    You may recall that last month Disney announced that it will be launching its own streaming service and ending its deal with Netflix. While people speculated as to what this would mean for the future of films made by studios owned by Disney but not released under the Disney Studios banner, it seems we now have a definitive answer.







    Variety reports that today Bob Iger, Disney CEO, announced that Lucasfilm and Marvel would also follow suit with the Disney branded films and no longer be streamed on Netflix beginning with 2019 releases. Upcoming releases before that date will still be made available on Netflix as they have been, but beginning in 2019 these releases, including all Star Wars films, will move to Disney’s new streaming service for their own films and television shows.





    Also The Wall Street Journal shared more details on Disney's future streaming service:





    As we are far out from the release of the service, no details have been given on price structure, available formats, or potential for original content, but we will update you as more news comes out.

    We all saw this coming as soon as Disney's VOD was announced, but it still sucks that it forces consumers to decide which service they'll use... few are gonna dole out for yet another on top of services they already they have.

    I feel sorry for Netflix users but a owner has to protect his property,

    While it isn't specifically Disney's fault, I feel like the number of streaming services is skyrocketing, while the amount of streaming content I actually consider worth watching is increasing much more slowly. It's like we have to subscribe to more and more plans just to get practically the same amount of content.

    Two Things
    1) Why was this announced seperate I thought it was obvious this coming so dont know why Disney waited on it.
    2) We have come full circle we are going to need to package are online streaming options at this rate...its getting comparable to cable.

    I don't condone pirating or think its right but with situations like this what can one do? I had Netflix for years $10 a month (just for the Marvel series), HBO
    ( just for GOT, thats all I had time to watch, GOT seasons cost $28, and I was spending $15 month for years to watch it, GOT began 2011), and I also had Hulu $14 a month for about a year. I got rid of them all and thanks to a small devise I stream them all for free saved me $60 a month, anyway Disney I love you guys cause I'm a huge Marvel fan and Star Wars fans but unfortunately I'll be watching your shows for free... its ridiculous! soon every studios will have their own streaming platform. I want to watch Star Trek Discovery and I have to pay for it through ABC's new streaming service, F' you this is getting out of hand. I'm iron born I'll watch it for free!

    I think I'm pushing optimum density on entertainment subscriptions now. I've got Sky for broadcast tv plus Netflix which has given me access to a good deal of the streaming content I was interested in. I kept Amazon Prime on from my original trail (which I used to binge watch The Man In The High Castle) pretty much solely for American Gods and Preacher.

    If Disney are going to pull content from Netflix and only run new movies/series on their dedicated service, I'll probably just resort to picking up the films and tv i'm really interested in when they hit home retail rather than add another subscription on the basis that I might watch more.

    We're going to reach a market saturation point and one/some of these services won't survive it long term... it's going to be interesting to see who comes out of it best.

    That's pretty much what I do I have Amazon prime for some stuff plus I do get free next day delivery on my orders, Netflix for other stuff I am should really watch the defenders plus Now Tv for GoT Tin Star which looks good & films.
    As for wh came ms out o top probably in the U.K. we can support all three but Iam not sure who Disney will package up with as I can't see a Disney only one even with all the content being a viable option unless it's really cheap ( which it won't be).
