A range of Disney movies and TV series will be available for mobile users in Korea to download from March following a deal with SK Telecom.

Disney-ABC International Television (Asia Pacific) has agreed to stream its content, including full-length features, to SK Mobile subscribers. It is the first such deal Disney has agreed outside the US and Canada.

Rob Gilby, Disney-ABC’s managing director in the region, said: “Korea’s highly advanced digital society and mobile phone culture makes it a priority market for us to launch this first-time service internationally, and SK Telecom’s pioneering development across multiple digital platforms makes it a natural partner.”
