What you need to know
- Disney+ is now available in Korea and Taiwan.
- Apple TV+ just went live in Korea this week.
Disney+ will be available for KRW9,900 ($8.40) per month or KRW99,000 ($84) per year in Korea, while Taiwanese customers will pay TWD 270 ($9.71) a month and TWD 2,790 ($100.4) per year. As a Variety report notes, today's go-live follows launches in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand earlier this year. Disney+ is also set to become available in Hong Kong early next week, too.
Content specific to the region will be available, the report also notes.
These new launches come after it was confirmed that Disney+ subscription numbers continue to grow — it now has more than 118 million worldwide, a 60% increase on the same period last year. The expansion isn't cheap, however, with increased costs showing that Disney is determined to continue its rate of growth.
