While streaming services are exciting, the problem is that in terms of availability, they can be limited. Take for example with Hulu, the service is still not available in many parts of the world, leaving some users frustrated and turning to piracy in order to watch certain shows. However, Disney seems to be working to prevent that from happening.
Disney Plus will be officially going live on the 12th of November, where it will be initially available in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand, but when will it hit other markets? The good news is that if you live in the UK and Europe, you will only need to wait a few more months.
Disney has announced that come 31st of March, 2020, Disney Plus will be available in the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Ireland. However, Disney does caution that in terms of the availability of titles, this will vary from region to region, so don’t expect to have the same catalog as those in the US.

It is unclear when Disney Plus is expected to eventually be made available worldwide, but until Disney makes an announcement, the rest of the world will just have to wait.
