Disney to Launch Streaming Service in 2019

August 9, 2017


The Walt Disney Company has announced that they will make their direct-to-consumer streaming service in 2019.

What does this mean? This new service will become the exclusive home in the US for subscriptoin-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live action and animated movies from Disney and Pixar, starting in 2019 with the theatrical slate, which includes Toy Story 4, the sequel to Frozen and The Lion King from Disney’s live-action, along with other highly anticipated movies. Disney will also make a significant investment in an annual slate of original movies, TV shows, short-form content and other Disney-branded exclusives for the service. In addition, the service will feature a vast collection of library content, including Disney and Pixar movies and Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD television programming.

What about those movies on Netflix? Disney will end its distribution agreement with Netflix for subscription streaming of new releases, beginning in the 2019 calendar year theatrical slate. Disney has yet to determine what will happen with Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios titles yet.
