Disney Plus to expand European footprint

Streaming service set to launch in another 20 European countries this summer

Disney will be launching its DTC service Disney Plus in over 20 more European countries this summer.

In total, the streaming service will launch in 42 countries and 11 territories across Europe, Africa and West Asia.

Among the countries Disney Plus will add to its European footprint are Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, and Vatican City.

The launches are likely to help the streamer see a boost in subscriptions after it reported reaching 118.1 million Disney Plus subscribers in Q4 2021, up 2.1 million from the end of Q3.

A decline from the prior quarter’s 12 million new subscribers, the results were consistent with CEO Bob Chapek’s warning in September that the service would “hit some headwinds” in Q4.

Disney has not announced specific dates for the new launches.
