According to CNBC, Disney CEO, Bob Iger, said a successful test in the Netherlands means the service is ready to go. The comments were made after Disney announced its fourth quarter earnings.
Iger also said Disney+ will make its way to Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV tablets in time for the November 12 streaming launch. Amazon customers will be able to get access to a 7-day trial at launch from their Fire TV devices. We should expect Disney+ support on Fire TV devices in Canada as well at launch.
The Disney CEO also said select Samsung and LG Smart TVs will get Disney+ as well.
Disney+ will have a variety of the company’s original series, movies and future releases on the service, which looks to go head to head with Netflix and more (Apple TV+ has no chance this month, really). The streaming service will also be the exclusive streaming service for the first 30 seasons of The Simpsons.
