The Walt Disney Company's streaming service is expanding again, and it will soon launch in new countries from Europe and also in the Middle East and South Africa. The Disney Plus platform finally confirmed it would become available in 42 new countries and 11 new territories this summer, so all the fans that kept waiting for the service to become available in their country are pretty excited following the announcement.
Right now, a subscription with the platform offers commercial-free content from Disney and Pixar, titles from Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic, as well as The Simpsons and some extra content through its new general entertainment content brand in select markets around the globe, the Star service (the latest from 20th Century Studios, Disney Television Studios, FX, Searchlight Pictures, and more).
Moreover, you can host virtual movie nights with GroupWatch, download content on mobile devices, and watch several titles in 4K and Dolby Atmos - and it even has a growing list of IMAX Enhanced titles.

The service offers Disney Plus original movies and series (such as Marvel's Moon Knight, for example), feature-length films, documentaries, live-action, and animated series, and shorts, covering all tastes - kids movies, films adults would enjoy, sad movies, action movies, 4K movies, and so on.
Until the exact launch date for each of these is announced, you can go to the Disney Plus page and enter your email address to receive news regarding the platform, and hopefully, they'll send you an email when the service launches locally.
The Disney Plus streaming platform has a single plan that you can pay for monthly or annually, and it has slightly different costs depending on the country. The standard price for US customers is $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year, so it should have approximately the same value upon launch in the new countries and territories.
Disney Plus is already available in the following 18 countries in EMEA. If you live in one of the countries below and want to become a customer, you can subscribe to Disney Plus right now.
