Disney To Remove All Content Off Netflix!

Disney Buys Majority Share of BAMTech, Will Launch New Streaming Services Disney To Remove All Content Off Netflix!
Elaine Woods | 12 August, 2017, 00:30

The online streaming wars are heating up after Disney announced that it would be taking a controlling stake in BAMTech to launching its own subscription service, whilst also announcing that it would be pulling all of its current content from Netflix from 2019.

The good news is that, since the Disney'Netflix deal just went into effect, the contract has a good two years left on it, which means most of the movies that come out between then and 2019 should also appear on Netflix eventually. The Motley Fool owns shares of and recommends Netflix and Walt Disney.

USA -based Netflix users will have access to Disney content, including movies released in 2018, through the end of 2019, Reuters reported. They won't be just streaming their TV shows and movies but also sports.

ESPN has faced the decline of TV subscribers in recent years and as a result, it was very much on the cards that it will have its own stand alone product but disclosure of a distribution agreement with its old associate Netflix has been hard on the investors.

The new Disney-branded service will become the exclusive home in the USA for subscription-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live action and animated movies from Disney and Pixar, beginning with the 2019 theatrical slate, which includes Toy Story 4, the sequel to Frozen, and The Lion King from Disney live-action, along with other highly anticipated movies. Disney now uses BAMTech to stream the content, which it now owns a third of but plans to buy a majority stake in. The feeling is that there may not be as much overlap between the Disney fans and Marvel or Star Wars fans to warrant such a move, he said.

"This lays the groundwork for the company to do a number of things", Iger said, speaking in a post-earnings interview with CNBC. But for now, enjoy your Disney movies on your Netflix while you can.

Nagasaki mayor: Threat of new nuclear attack growing
Abe didn't mention the treaty in his speech like three days earlier in Hiroshima, also the site of a nuclear bombing in 1945. Many died immediately while others succumbed to injuries or radiation-related illnesses weeks, months and years later.

The Disney announcement follows a similar announcement from CBS Corp. "Major League Baseball will continue to work with Disney and ESPN to further grow BAMTech as it breaks new ground in technologies for consumers to access entertainment and sports programming".

"Disney's announcement was light on details and did not sound terribly well hashed out".

Evercore analyst Vijay Jayant views the Disney-branded service as potentially disruptive as a subscription video-on-demand platform.

If Disney's direct-to-consumer platforms are successful, Greenfield anticipates that will accelerate ESPN's demise.

Disney has some experience with the direct-to-consumer model in Britain and could make more money in the long run from its own service, but the move could be "financially less advantageous" in the near term, said Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser. Subscribers will also have access to a vast collection of films and television content from our library.
