    Pretty smart from their point of view.

    It will be interesting when the subscription starts. If it starts once your vacation is over, you'll have kids watching it non stop for a year and where else are they going to want to go on holiday?

    Disney posted an article on Facebook about Disneyland's newly reopened Rivers of America attractions and you're hard pressed to find a single comment relating to the article. Disney FB moms are furious and deeply offended by Disney's new streaming service announcement. I imagine DisTwitter is the same?

    Personally, I'm surprised this didn't happened years ago. I'm really not too upset by Disney leaving Netflix as their selections were pretty slim anyway. I never banked on them putting up any good, non-sequel movies, so I could be pleasantly surprised when they did.

    I actually thought this happened a while ago.

    The Disney/Netflix deal was always super weird. They signed a deal in 2012 to start streaming Disney movies in 2016. That's weird. I can't think of another streaming deal that had that long of a lead time.

    Since that deal was signed, Disney became the biggest studio in Hollywood by far. This was absolutely inevitable. I always knew the deal would never get renewed.

    You know what will destroy steaming? Fragmentation. Netflix is successful because of the smorgasbord it offers. If everyone has their own streaming it just becomes cable again.

    I agree. Its like the whole cable cutting thing is backfiring now. There are so many "subscription" services that to have everything is starting to cost more than cable.

    I'm on Netflix and that's it. Used to be on Hulu and Amazon Prime but everything is getting too ridiculous and expensive. I would not subscribe to Disney's network. I have the movies of theirs I want, and I could care less about Star Wars or any of their tv shows.

    If this kind of crap keeps up, I may dump tv altogether.

    I got a survey a while back in The Netherlands. They asked if I would like it, how much it should cost and if Marvel and Star Wars should be included. I think the whole thing is a bad idea. Netflix in Europe will continue to offer Disney movies. I guess the response was negative and that is a good thing.

    Not completely on topic but has anyone seen Ducktails and do you also hate it as much as I do? Why does the Disney company goes for the artsy fartsy graphical style they used for the new mickey shorts?!
    I only suffered 10 minutes through the first episode but I didn't like anything.

    Disney have backed off with comments about Marvel and Star Wars coming off of Netflix.

    They're in negotiations for Netflix to potentially keep them. It's not for sure yet though.

    It's probably not a bad move to have some titles on Netflix. Keep the first few MCU titles on Netflix, get the customer interested in it and then if they want to continue, the easiest way to keep watching is get Disney Life.

    Everyone keeps talking about the Marvel films, but are ignoring the most obvious and important part to Netflix - The Defenders. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and the currently in production The Punisher. The whole point of Netflix getting these characters was because it's the only venue to do more mature, darker Marvel characters like these. They're not Disney material at all and that's the point. They're also Netflix exclusive (although I think season one of Daredevil is on blu-ray and iTunes). Personally, Daredevil is one of the biggest reasons I subscribe to Netflix.
