Today, the Walt Disney Company continues the global expansion of its streaming service, Disney+, across 16 markets across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
The launch of Disney+ gives fans across these regions access to exclusive original content and thousands of episodes and movies from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and general entertainment from Star.
This includes a vast number of original shows like “Ms Marvel”, “The Mandalorian”, “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, “Moon Knight”, “Only Murders In The Building”, “The Dropout”, “The Kardashians” and much more.
Full list of MENA countries (in alphabetical order) with monthly and annual pricing:
Disney+ will be launching in more countries across Europe on June 14th.
Users will have access to high-quality viewing, up to four concurrent streams, unlimited downloads on up to ten devices, and the ability to set up to seven different profiles, including the ability for parents to set Kids Profiles to access age-appropriate content.
Following on from the launch of Disney+ in South Africa last month, the Disney+ app being offered across the Middle East and Africa is different to the app being used elsewhere in the world. The Disney+ app across the Middle East and Africa is a variant version of the Disney+ Hotstar app that is used in India and South-East Asia. While the content isn’t much different, the app does have a different user interface and also has a different login system, which uses a mobile telephone number rather than a Disney ID.
This will mean that if you are visiting the Middle East or Africa and try to use your Disney+ app, it might not work. It also will be the same situation for those from the Middle East or Africa visiting other countries trying to access Disney+ on their devices.
