Disney has announced that it has made a new deal with Rogers Communication to offer the ad-supported version of Disney+ is now available to Rogers TV customers at no additional cost.

As the home of sports and entertainment in Canada, this agreement brings Rogers video subscribers the best of TV and the iconic originals and classics from Disney+ together in one package. 

Disney+ is the streaming home for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more, as well as exclusive original programs, documentaries, live-action and animated series, and short-form content. Viewers can enjoy the current season of The Kardashians, Criminal Minds: Evolution, and Doctor Who, as well as upcoming premieres like FX’s The Bear Season 3 (June 27th), Bluey Minisodes (July 3rd), Only Murders in the Building Season 4 (August 27th), and more. 

Bret Leech, President, Residential Services, Rogers, said in a statement:

“We want to deliver more value to our customers and create a more seamless viewing experience.  By integrating Disney+, we’re adding even more value to our entertainment packages and making it easier than ever for customers to enjoy the shows and movies they love.”

Justin Connolly, President of Platform Distribution, Disney Entertainment, added:

“Rogers is one of our most valued and long-standing Canadian partners.  With the inclusion of our unrivaled Disney+ content as part of Rogers premier TV packages moving forward, we are embracing consumer convenience and meeting them where they are.”

Roger’s Take: Following the decision to offer Disney+ with ads to Spectrum cable customers in the US last year, it was only a matter of time before more TV suppliers would offer this. With traditional television viewing decreasing, TV providers want to keep their customers, and it’s also a big help for Disney, as it will increase the number of people having access to the platform, which will increase the amount of advertising money coming in.  Though this offer won’t be much help for those who want the service without ads.
