Disney Plus NZ Launch

Disney Plus NZ Launch
Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Disney Plus NZ – the Disney streaming service that we all knew was coming will be available in New Zealand from November 19, 2019.  The cost of the Disney Plus (Disney +) service will be based on a monthly subscription fee that will set you back less than ten bucks a month at just NZ$9.99, the company has announced in the last day. 

Disney Plus, with the brand styling and logo of Disney+, is launching in New Zealand just one week after its global debut in the United States, Canada and Holland on November 12.

In a change from some other streaming services, the Disney+ subscription will also be available as a one-off annual plan which effectively gives a discount of 20% as Kiwi customers will be able to buy a year's subscription to Disney+ for NZ$99.99.

The new streaming service from Disney will feature more than 500 films and 7500 episodes of TV from the first date of launch including a huge range of your favourites from the past and present.  The back catalogues that the service will include covers Star Wars, Marvel, The Simpsons, National Geographic, Disney and Pixar, among other brands.

How can I watch Disney+ in NZ?

The Disney Plus streaming service will operate on a wide range of different platforms and Disney has already confirmed Disney Plus will be available on the following platforms/systems:

  • Apple (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV and fully integrated with the Apple TV app)
  • Google (Android phones, Android TV devices, Google Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices)
  • Microsoft (Xbox One)
  • Sony (all Android-based Sony TVs and PlayStation 4)
  • Roku (Roku streaming players and Roku TV models)

Disney has announced that they plan to spread the service internationally within two years of its initial launch as a wholehearted challenge to the dominance of Netflix where a number of its titles and movies stream at present.

One of the additional features of Disney+ will be the exclusive content that is being developed for the channel, featuring some of the most popular characters and universes.  This includes a really exciting exclusive for Disney Plus, the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian, on which New Zealander Taika Waititi is a director.

When Disney made the announcement they also activated the Facebook and Instagram accounts for Disney Plus New Zealand.
Exciting times all round!
