For the moment, the streaming platform has not revealed the prices of the subscriptions that will be offered in these new markets.
Disney+ was launched on November 19, 2019 in the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands before being available in France on April 7, 2020. Since then, and thanks to its impressive catalog including both Marvel and Star Wars franchises, the streaming platform has become a real competitor to Netflix. By launching in Africa, the Middle East and various islands, Disney + could disrupt the growth of Netflix, which has already been undermined.
Despite everything, Disney + had “only” 118 million subscribers at the end of 2021, only two million more than in the previous quarter. To boost subscriptions, the platform has already announced a salvo of programs with 60 unscripted series, 30 comedy series, 25 drama series, 15 docuseries and mini-series and 10 animated series.
