This was made possible through a partnership with the MultiChoice Group.

“It has been quite a journey getting here, but it was so exciting to see South Africans downloading the app and taking their first stream. Our partners at DSTV have been hard at work, creating amazing and attractive offers for  DSTV subscribers to also access Disney+.

“We are really excited about the partnership and carrying it forward into the future.”
