Disney Streaming Service to be Substantially Cheaper than Netflix

Disney Streaming Service to be Substantially Cheaper than Netflix

The Netflix deal allowed the MCU to tackle characters and stories they would never touch in their family-friendly films, and with all new Marvel shows being limited to Disney's streaming service and networks like ABC and Freeform, it's unlikely we'll see any more like them. Thankfully, according to CEO Bob Iger, fans won't need to break the bank to take part in the viewing experience. Iger also revealed that Disney's new service will be priced "substantially below" Netflix, at least when it initially launches.

The Walt Disney Co. has galactic plans for its Star Wars franchise, and those are coming with a big bill.

The Disney streaming platform is expected to launch in 2019.

"We continue to believe Disney's IP will drive significant value over the next five years despite the decelerating pace of growth at ESPN and recent investments into direct-to-consumer products", wrote Piper Jaffray analyst Stan Meyers, calling Disney the "best positioned" to leverage its content amid a fragmented media terrain.

The failure rate of security test was "in the ballpark" of 80 per cent, a source close to the investigation told ABC News . Chair of Homeland Security says they are "vulnerabilities I think every member at the briefing found disturbing".

And another announcement revealed that Disney will keep making new Star Wars movies way beyond that.

In addition, Mr. Iger for the first time provided details on the company's plans to produce Star Wars movies beyond a current trilogy set to end in 2019. For an idea of what this looks like, the Disney Now app features a "Disney Junior Only" mode.

Currently, Netflix plans start at $7.99 per month and jump to $10.99 for HD and $13.99 for Ultra HD plans.

The streaming service will be the exclusive home for subscription VOD viewing of live action and animated films from Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm and Marvel. 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.

According to SI.com legal expert Michael McCann, that means Elliott might have another ruling before the six-game suspension ends. Elliott can still appeal this decision, and the decision issued on Thursday says the appeal would be heard on an expedited basis.

Disney shares (DIS) were up more than 2.5% Friday to $105.38.

During on an investor's call in November 2017, Disney's CEO announced that The Last Jedi's director, Rian Johnson, will get his own Star Wars trilogy and that Disney is planning a live-action Star Wars television show for its upcoming streaming service. 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.

The launch of this new service is still two years away, so we're obviously still waiting for more information.
