Disney to broadcast Disney+ content on its pay TV channels before launching the platform in Latin America

A few days before Disney+ is launched in Latin America, The Walt Disney Company announced that, between November 11th and 16th, some content that will be exclusively available on the platform will be broadcast through Fox Channel, FX, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior and National Geographic.

‘A few days before the launch of Disney + in Latin America – scheduled for November 17th -, multiple pay TV audiences are invited to enjoy a sample of the unique combination of content that Disney + will offer to all members of the family’ said Diego Lerner, President at The Walt Disney Company Latin America. ‘This unique opportunity is given thanks to the strategic role that linear channels feature in our intention and commitment to reach the widest audiences with the Disney + content offering’, he added.

As reported by The Walt Disney Company, the initiative includes the exclusive debut of the first episodes of various content, such as the documentary “The Imagineering Story”, on November 11th on National Geographic; the comedy ‘Diario de una Futura Presidenta’, on November 12th on Disney Channel; and the original production ‘El Ristorantino de Arnoldo’, entirely produced in Latin America, on November 13th  on Disney Junior.

On November 14th, Disney XD and FX will broadcast the first two episodes of the ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ series. On November 15th, Fox will air the first two episodes of the series ‘The Mandalorian’, content specially produced for Disney+. Finally, on November 16th, the day before the launch of Disney+ in Latin America, Disney Channel will broadcast ‘High School Musical: El Musical: La Serie’, a spin-off of the High School Musical film saga.

Disney made it clear that the broadcast of this content on pay TV will take place only once, as a strategy to show part of the content that will be part of the Disney+ catalog as of November 17th. However, as recently reported by Televisa in a conference with analysts, Disney+ will be offered as an ‘additional service’ for Izzi subscribers.
