If you were planning to join Disney+ today to watch the new Star Wars saga The Mandalorian, we have some bad news for you. Australia isn’t actually getting the service today. Unfortunately, Aussie Star Wars fans are being forced to wait a little longer. Here are the details.
Why is Disney Plus delayed in Australia?
As originally reported on Gizmodo, Australia has been excluded from the initial Disney+ launch. (This delay had been implemented from the beginning.)
Only the US, Canada and the Netherlands will be receiving access on November 12. The good news is that Aussies don’t need to wait too long.
When does Disney Plus launch in Australia?
Disney+ is set to launch in Australia (and New Zealand) on Tuesday, November 19. For the numerically challenged, that’s just seven days from now.
How much does Disney Plus cost in Australia?
Disney+ will set you back $8.99 per month, which is decidedly cheaper than Netflix, Foxtel or Stan. There’s no “premium” tier either – the base plan grants you access to 4K video, HDR and four concurrent streams. You can also sign up for an annual subscription which costs $89 – a saving of around $1.50 per month.

Here’s everything you need to know, including how much it will cost Aussie subscribers.”]
