Disney+: List of supported devices, launch date, pricing and countries that will get it Disney has finally revealed what devices will be supported once the new subscription service, Disney+, will launch in November. Service is set to launch with pretty aggressive pricing, set to be $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year, if paid annually.
At the launch, the list of supported platforms and devices is already pretty impressive, with just one notable exception there:
  • Apple TV
  • Android (phones and tablets)
  • Android TV
  • Chromecast
  • Desktop web browsers, including Chrome
  • iPad
  • iPhone
  • Playstation 4
  • Roku devices
  • Roku TV
  • Xbox One

Most notable "not there" in the list is definitely the Amazon's Fire TV.

Launch countries and pricing


As said, the service will launch in November. On November 12th to be exact, in United States, Canada and Netherlands. List of all countries that will get the service in November are (but not necessarily on 12th of November):
  • United States
  • Canada ($8.99CAD/mo or $89.99CAD/year)
  • Netherlands (6.99/mo or 69.99/year)
  • Australia ($8.99AUD/mo or $89.99AUD/year)
  • New Zealand ($9.99NZD/mo or $99.99NZD/year)




Disney hopes to launch the "Netflix killer" service in other countries, too, but it will have a massive task ahead, trying to secure the full content rights for each upcoming country. Despite Disney owning most of the content it will deliver through Disney+, it might have licensed parts of that content to other players in other countries, exclusively. Thus, those contracts need to be renegotiated in order to launch properly, with all the most sought-after content (Star Wars, Disney's own movies, etc).
