Disney picks the Netherlands to launch Disney+ streaming in Europe


The Disney group will launch its new streaming service Disney+ in the Netherlands as well as the US and Canada on November 12.

The decision to opt for the Netherlands as the European launch pad is due to the good digital infrastructure and the fact the country is ‘tech savvy’ a spokesman said.

The streaming service will also support virtually every device and operating system from day one, including iOS, Apple TV, Chromecast and others.

The service will cost €7 a month in the Netherlands, slightly less than main competitor Netflix and will include its latest movies including Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the company told Reuters.

Apple has already announced plans to launch its streaming service in the autumn.
