When The Walt Disney Company launches its Disney+ video streaming service in South Africa in winter 2022, the Mouse House will have made a thorough price point sensitivity calculation for the market. However, it's not yet known what exactly the price for Disney+ will be.

Last week South Africans finally got a local launch date for the country, a year and a half after Disney+ launched in the US and in other markets around the world.
