Disney has released the first details regarding the international rollout of its Disney+ streaming service. Canada and the Netherlands join the United States as part of the initial launch on Nov. 12 2019, with Australia and New Zealand gaining the service a week later on Nov. 19.
Disney+ will run Canadians C$8.99 per month, or $89.99 per year. Holland residents will pay €6.99 per month, or €69.99 per year. Australian cost is A$8.99 per month, or $89.99 per year, and New Zealand's price is NZ$9.99 per month, or $99.99 a year.
According to Deadline, the studio is in active talks to add more countries to its list of available territories at launch.
Disney+ will cost U.S. residents $6.99 per month when it launches later this year, with an upgraded package including ESPN+ and Hulu available for $12.99. The Hulu tier included in the bundle will be the service’s ad-supported model, which is currently priced at $5.99 per month. ESPN+ costs $4.99 a month.
Disney became Hulu’s controlling shareholder in May, mere months after the media company paid $71 billion to acquire 21st Century Fox assets and the company’s share in the streaming service. Disney already has lofty plans for Hulu, as it has announced two Marvel live-action series starring supernatural warriors Ghost Rider and Daimon Helstrom.
Disney also plans to bring a slew of adult-oriented animated series to the streamer in the form of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show and Marvel’s Howard The Duck. At Comic-Con International, it was revealed that the previously announced Marvel Studios-run series will debut over a two-year stretch, and will actively factor into the MCU's Phase Four storytelling.
