Which if true, makes me wonder how Canadians (or the rest of the world come to think of it) will be able to watch the new Star Wars series when it starts this year.

NEWS:

Disney will begin its international roll-out of Disney Plus on the same day – Nov. 12 – that the direct-to-consumer service launches in the U.S., with a push into Canada and the Netherlands, followed a week later by Australia and New Zealand.

In addition, Disney’s Direct-to-Consumer and International group announced Monday that it had reached global agreements with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku, and Sony to distribute the Disney Plus app across partner mobile and connected-TV devices.

In the U.S., access to Disney Plus will cost $6.99 per month. Pricing plans in the first four international markets will be roughly comparable. In Canada, the service will cost $8.99 (Canadian) per month (or $89.99 per year), and in the Netherlands, the price will be €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year).

On Nov. 19, Disney Plus will launch in Australia and New Zealand, priced at $8.99 (Australian) per month (or $89.99 per year) and $9.99 (New Zealand) per month (or $99.99 per year), respectively.

$8.99 CDN plus tax per month or $89.99 CDN plus tax for the year. Not bad!

Well, that was a very quick resolutions of the concern I expressed Sunday! Thanks everyone!

So about $7.50 a month on an annual subscription.

Looks like (in the USA at least) it will be available on most devices (including Roku) except Amazon Fire. https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/19/2...d-subscription

Presumably Canada will be similar.

I’d say as well that it will be on the same devices as was stated for the US, If not then Apple TV and iPhone/IPad is probably the most likely first because they seem to get most newer things first at times.

At launch, you’ll be able to stream Disney+ on these platforms and products:

Apple TV (tvOS)
Android mobile devices
Android TV
Chromecast
Desktop web browsers
iPad (iPadOS)
iPhone (iOS)
PlayStation 4
Roku streaming players

It wasn't explicitly stated but the Canadian service should support the same devices.

Why not Amazon Fire stick?

So will Netflix Canada no longer carry any marvel movies?
Can we watch every old movies/cartoons on Disney+ like Toy story 1 to 4, Aladdin and ...?

Yeah.. while the IOS/Android is great.. would like it more on my smart TV, etc. (samsung)


Their plan in the long run, is to have like EVERYTHING on there. But may not be all on there to start.
My guess with the netflix stuff, is that whatever is on there will stay there till the current contract expires, then will be removed from netflix (and you wont see NEW stuff on there)

Disney will be airing all it's new content on it's own service. Licensing for content on other platforms will not be renewed once current agreements expire. That content will only be available on Disney services after that happens. It's difficult to find dates for specific titles but it's likely that they vary with provider and also depends on the release date for more recent titles. Expect all Disney content to disappear from Netflix over the next few months or years.

Hopefully a website will pop up in the coming weeks/months that has all this information collected for us in one place. I'm assuming FX Canada has The Simpsons for a few more years?

I don't see Samsung not supporting Disney+ for long. It's probably in development. Some TVs have Roku or Android interfaces so they may get it at launch. It would be nice if TV makers could agree on a standardized TV interface.

That's traditional linear cable TV rights, I doubt Rogers has streaming rights to The Simpsons back catalog.
