Disney to pull content from Netflix, launch its own streaming services

Bob Iger Disney CEO

Disney's current deal with Netflix expires in 2019 and covers titles scheduled for release through the end of next year, which means the popular streaming site will eventually show the likes of Avengers: Infinity War and the young Han Solo movie.

Even with the launch of ESPN's subscription sports service, Disney said OTT packages for individual sports will also be available for purchase, including MLB.TV, NHL.TV and MLS Live. For many sports fans, this app will become the premier digital destination for all their sports content.

The Disney-branded streaming service will be the "exclusive home in the United States for subscription-video-on-demand viewing", and will kick off with films including Toy Story 4 and the sequel to Frozen."Original movies, TV shows, [and] short-form content" will be added to the service, and it'll be filled out with older movies from Disney and Pixar's catalogue and shows from Disney's TV channel. However, Disney previously acquired a 33 percent stake, so now they are in complete control of this leading brand in direct-to-consumer streaming technology and marketing services. The company also announced plans to make a "significant investment" in exclusive movies and television series for the new service.

Additionally, Disney announced a direct-to-consumer video streaming service for both ESPN and Disney movies.

"By ending the Netflix movie deal, Disney will keep movies such as Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 for its own offering".

"Netflix, which lately has been focusing on its own exclusive programming, said it would continue to do business with Disney globally, including keeping its exclusive shows from Marvel television".

"We're very proud of the content distribution innovations driven by MLBAM and BAMTech over the past 15 years", Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred commented.

In addition to animated and live-action features, the service will include library content from Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD.

The BAMTech transaction is subject to regulatory approval, and upon closing, Iger will serve as chairman of the BAMTech board.

"This is an exciting validation of our team, its achievements and the customer-centric platform it's built", Paull said in a statement.

The BAMTech transaction is expected to be modestly dilutive to Disney's earnings per share for two years.
