Disney+ launched in Hong Kong yesterday, November 16, which means that fans of Disney classics like The Lion King, Pixar hits such as the Toy Story franchise, and the Star Wars series and its spin-offs can now watch all this content and more on demand for a HK$73 monthly subscription or HK$738 annual subscription.

Up to seven different profiles can be set up per account using the GroupWatch feature, but only four screens can stream simultaneously. Other features include 4K UHD viewing and Dolby Atmos sound on compatible devices.

Some of the other content available in Hong Kong includes Marvel blockbusters like Black Widow, Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War, and series such as WandaVision and Loki. Subscribers can access National Geographic shows and Disney+ Originals, as well as an array of Asian content in the form of Train to Busan, Outrun by Running Man and Stephen Chow’s Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. Members can also watch content by Disney subsidiaries FX and 20th Century on Star, a free tier within Disney+.

Disney’s answer to demand for over-the-top streaming services launched in November 2019 in the US, Canada and the Netherlands, and is now available in more than 60 countries and territories across the world. Their current expansion is part of an Asia-specific rollout that began in February 2021 with Singapore and, most recently, South Korea and Taiwan on November 12.
