The eagerly anticipated service 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. In Australia it will be priced at $8.99AUD per month (or $89.99 AUD per year) and in New Zealand $9.99NZD per month (or $99.99 NZD per year). The package is then expected to launch in most major markets within the first two years.

Disney+ customers will be able to access high-profile exclusive content and nearly every movie in Disney’s expansive library from brands including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

The House of Mouse has also reached global agreements with nearly all the major platforms to distribute the Disney+ app across partner mobile and connected TV devices, including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku and Sony. It recently announced a distribution agreement with Charter Communications to deliver the service.

The global moves come on the back of Disney announcing that consumers in the US will be able to get a bundled offering of Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for $12.99. This means they will be able to obtain all of the Disney+ programming plus thousands of live sporting events, sports-themed original series and sports documentaries from ESPN+ as well as Hulu’s original content and on-demand streaming library.
