As Disney gets closer to its Nov. 12 release of Disney Plus, the company is finally checking off a few missing boxes. After most recently announcing a Netflix-rival $13 per month bundle that throws in subscriptions to Hulu and ESPN Plus, we now know which devices will be able to stream the forthcoming service.
In an announcement Monday, Disney announced that its new platform will be coming to most of the devices you'd expect. The list includes:
- Apple products (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV)
- Google products (Android phones, Android TV devices, Google Chromecast and Chromecast built-in device)
- Roku (streaming players and TVs)
- Sony's PlayStation 4 and Android TV-based televisions
- Microsoft's Xbox One
There are, however, some notable exceptions with no mention of support on Samsung Smart TVs or Amazon's Fire TV platform.
In addition to detailing device support, Disney also revealed that the platform will launch in Canada and the Netherlands on Nov. 12, with pricing running 9 Canadian dollars per month (or $90 per year) and 7 euros per month (or 70 euros per year), respectively.
On Nov. 19 the rollout will extend to Australia and New Zealand with pricing at AU$9 per month (or AU$90 per year) and $10 New Zealand dollars per month (or $100 per year), respectively.
In the US Disney Plus will be available in that aforementioned $13 per month Hulu/ESPN Plus bundle or on its own for $7 per month (or $70 per year).
With the D23 Expo set to kick off on Aug. 23 this week should be a busy one for Disney and Disney Plus. with the company already taking to social media to begin promoting the new streaming service.
