Disney+ to launch in MENA and Europe this summer

Among the major new markets, the service will launch in South Africa, Turkey, Poland and the United Arab Emirates.

Disney+ will launch in 42 countries and 11 new territories this summer, including 16 markets across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). 

The MENA countries include Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

With exclusive original content and thousands of episodes and movies from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and general entertainment from Star, Disney+ is the streaming home for some of the world’s most beloved stories.

The 11 territories include Faroe Islands, French Polynesia, French Southern Territories, St. Pierre and Miquelon Overseas Collective, Åland Islands, Sint Maarten, Svalbard & Jan Mayen, British Indian Ocean Territory, Gibraltar, Pitcairn Islands and St Helena.

No country-by-country launch dates, prices or subscription plans were revealed.

Disney+ titles currently run on the OSN Streaming app and were a major USP when the platform relaunched in April last year.

When BroadcastPro ME reached out for comment, a spokesperson from OSN said: “We are happy and excited to have Disney+ in this region! Our relationship with Disney will be ongoing even after they launch their platform.”
