Disney have today confirmed to the Verge that its upcoming Disney+ subscription service will be made available to Apple customers across Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.
Integrating its Disney+ TV shows and movies with the Apple TV app’s Up Next feature, users will be able to add content to their queue which will launch the Disney+ app. Whilst this is great news, Disney have yet to commit to Apple channel support for the upcoming service . If they were to, it would allow users to sign up directly from the TV app, share across 6 family members through Family Sharing as-well-as view offline downloads and streams natively within the TV app.
Apple customers will be able to sign up to Disney+ for $6.99 a month through an in-app purchase once Disney+ launches on November 12th in the United States and Canada with the service launching a week later in the Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia .
Of course with Disney+ working with Apple’s TV app, its possible that Apple Channel support is still being negotiated. Another possible scenario is that some details are being held back for Apple’s iPhone event in September with shared stage time only benefitting Apple and Disney.
Details of a launch in the United Kingdom and Ireland are expected to be revealed shortly following Ofcom’s report revealing Disney Life is set to close.
More Disney+ news is expected shortly at D23.
