Walt Disney announced it would launch its Disney+ streaming service in Canada in mid-November to compete with Netflix and other similar services as consumers increasingly abandon traditional cable.
The California-based entertainment giant said November 12 will mark the global launch of the service, starting with the United States, Canada and the Netherlands.
Canadian residents will pay $8.99 per month or $89.99 per year to get access to Disney series and films from various brands, including Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars, the company said.
Disney+ will launch in Australia and New Zealand on November 19th.
Disney announced that the service will be available on nearly all major mobile and connected TV devices upon launch, with global distribution agreements in place with Apple, Google, Microsoft, Roku and Sony.
The upcoming launch comes after Disney ended its licensing relationship with Netflix and began removing some of its content from the service.
