Binge Ready? Disney+ Philippines will be Launched this Month!5 November 2022
Over three years after its initial introduction in 2019, Disney+ will finally provide a full-country membership in the Philippines that grants access to all of the service's Disney Originals, Pixar, and other films.
Disney fans in the Philippines may finally celebrate as Disney+ is coming to the country without using a reliable VPN or the largest server network VPN. Starting on November 17th, Filipino Disney lovers will be able to watch their favorite Star Wars, Disney, The Simpsons, Marvel, Pixar, National Geographic, and other programs directly on their devices.
Moreover, Disney+ in the Philippines will include not just its famed brand offerings, but also a portfolio of Korean entertainment thanks to a collaboration with Star Network.
Notably, Disney's Hotstar logo will not be associated with the Filipino edition of the service in contrast to the Malaysian and Indonesian versions.
With its anticipated release later this year, the Philippines will join Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore as the fourth Southeast Asian country to get access to the entertainment behemoth's huge streaming network.
