Disney+ sets June 2022 as launch date for South Africa

Tuesday 17 August 2021 | 09:57 CET | News
The Walt Disney Company plans to launch its video streaming service Disney+ in South Africa next summer, in June 2022, Media24 reported. Disney pushed back the launch to enable a broader introduction next summer, in also parts of the Middle East, as well as in South Africa. The rest of the African continent seems to be excluded from this broader launch, at least for now.
