Disney+ will have an Xbox One app at launch, but not a Fire TV app

Today, Disney announced that its Disney+ streaming service will launch in Canada and The Netherlands on November 12, the same date that it will launch in the United States, and it also announced that Australia and New Zealand availability will be on November 19. Pricing will be $8.99 CAD ($89.99 CAD per year) in Canada, €6.99 per month (€69.99 per year) in The Netherlands, $8.99 AUD per month ($89.99 AUD per year) in Australia, and $9.99 NZD per month ($99.99 NZD per year) in New Zealand.

The firm also noted which platforms the new streaming service will be available on, and it includes most major platforms. On the Google side of things, it will support Android, Android TV, and Chromecast. If you use Apple products, it will support iOS and Apple TV. Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be supported on the side of gaming consoles, and if you don't pick a side either way, it's available on Roku devices.

The most notable thing missing from the list is Amazon's Fire TV products. There's no official reason as to why they're missing. Perhaps the app is coming later on, or perhaps it's just bundled into the Android category. After all, Fire OS is an Android platform, and if Disney decides not to make an app for it, you could still side-load the Android app that is available.

The other obvious thing that's missing from the list is any particular brand of smart TVs. It would seem that for now, you'll need an external device to run the service.
