Wow wonder why it's so late. Not sure why they would delay the EU market tbh.

I'll have already found alternative means to watch The Mandalorian by that point. Oh well, their loss.

Yeah usually a staggered roll-out is somewhat sensible especially if you're expecting high but somewhat unpredictable demand. But essentially region-locking content for 6 months in this day and age? ThePirateBay is going to have a field day.

It must be due to technical reasons, like not confirming a deals with regional data centres in time.

So I have to ask,
Who is going to subscribe to this and Netflix and Sky and Amazon prime and the new BBC service and the Warner Bro's version and Apple TV and YouTube premium?
Well everyone if they want to watch everything they have been able to previously. That must be what these guys are thinking. Who wins with segmenting the market like this? The pirate bay.

Yeah that's what I thought, maybe for some of the content on the Disney+ store and they felt it made more sense to push the launch back, but the exclusive content would surely be explicitly exempt from that scenario.

I would have thought it might be down to existing contracts with other companies like Netflix having purchased the rights to stream Disney content within the EU, and Disney+ is set to launch after these contracts expire.
