Disney Plus launched in mid-November in Canada, at $ 8.99 per month
Walt Disney announced that it would launch its Disney Plus streaming service in Canada in mid-November, attempting to compete with Netflix and other similar services as consumers move away from traditional cable TV .
The California-based entertainment giant said November 12 marks the global launch of the service, starting with the United States, Canada and the Netherlands.
Canadian residents will pay $ 8.99 a month or $ 89.99 a year to access Disney series and movies from its various brands, including Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars, the company said.
The launch of Disney Plus in Australia and New Zealand will follow on November 19th.
Disney announced that the service would be available on almost all major mobile TV devices and connected from its launch with global distribution agreements in effect with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku and Sony.
The upcoming launch comes after Disney ended its licensing relationship with Netflix and started extracting some of its content from the service.
