The Disney+ subscription service was launched in November 2019 as the company aimed to eke out a slice of the $50 billion digital streaming pie. It introduced its subscription service in Thailand in June last year, marking its entry into ASEAN.
“Cambodia should be launched with Thailand, Vietnam and Laos”, a source familiar with the matter told Khmer Times. “Sometimes they bundle the service with telcos and give it free too, like in the US with Verizon.”
In the US, Disney+ costs $8 per month, about $1 less than Netflix’s basic subscription package.
While Netflix has staked its success on the success of its content production, Disney’s key strength lies in its existing intellectual property.
Beyond the traditional characters, the firm also owns the rights to Marvel, National Geographic, the American Broadcasting Corporation, Entertainment and Sports Programming Network and 20th Century Fox.
As a result, Cambodian streamers will be able to watch classic Disney titles alongside Avengers movies, nature documentaries and episodes of The Simpson’s.
