Disney has announced through its online help page that the price of a Disney+ subscription in New Zealand will be increasing on Thursday, 8th December 2022.
Currently, the price of a Disney+ subscription in New Zealand is $12.99 a month, or you can have an annual subscription for $129.99 a year.
The price of a monthly Disney+ subscription will increase by $2 to $14.99, and the annual price will be going up $20 to $149.99 a year on 8th December 2022.
Pricing on partner device platforms may vary, depending on platform limitations from country-specific pricing and/or currencies in the region. Discounted early-purchase pricing may also apply in certain regions.
On the same day, the price of Disney+ will also be increasing in Australia. Disney+ is also launching an ad-supported tier in the United States on the same day as the new price hike. Disney has previously announced this ad-supported tier will be launching internationally in 2023.
To help save money, if you are a monthly subscriber, it might be beneficial for you to upgrade to an annual subscription before the 7th of December 2022.
Disney has recently said it is going on a cost-cutting measure to make Disney+ more profitable, and a direct price rise will no doubt help the streaming service become more profitable. And it’s likely that this price rise is going to be coming to other countries soon.
