New to the streaming platform, Star will house films and shows from Disney-owned studios —ABC, FX, Freeform, Searchlight and 20th Century Studios, which means you can look forward to binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother. In short, Disney+ will have more content than you’ll time to watch.

Among the extensive range of original content available on the new streaming platform, few are as highly coveted as Marvel Studios’ WandaVision. The American television miniseries—created by Jac Schaeffer based on the Marvel Comics characters—will see Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their role as Wanda Maximoff and Paul Vision respectively. The show follows the protagonists living idealised suburban lives until they realise that something’s not quite right.
Once Disney+ launches in Singapore, you will be able to catch up on the show and watch the episodes on the same day as the US.
