Disney's Stock Dips as Streaming Push Unnerves Some Investors

Walt Disney breaks few ties to set-up its own streaming service

Walt Disney breaks few ties to set-up its own streaming service

Still, as a mom, I'm not too thrilled with Disney's exodus from Netflix. Netflix may play a pivotal role in Marvel's entertainment, but, now that Disney has made the decision to create their own streaming services, we'll have to see what role Marvel has within these new services. Bob called to this step "A strategic shift in the way we distribute a content". He left the door open to continuing to license them to a partner like Netflix, but not necessarily Netflix, or for the company to start streaming services specifically for those properties.

Disney said in a statement it would offer a "multi-sport video streaming service" with its ESPN brand in early 2018 followed by "a new Disney-branded direct-to-consumer streaming service in 2019".

The Disney service will be the only place where USA viewers can watch new live action and animated movies from Disney and Pixar, including "Toy Story 4", the "Frozen" sequel and "The Lion King" live-action movie.

Charlie Kaufman worked with Ness, Lindsey Beer, Gary Spinelli, and John Lee Hancock to adapt the material for the screenplay. Davy is a young soldier who becomes jealous of the mentorship between his father and long-time rival Todd.

This latter deal is the one that's wrapping up in advance of the 2019 launch of Disney's streaming service. But this also raises the question - what does this mean for the Marvel shows that are now on Netflix?

According to a spokesperson, Marvel TV series like "Luke Cage", "Jessica Jones" and "The Punisher" will continue to live on Netflix - for now.

As a result of the acquisition, Disney will also be expanding its plans for its ESPN-branded direct-to-consumer service, giving fans access to 10,000 additional events annually.

Australia plans gay marriage vote
The strongest supporters of this survey have been the vocal opponents against marriage equality , they have stacked the deck. The ballot itself would not change the law, but a "yes" result could clear a path towards amending Australia's Marriage Act.

Disney may not be ending its deal to produce shows for Netflix, but the long-term future of the relationship seems a bit shaky. The Disney-branded film and TV offering would include original content developed by Walt Disney Studios.

Disney has had to adapt to a changing landscape as have other media companies, where the high cost of cable and satellite television coupled with the wide availability of streaming services has caused many US households to stop paying for cable services. Consumers, who are pay-TV subscribers, will also be able to access the ESPN television networks in the same app on an authenticated basis. While no one else now has the IP might of Disney, we are already seeing this stream-based channel approach adopted by Netflix's other big rival, Amazon.

In the short term, nothing changes, and in 2020 Netflix loses some movie content.

Ryan Murphy's 'Katrina: American Crime Story' to Reboot, Sarah Paulson to Star
In the meantime, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is now filming and will premiere on FX in January 2018. Originally, Annette Benning, Dennis Quad and Matthew Broderick had all been cast in a story that would feature George W.

We'll also tap into a vast library of movies and television shows that have been made by the company, the Channel and the Studio over the years, and we'll invest significantly in original movies and television shows exclusively for this subscription service. The big issue that could impact Netflix is whether it someday loses its partnership with Marvel TV.
