Disney Is Breaking Up with Netflix to Start Its Own Streaming Service and We Feel Like Crying
Binge-watch as many Disney movies on Netflix as you possibly can because the Mouse is pulling all of its content from the streaming power-house and launching its own set of on-demand content services.
Yesterday, Disney announced its removing its entire library from Netflix by the end of 2018 and are launching two new streaming services over the next two years: one for Disney properties and one for ESPN (which is owned by Disney). The forthcoming Disney-branded service will be available exclusively in the United States and allow subscribers to stream Disney and Pixar films, shows and short-form programming at their leisure starting in 2019. The House of Mouse will also throw in movies that will be released in 2019, including Toy Story 4, Frozen 2 and the Lion King live-action reboot.
Disney's ESPN-branded sports streaming service will be available in early 2018, much to the delight of sports lovers everywhere.
Between Netflix, Disney and ESPN, everyone in the household should be covered. Except the dog...it's always the dog.
