No more Marvel TV shows for Netflix

As most of you are aware, Netflix now costs anywhere between $7.99 and $13.99 a month to stream an array of studio content including the service's original series and films. Thankfully, according to CEO Bob Iger, fans won't need to break the bank to take part in the viewing experience. It will be "substantially below" what Netflix costs, Iger said, in part because it will have a more limited library.

Disney plans to launch its standalone streaming service in 2019.

The zoo later said they let one of April's caretakers choose the name of the baby giraffe, which means "hope" in Swahili. The owner of upper state New York's Animal Adventure Park dropped a major hint while being interviewed on live TV .

It's been confirmed that future Marvel shows will be exclusive to Disney's service.

On the film studio side, revenue dropped 21% to US$1.4 billion while segment operating income fell US$163 million to US$218 million. "Our goal here is be a viable player in the direct-to-consumer space, space that we all know is a very, very compelling space to be in".

In his tweets, he also referred to criticism that stars of the show receive online. The teenager continued, "Y'all know who you are".

Device support is unclear, though Disney has referred to the upcoming service as an "app" on several occasions, suggesting it could be streamed to smartphones, tablets, computers, TVs, and other internet-connected devices capable of running applications. Ben Fritz of the Wall Street Journal notes that Disney would also develop shows based on Disney properties such as, Monsters Inc., Marvel, and High School Musical. This week's seen a flurry of Disney-related news, with a new trilogy of Star Wars films from Rian Johnson being announced just after it broke that new live-action Star Wars and Marvel shows are in the works.

One App: Disney will feature one app and this strategy is already in play as Disney recently combined their channels into the Disney Now app. Disney expects to have an app that will feature specific content for cable subscribers with alternate content for subscribers to the service. Its most popular plan, which allows high-definition video streaming on two devices at a time, costs $10.99 a month. The shares are down 1.5 percent this year after a flat 2016, the worst back-to-back years since 2007-2008. This seemingly means that the service will not feature the hard-edged Marvel shows that are now airing on Netflix or many Touchstone and Hollywood Pictures films. He said ABC Productions could end up creating content for the Disney-branded service.

Taylor Swift Makes Her Own Cat Memes Counting Down 'Reputation' Release
Swift removed her music from streaming platforms shortly before the release of "1989", decrying the services' royalty payments. According to Hilton, he's a victim of Swift's wrath, which he's never felt before.

"The excitement will only intensify as we get closer to the release date", Iger said.
