Disney+ launches in new 16 markets Middle East and North Africa [MENA]

Disney+ continues breaking new grounds in the streaming space. The Walt Disney Company is launching their streaming service in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). 

This comes after they launched in Mzansi (South Africa) last month. It’s fair to say the streamer is gaining the momentum and Netflix is getting the pressure and scared at the same damn time. 

Unlike like South Africa and the USA market, subscribers in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya and eight other markets will now have a variant version of the Disney+ Hotstar app, which subscribers in India and South-East Asia also have. 

Disney+ Hotstar is the Indian streaming service and offers 100,000+ hours of content across nine languages, plus live sports programming (cricket and football/soccer etc.). 

The company tweeted: مرحباً بمتابعينا في الشرق الأوسط وشمال إفريقيا!

The expansion for the company doesn’t end there, the service will also be launched in more countries across Europe on June 14.
