StarHub viewers will be some of the lucky few worldwide to enjoy all six Disney content brands following an exclusive deal between the Singapore telco and The Walt Disney Company. Under the agreement, StarHub will become the official distributor of Disney+ in Singapore with its television, mobile and broadband offerings. 

“We are excited to be the first and only fully-integrated quad-play service provider to raise the entertainment bar for our customers with Disney+, home to some of the most recognisable cultural brands in the world today,” says Johan Buse, who is the chief of StarHub’s consumer business group.

Disney+ - home to 500 films and 15,000 episodes of content including The Mandalorian and Marvel’s WandaVision - will be the eighth streaming platform fully integrated on StarHub TV+. Viewers can access Disney+ via television or on-the-go via Starhub 5G, taking advantage of “Singapore’s widest 5G network with over 70% population coverage”.
