New details on the release of Disney+ in Taiwan and South Korea have recently been revealed by Ctee, who is reporting that the new streaming service will launch in 2021.
Disney is currently in active negotiations with three Taiwan telecommunication companies, Chunghwa Telecom, TaiwanMobile and Far East Tone.
Disney+ has already launched in over 20 countries around the world, including a number of countries within Asia such as India, Japan and Indonesia. This is in addition to other recent reports that Disney+ is getting ready to launch in South East Asia in 2021.
The three companies are also in talks with Disney to team up in a similar deal to how Disney+ launched with Verizon in the United States and NTT DoCoMo in Japan.
Earlier this year, it was reported that South Korea’s top three mobile carriers including SK Telecom Co, have been trying to partner with Disney and made it a priority to do so.
Releasing Disney+ in Taiwan would be a major stepping stone for the streaming service to enter the Asia market. Netflix only launched in the region two years ago, when it teamed up with Chunghwa Telecom.
More details on the continued international rollout of Disney+ is expected to be revealed during the Walt Disney Companies Investor Day, which is taking place on Thursday 10th December.
