Disney+ closes its first distribution agreement in the US with Verizon

Days before the launch of Disney+, scheduled for next November 12th, Verizon announced that it will offer a free subscription year to the OTT. As detailed by the company, the offer will be valid for current clients with the unlimited plan, and for those who subscribe for the company’s Fios broadband or 5G plan before June 1st next year. After the 12-month period, those who wish to continue accessing Disney+ contents must pay the monthly subscription established by Disney.

Recently, Disney announced Disney+ full offer, which will include the company’s full catalog, with Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, Fox and National Geographic productions, and original content. Disney + estimates 350 productions available for its launch, according to the official announcement made days ago.

On its D23 Expo 2019 event, Disney has also announced that Disney+ will arrive at Latin America in 2020, although the exact date has not been confirmed yet. In August, the company confirmed that, once launched in the US, the OTT will begin its global expansion ‘with plans to be in all major regions of the world in the next two years’. The first two countries in which the platform will be launched after the US will be Canada and Holland, to later arrive at Australia and New Zealand.
