Disney+ will be launched in South Africa on 18 May. But how does it compare to Netflix, Showmax, Prime Video, BritBox, Apple TV+ and others?
Walt Disney Co has confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in the South African streaming space: Disney+ will launch locally “this winter”.
Walt Disney Co’s popular and fast-growing streaming service, Disney+, is coming to South Africa. The platform will be available sometime in the middle of 2022.
eMedia Investments, the holding company of e.tv, eNCA and Openview, has plunged headfirst into streaming, launching eVOD, a video-on-demand service, in partnership with MTN South Africa.
Openview, the free-to-air satellite platform in the eMedia Holdings stable, has increased the number of activations of its set-top boxes by more than 18% in the past year.
