After a long wait, Disney+ is finally launching in the Philippines on Thursday, 17th November 2022 and it will be the home of movies and TV shows from Disney’s iconic brands, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic and Star.
Disney+ will be accessible on a wide selection of mobile and televisions subject to users’ chosen subscription plans, including smartphones and tablets (Android or iOS), smart TVs such as Samsung and LG and connected TV devices, including Google TV and other Android TV OS, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD and Chromecast.
There will be two tiers available, Mobile and Premium:
A Mobile Plan for P159 ($3) monthly or P1,150 ($20) annually
A Premium Plan for P369 ($6) monthly or P2,950 ($50) annually
Based on their chosen subscription plans, consumers will be able to access high-quality viewing, with up to four concurrent streams available only with the premium plan, personalized recommendations, and the ability to create up to seven different user profiles per account. The Mobile Plan will be a little more limited, with just one concurrent stream at once, and it will only be available in HD (720p). 4K will only be available for subscribers on a premium plan.
It looks like the Philippines will be getting the newer version of the Disney+ app, which recently launched across the Middle East and Africa, which is a hybrid of the Disney+ Hotstar and Disney+ apps. It’s also interesting that the Philippines is not getting the Hotstar branding like other countries within South East Asia.
David Shin, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Hong Kong, The Walt Disney Company, said in a statement:
“Through Disney+, we are opening new doors of entertainment to everyone with our heritage of unparalleled storytelling, creative excellence and cutting-edge content delivery.
We are excited that consumers in the Philippines can soon connect with their beloved characters and brands and enjoy access to some of the world’s most original and iconic stories, told by the world’s most talented creators.”
