Disney+ Canada Update

Disney+ will be online in Canada on November 12th, 2019 according to their official site and according to several sources the monthly subscription rate for Canadian will be $8.99 (or $89.99 yearly).

According to Deadline, “Customers will be able to subscribe to Disney+ directly or via in-app purchases and will be available on a slew of platforms including Apple, Google, Microsoft’s Xbox One, Sony via its Android TVs and the Playstation 4 and Roku.

There’s no news on when Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic titles will be removed from Netflix’s catalog in Canada. But Reuters confirms that “Avengers: Endgame”, “Aladdin” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” will stream exclusively on the new service.

Bloomberg has also reported that Apple TV will be available by November but no specific information about Canada has been made available.
