Disney+ Streaming Service to Launch This November in Australia


The Walt Disney Company has finally confirmed the arrival of their very own streaming service, Disney+, in Australia and New Zealand on 19 November. Prepare for an amazing array of content from the world of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and more with the launch of Disney+ in Australia.

It’s going to be a whole new world of TV with the upcoming launch of Disney+. Ever since it was announced earlier this year that Disney is coming up with their own streaming service, several news and teasers of new shows have been made, which include continuation of fan favourite sagas such as Marvel’s Avengers.

Shows and Other Content to Stream on Disney+

Disney+, or Disney Plus, will be the home of some of your favourite stories ever told and some of the best characters you’ve grown up with over the years. Upon its launch, Disney+ will have more than 7,500 series episodes and more than 500 movies — with about 100 of those films being more recent releases. Expect to see classic Disney and Pixar animated films, as well as blockbuster hits from Marvel and Star Wars such as Avengers: Endgame, The Last Jedi, and the recent Toy Story 4.

To give you an idea of what other shows and films you can stream on Disney+, check out this top 10 list of newly produced shows that will be made available on the streaming platform within its first and second year:

  • The Mandalorian
  • High School Musical: The Musical: The Series
  • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
  • Lamp Life
  • Monsters At Work
  • WandaVision
  • Loki
  • Marvel’s What If…?
  • Hawkeye
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars

If that’s not enough, the company has also projected that by their fifth year, they’ll have an annual production slate to include 50 series and 10 new movies every year. Just imagine, the total number of episodes that you can stream on Disney+ can grow beyond 10,000 and will have more than 700 films in its content library.

Watch new and classic TV and movies from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and 21st Century Fox from one streaming service.

How Much Is a Disney+ Subscription?

It’s no secret how Disney’s streaming platform is about to enter an already populated market. However, they do have an edge with their surprisingly low pricing of just $8.99AUD per month (or $89.99 per year). Compared to Australia’s leading streaming providers, Netflix and Stan, Disney+ ranks as the lowest price among the three with Netflix’s Basic plan at $9.99/month and Stan at $10/month.

When it comes to free trial offers, no announcements have been made as of yet but given how most streaming providers operate, there’s a big chance that Disney+ will likewise offer a free trial duration to new subscribers as well.
