Stan's partnership with Disney isn't over yet, with the Nine owned streaming service securing the rights to content from Disney-owned companies Fox and ABC.

The deal will see shows including How I Met Your Mother, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sons of Anarchy, Grey’s Anatomy and Family Guy all added to the platform.

Disney had previously been tied up with Stan in a one-year deal for all of its major content including Marvel, LucasArts and Pixar.

However, the relationship between the two came to an end this month, when Disney launched its long-awaited streaming platform Disney+.

The streaming platform has now made all of its content available in one place, as well as launching its own original content, such as Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian.

Following its acquisition of 20th Century Fox, long-running animated sitcom The Simpsons, is also availabe on the platform.

Subscription prices for the service are $8.99 a month (or $89.99 per year) and $NZ9.99 per month (or $99.99 per year).

Disney has also been making moves to bolster its team locally, appointing Sally O'Donoghue as its head of streaming for Australia, while adding roles for multiple divisions including sales, events, partnerships and marketing.
