Disney is going to leave Netflix and set up it’s own streaming service.
This opens up a whole new world for online streaming services. See what we did there?
Disney have just announced that they will end their distribution deal with Netflix and are going to set up a streaming service of their own. We have a while to wait though as this is not set to launch until 2019.
For now Disney movies are going to remain on the site until then. After the Disney streaming service is set up in 2019 Netflix will no longer host any Disney studio films. The next two Star Wars movies will still appear on Netflix but the final instalment will be shown on Disney.
A spokesperson for Netflix said: “We continue to do business with the Walt Disney Company on many fronts, including our ongoing deal with Marvel TV.”
Netflix are very prepared for this loss upping their game with original movies and some of the worlds most popular shows like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Black Mirror.
Disney have already planned to kick it off with the not released yet Toy Story 4 and the Frozen sequel.
We can’t wait to rewatch some of our favourite Disney classics on the Disney service. The service will also include the old TV shows. We are hoping the likes of That’s So Raven, Lizzie Mc Guire and Recess appear.
The news of a Disney streaming service for fans will be a huge welcome as it’s near impossible to rent Disney films or rewatch classic TV shows. The Disney-branded streaming service is set to kick off with films including Toy Story 4 and the sequel to Frozen.
