    Disney+ unveils subscription prices in Thailand

    Pretty cheap really. It's Bt2500pa in the US.

    Marvel geeks, Star Wars cult followers and Disney princess enthusiasts can ready their wallets, as Disney has finally announced the price range for its Disney+ services.
    At a press conference held on Tuesday afternoon, Disney+ Hotstar unveiled subscription costs of THB799 (US$25.60) per year or THB99 (US$3.17) per month. One account can stream concurrently to two devices.
    Those who use AIS for their mobile phone provider are offered a promotional rate of THB35 (US$1.12) per month for the first 12 months. The offer is available only until June 27. More details are available online.

    Disney+ will reach Thai viewers June 30, according to Disney CEO Robert Chapek who last month.
    The brand, Disney+ Hotstar, is a partnership between Disney+ and AIS, Thailand’s top mobile and internet service provider. An online community on Facebook dubbed Disney+ Hotstar Thailand, launched to share information about the highly anticipated streaming channel, has so far garnered more than 87,000 members.
    The streaming service will offer more than 700 movies and 10,000 episodes of series from popular studios such as Disney, Pixar, Marvel, National Geographic and 20th Century Studios.

    Prior to its launch in Thailand, Disney+ so far has only been available in three Southeast Asian countries: Indonesia, Singapore and
    Malaysia.

    Registarted on the AIS app yesterday.

    3 clicks of a button and an SMS later was all that was needed.

    Can't go wrong for 35 baht a month.

    ...Even thinking about dumping Netflix.

    I'm sure they have geofencing, but I wonder if I can do that from here?

    Does it send you a username and password?

    Yep. That is good. Quite a lot of stuff for adults on it too.

    I wonder if you get the same content or its geo restricted like Netflix

    Replying to Harry...

    I'm postpaid and pay my monthly bill through the myAIS app.

    As I've already signed into the app (username/password), it has all my details already.

    Open app, click Disney link, hit subscribe, hit confirm and then it sends you an SMS saying that you have subscribed to the Disney+Hotstar package for 35 baht/month for 12 months.

    They will send another SMS on the 30th to activate.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    Ta Bogon.

    I subscribed via the MyAIS app (throwaway money innit).

    If I can get it to work in the sandpit that would be a real bonus.

    I’m not in Thailand. I discovered tonight that a zombie movie trailer was not appropriate for my daughter but they have a kids safe button which I engaged.

    the wife and I watched some episodes of Empire, which we liked.

    Seems like a pretty good price but I'll just be adding it to the list of other subs I have and don't really use via paralysis by analysis.

    Well, supposed to be able to watch from today. Fucked if I can figure it out.

    Supposed to download the app from the Google play store. Just there does not seem to be one.

    Usual f*cking Thai efficiency.

    30th June.

    Today is the 29th.

    I got an SMS today saying:

    "Your subscription to a monthly package at a special price of THB 35/month valid for 12 months with an extra month on us (on the 2nd month) has been activated. Download Disney+ Hotstar app and start streaming from 20 June 2021 at m.ais.co.th/dh"

    That's the first three things that go with age.

    1. Your memory
    2. Your looks
    3. Your memory



    Anyway, I assume I'll have to try installing a dodgy version of the app and use a VPN to see if it works, or write off the princely sum of Bt420.

    1. Download the Disney+ Hotstar application from your Apple App store or Google Play Store

    4. Fill in your registration details
    5. Click on ‘Create Account’
    6. You will be redirected to the home page
    7. Start watching!

    On your desktop browser

    1. Visit www.disneyplushotstar.com
    2. Please agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy by clicking ‘Continue’
    3. Enter your AIS mobile number to create an account > Click ‘Continue’
    4. You will receive a 4-digit code through SMS; Enter the 4-digit code onto the app > Click ‘Continue’
    5. Fill in your registration details
    6. Click on ‘Create Account’

    ^its the fucking lockdown. Time and days just blur. Plus, my memory is going.

    The boy thinks they might release the app tomorrow, as it is not on either google play store or the apple thing.

    We shall see. Like you say, its less than 500 baht, but would like to see the Marvel series.
