Disney and Foxtel Group – an Australian Pay TV service provider – have reached an agreement which will see Disney+ integrated into 1.7 million Foxtel STBs over the coming weeks. Foxtel customers with a current Disney+ subscription will be able to access the service through iQ3, iQ4 or iQ5 STBs.

The streaming service offers titles from across Disney’s brands, including Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and general entertainment brand Star (with content from 20th Century Studios, Disney Television Studios, FX, Searchlight Pictures, and more.)

Subscribed Foxtel customers will have access to a range of drama, action and reality content, including shows such as Only Murder in the Building, The Kardashians, FX’s The Old Man and Grey’s Anatomy. Other popular titles on Disney+ include Encanto, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Lightyear, and Marvel Studio’s Moon Knight.

Amanda Laing, Chief Content and Commercial Officer, Foxtel Group, said: “We’re committed to delivering the ultimate destination for entertainment and streaming, all in one place and so we’re thrilled to be adding to our apps with Disney+, the home of much-loved and globally recognised entertainment brands.

“Through the Disney+ app integration, Foxtel subscribers can access their Disney+ subscription to the deep and rich catalogue of Disney+ content spanning the fantastical worlds of popular family movies and TV shows, to hugely popular, addictive, and gripping dramas, comedies, reality and more for adult audiences.”

Kylie Watson-Wheeler, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of The Walt Disney Company in Australia and New Zealand, commented: “We’re excited to add Disney+ on Foxtel iQ devices which makes a Disney+ subscription seamlessly accessible on this platform.

“This innovation means Foxtel customers can conveniently expand their viewing experience to enjoy our world’s-best entertainment and content for all ages, with an ever-growing catalogue, exciting new releases, exclusive original content, and more on Disney+.”
