South African mobile operator MTN has launched a new mobile plan in partnership with Disney+.

MTN will offer a bundle to its customers who sign up for a Disney+ Mobile Plan at the cost of R49.

If customers pay for the bundle with their airtime or add it to their monthly bill, they will get 500MB of free streaming data per month, the operator said.

MTN said customers will also be able to get a Disney+ mobile entertainment pass that will include 2GB of streaming data for R59 per month.

The Disney+ Mobile Plan with MTN offers the same access to Disney+’s catalogue of content from the streamer’s brands of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, as well as general entertainment from Star.

“Using mobile phones and tablets, subscribers will have access to features such as SD data-saver streaming, as well as including the feature for parents to set kids profiles to access age-appropriate content,” it said.

Jason Probert, MTN SA General Manager for Digital Services said that the partnership opens MTN and Disney+ for further offers, alluding to more products for the future.

“We look forward to pursuing many additional features for our customers,” he said. MTN said that plans are in development for further Disney+ offers for MTN customers.

Disney said the partnership gives South Africans another way to watch Disney+ content in the country.

Customers will have access to newly released films and series, including Marvel Studios’ “Secret Invasion” starring Samuel L. Jackson, “Avatar: The Way of Water”, the Disney+ Original anthology series “Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire”, as well as the original comedy series “Only Murders in the Building”, with “The Kardashians”, “The Simpsons” and back seasons of “Grey’s Anatomy”, “9-1-1” and “Black-ish”.
