The Disney+ streaming service was confirmed to land in Canada back in April, but local pricing was not announced—until today.
According to Disney, ““Disney+ will launch in Canada and the Netherlands in tandem with the US on November 12th, priced at $8.99CAD per month (or $89.99 per year) and €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year), respectively,” said the company in a press release (via The Verge).
So Canadians will be paying $8.99 CAD per month or $89.99 CAD annually ($7.50/month) for Disney+, which is cheaper than Netflix, which starts at $9.99, for example.
Disney also announced devices Disney+ will stream on, thanks to global agreements made with other companies, including Apple. The full list of platforms you can stream Disney+ on are below:
- Apple TV (tvOS)
- Android mobile devices
- Android TV
- Desktop web browsers
- iPad (iPadOS)
- iPhone (iOS)
- PlayStation 4
- Roku streaming players
- Roku TV
- Xbox One
Amazon’s Fire TV is missing from the list and there’s no word on when support may come. Also, it’s unknown if Canada will get a bundle service like the United States, which includes ESPN and Hulu (with ads) for $12.99 USD. We’re guessing most likely not.
For Apple users, you will be able to subscribe to Disney+ from iOS and Apple TV. This means if you fund your Apple ID with 20% off iTunes cards from Costco, you’ll save on Disney+ every month.
Also, Disney did not confirm if the service will be supported by the TV app from Apple. Disney told The Verge it plans to integrate into Apple’s TV app.
Disney will kick off its D23 Expo this week in Anaheim, California, and more details may come regarding Disney+.
Will you be subscribing to Disney+ when it launches in Canada this November?
