As reported by specialized websites, as of this Tuesday, September 1st, several of the Disney titles will no longer be available on Netflix and will become part of Disney+, where they will be available exclusively. Disney’s new SVOD OTT will officially launch in Latin America right next November 17th.
‘As of November 17th (the date on which Disney+ will be available in Latin America), Disney+ will become the first and only streaming access option with the exclusive presence of all available film content from our brands. Disney + will also be the only service to offer the full catalog of all Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films with unlimited and permanent access for its subscribers. In addition, it brings together all of Disney’s animated classics for the first time in one exclusive place. The entertainment initiative will be complemented with a robust offer of original Disney+ series and films, a self-produced label, with a variety of titles that can be watched only on our platform, as well as original content produced locally in several countries of the region for the most diverse audiences’, they reported to Nextv News from Disney Latin America.
Days before confirming the platform’s arrival date in the region, Diego Lerner, President at The Walt Disney Company Latin America, confirmed the complete Disney+ catalog in Latin America. Likewise, Netflix reported having recorded more than 36 million subscribers in the region at the end of Q2 2020, and has just launched Watch Free, a website where it enabled a selection of series and movies to watch for free. Additionally, WarnerMedia has recently confirmed that HBO Max, its new SVOD OTT, will start its international expansion in Latin America.
