, beginning in October 2020. The Latin American rollout will also start in October 2020, but it will happen over three months. It will go live in the Asia Pacific region over a two-year period, starting in October this year.
What You Can Watch
The variety of content available on Disney+ can be summarised in one word – fantastic. You can expect all the brand’s content up to a PG-13 rating. That includes the Disney brand, as well as Fox, Lucasfilm, Marvel, National Geographic, and Pixar.
You will be able to choose from Disney Vault and Signature Series hand-drawn animated films such as Snow White, the Sleeping Beauty, the Lion King, as well as live-action movies and series such as Malcolm In the Middle, the Princess Bride, and the Sound of Music.
As a treat for Marvel fans, the service will start streaming Avengers: Endgame from the launch date. Initially, the company announced that the superhero film would be added to the library on 11 December. It also will stream the Star Wars spin-off series, the Mandalorian, as well as Captain Marvel and all 30 seasons of animated sitcom, the Simpsons.
Other series and movies to be made available on Disney+ include Frozen 2, a Home Alone reboot, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, WandaVision, and Hawkeye. The company also will create content around characters such as Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk.
How Much It Will Cost
Disney+ will cost you CA$9 per month, or CA$90 per year. In the US, it will cost US$7/$70, and in the Netherlands, it will cost €7/€70. Australians can subscribe for AU$9/$90, while New Zealanders can enjoy the service for NZ$10/$100.
Features You Should Know About
One of the best things about a Disney+ subscription is that it offers free perks that you would be charged extra for on a service such as Netflix. Those perks include the likes of HDR10 and Dolby Atmos audio, 4K Ultra HD in Dolby Vision, and as many as four simultaneous streams.
You also will be able to create up to seven user profiles for household member. Users can choose from more than 200 different Disney, Marvel, Pixar, and Star Wars character avatars for their profiles.
