Disney+ Has More In Australia Than The US .
Disney+ has landed on Australian shores and it's jam-packed with classics and soon-to-be favourites. Shocking everyone, however, Australians seem to be getting a lot more content than our U.S. counterparts. Here's what's available.I began this article looking for what Australians would be missing out on at Disney+'s launch but it was quickly flipped on its side. Turns out, Australians have way more available at launch than our friends across the Pacific. It seems that content deals between streaming services, like Netflix and Amazon, in the U.S. have meant Disney has had to suck it up and leave a number of titles available outside of its new home.
