Fubon’s Taiwan Mobile Announces Disney+ Partnership
On November 12, the popular streaming service Disney+ has officially entered the Taiwan market.
Earlier that week, Disney also announced that they signed an exclusive 1.5-year distribution deal with Taiwan Mobile, which is a subsidiary of Fubon Financial.
“Taiwan Mobile strives to provide customers with the best application of technology and media services, so as to open the possibility for each customer and enrich their everyday lives,” Taiwan Mobile president Jamie Lin told the Taipei Times.
Incoming Disney, Marvel, Star Wars Theme Nights and Merchandise?
With the Fubon Group secured the distribution deal with Disney+ in Taiwan, perhaps CPBL fans can expect to see more Disney, Marvel and Star Wars licensed theme nights and merchandise in the 2022 CPBL season?
The Fubon Guardians hosted a Star Wars night back in 2018, but despite having a bunch of licensed decorations and characters at the games, the team did not make a Star Wars-themed uniform.
Instead, the Guardians did a “Night Starry Sky” uniform with a font resembling the Star Wars font. Maybe this will no longer be the case with this new partnership with Disney?
