Disney+, the House of Mouse’s streaming service, will officially launch in Hong Kong on 16 November 2021. This follows an announcement of the streaming platform’s further expansion in the Asia Pacific region back in August 2021.
The platform will be offering over 1,200 movies and 16,000 episodes of shows on its first day in Hong Kong, which will include the usual suspects from Marvel Studios like Iron Man, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Endgame, Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, What If…?, The Mandalorian, and more. Cantonese dubbing and traditional Chinese subtitles will also be included.
What’s more noteworthy is that there will be a Hong Kong movie category for these subscribers. The first set of Hong Kong movies to be made available will be the Cold War (寒战) series, The Grandmaster (一代宗师), The Mermaid (美人鱼), Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons (西游：降魔篇), One Second Champion (一秒拳王), and Weeds on Fire (点五步).
Looks like Disney+ is primed to become a highly attractive streaming platform for fans of movies and shows both local and international in Hong Kong. The service will have a monthly fee of HK$73, each account can have up to seven users, and streaming on up to four devices at once will be supported.
