We know that Disney Plus will be available in the U.S. for $6.99 / month or bundled with Hulu and ESPN for $12.99. But what about these other countries and territories? Here’s what we know so far:

The service is expected to launch across a number of other territories and the studio is currently in negotiations to make this happen.

We’ll keep you updated on the company’s future plans with the streaming platform as more information becomes available.
