We have some important and important new details regarding Disney and its upcoming streaming service. The company's new DTC (Direct To Consumer) service is expected to be a direct competitor to Netflix and give Disney a serious footing in the streaming game, which is truly the only place lacking in Hollywood due to its dominance. Now we have the question of what the service will be called, about what it will cost and what it has to expect in terms of content.
First of all, the question many people have asked is that the service is supposed to be called Disney Play. Many have jokingly referred to it as "Disneyflix," but thanks to Disney boss Bob Iger, we now know that this is their official name. For now. It is not expected that the service will start until the end of 201
These new details are part of a comprehensive report detailing how other massive media companies, such as Disney, are trying to comply with Netflix. They are by far the world's largest streaming service with around 130 million subscribers worldwide and have completely changed the game. Streaming is the future, and everyone else will be trying to build direct relationships with their customer base through streaming, so they do not get lost in the flow. Thus, Bob Iger calls Disney Play "the company's biggest priority in the calendar [year] 2019". That says something.
While he did not clarify, Disney's CEO also said that Disney Play will launch a "suite" of subscriber services. In terms of content, you should not expect Disney to start new programs and films like Netflix every week. They have many exclusive products for development service, such as the live action Star Wars TV Show, the live action Lady and the Tramp remake, possible reboots such as [19459005"HoneyIShrunktheKids and The Parent Trap not to mention the assets they want to include in the Fox library after the merger. Nevertheless, Bob Iger knows that his service in terms of quantity will not offer that much to offer subscribers. However, they play the quality game.
"We have the luxury of programming this product with programs from these brands or being derived from these brands, which of course generates a demand and gives us the ability to be not necessarily in the volume of the game, but in the quality game be. "
The main advantage that Netflix has are attractive features. Not only do you have years of content that people want to see, but also new shows and films based on brands like Marvel and Star Wars . While existing Marvel Netflix shows will stay in place, future projects will be for Disney Play. Not only that, but Disney is completing its lucrative deal with Netflix, which means that all future Disney titles will no longer debut on Netflix and they will lose all the Disney movies and TV shows they currently have. That's a big blow for her.
A big problem for Disney is that the Star Wars films are currently included in a cable store on TNT and TBS. This deal will run until 2024, which means that most films in the franchise will not come to Disney Play unless they can work something out. For now it does not look as if that will be the case.
Last, but not least, costs. Bob Iger has not thrown out an exact figure, but since they will offer less content, it has been clarified that the Disney Streaming service will cost less than Netflix, which costs between $ 8 and $ 14 a month, depending on the subscription. It will cost a lot to make this a profitable project for Disney, but if you shop cheaply, it can help make it more attractive. This news comes courtesy of Variety.
