Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia Official Launch Date Revealed
As we previously reported before, the launch of Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia is inevitable. Now, we have the official launch date, as well as subscription prices, for the new streaming service right here.
Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia Launch
Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia will officially be launching on 1st June 2021. It will be having over 800 films and 18,000 episodes of popular series from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, National Geographics, and more. Furthermore, there will also be a push for Malaysian-made content on the streaming platform as well.
From what we were informed, we get both seasons of The Mandalorian immediately at launch, all available episodes of WandaVision, and other notable shows like the complete series of How I Met Your Mother and The Simpsons. As for local content, we have the likes of Ejen Ali The Movie and J2: J Retribusi, along with new, original creations.
Apart from that, some of the films making their way to Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia now and in the future will skip theaters and jump straight into the streaming service. This appears to be one strategy the company is making to entice more users to subscribe to the new platform.
Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia will be launching on 1st June 2021, with a countdown to it starting today onwards. For those of you who are interested to subscribe, it will be available for just RM54.90 for 3 months, and can be viewed on Android and iOS via the app, media streaming services, compatible smart TVs, on Astro, and via web browsers.
Pokdepinion: I was pretty keen at first but given the glimpse of content the platform has, I’m pretty much sold at this point. One thing I want to see is whether it can match with rivals on having content streamed smoothly pretty much anywhere.
