Disney+ has today launched in South Africa. As announced weeks ago, the standard plan in the country is set at R119 monthly. The streaming platform, which competes with Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video and others, brings over 1000 films, more than 1500 series and a slate of 200 exclusive Originals from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and general entertainment from Star.

The launch has sparked interest across the continent with people wondering when the service is set to be available in their specific countries.

A Disney Africa spokesperson has told Techish that there’s planned expansion to more African markets. Starting June 8th, Disney+ will be available in the following African countries:

  • Algeria
  • Egypt
  • Libya
  • Morocco and
  • Tunisia

There’s no sub-Saharan country on the list. The spokesperson also said, “We have nothing else to confirm at this time, but plan to expand to additional countries in the future.” So the rest of Africa will have to wait a little more to access Disney+.

From today, subscribers in South Africa will have will have access to over 60 Marvel Studios’ films including Academy Award-nominated “Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings”, “Eternals”, “Avengers: Endgame” and “Captain Marvel”, and over 80 Marvel Studios’ series including “Moon Knight”, “Loki” and “WandaVision”.
