As part of Foxtel’s pivot from being the pay TV channel company to being the set top box of choice in your lounge room the company has today announced an agreement with the Walt Disney Company to integrate Disney+ into over 1.7 million Foxtel boxes.

Coming to IQ3, IQ4 and IQ5 Foxtel boxes the Disney+ app will be easily accessible, with Disney+ content also visible in suggested and featured carousels on the IQ home pages.

This means all the Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, Nat Geo and other Disney brand content is a few clicks away for Foxtel customers.

It’s not free though, it’s just a portal to Disney+ content and requires a Disney+ subscription.

The App offering on Foxtel has grown substantially since the first Netflix addition was announced, with now iView, SBS, 10Play and 9Now sitting alongside Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube and Vevo.

Foxtel Group Chief Content and Commercial Officer, Amanda Laing, said: “We’re committed to delivering the ultimate destination for entertainment and streaming, all in one place and so we’re thrilled to be adding to our apps with Disney+, the home of much-loved and globally recognised entertainment brands. Through the Disney+ app integration, Foxtel subscribers can access their Disney+ subscription to the deep and rich catalogue of Disney+ content spanning the fantastical worlds of popular family movies and TV shows, to hugely popular, addictive, and gripping dramas, comedies, reality and more for adult audiences.”

Kylie Watson-Wheeler, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of The Walt Disney Company in Australia and New Zealand, said: “We’re excited to add Disney+ on Foxtel iQ devices which makes a Disney+ subscription seamlessly accessible on this platform. This innovation means Foxtel customers can conveniently expand their viewing experience to enjoy our world’s-best entertainment and content for all ages, with an ever-growing catalogue, exciting new releases, exclusive original content, and more on Disney+.”

The Disney+ app will roll out over the coming weeks to subscribers on the Apps and Home screen.
