Okay, who wished upon a star? Yes, the rumours are true: Disney’s on-demand subscription service, Disney Plus, will be streaming in Hong Kong starting from the 16th of November. The service will also finally be available in South Korea and Taiwan, while Disney Plus Japan will be expanding its content range in October.
The initial announcement in August came off the back of Walt Disney Co. third quarter earnings filings, where statics showed such positive response from the likes of Australia, Japan, Singapore and Thailand. We’re eagerly awaiting for more details to be released, however it is expected that Hong Kongers will have access to content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star.
Disney Plus is currently available in 61 countries and 21 languages across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, with Disney Plus HK to join the ranks in due course. While details are still to come with what content we’ll have and how much the subscription will cost, we’ll be updating this post as soon as we know more. Meanwhile you can also keep your eye out for updates on the Disney Plus Hong Kong site here.
