Disney Pulling Films From Netflix, Starting Streaming Service

Disney announced yesterday that they will be making an attempt to start a streaming service for their own content at some point in 2019. Meaning all the current Disney films will be pulled from Netflix eventually. There was news just a few months ago that Disney had an agreement with Netflix that would allow all their recent releases to be held by the streaming giant but now it looks like they have gone back on the deal and will be starting their own platform.

I’m a fan of Disney’s projects but I am able to see when they fuck everyone around. I was pissed when they re-released The Force Awakens with more deleted scenes 6 months after the bluray release in order to capitalize on the double dippers and now they want to withdraw their extensive Netflix catalogue in order to receive all the profit. Chances are the Disney platform won’t have a great value and it’ll just be another monthly charge to add on top of stuff like Netflix, Hulu and Crave. Its getting to the point where you are paying the same price as a cable bill in order to stream all the content. Its no longer a the cost efficient way to watch TV anymore.

Considering Marvel and Lucasfilm are both under the same Disney umbrella I’m sure this will be effecting them as well. Of course when it comes to Star Wars I’m watching the film opening night and pre-ordering the Bluray once its available so I have no use for streaming Star Wars. It will likely only be The Force Awakens, Rogue One, Han Solo and The Last Jedi that will be available when the platform launches as Disney doesn’t have the rights to the rest of the saga.

I don’t know how long Disney will leave their content on Netflix. I would think that Netflix and Disney have an agreement on their properties and once the content comes up for renewal in X amount of time Disney will choose to take the film off the site. So you can probably enjoy Disney properties on Netflix for a little while.

What do you think of Disney starting their own streaming service? Are they going too far?

    I sucked my great grandma’s dick last night. I’m starting to think she might be a guy!

      Lying to your grandson for 30+ years about being a woman… that takes balls.

    Disney is run by a bunch of assholes.

    • It drives me crazy when companies start to milk their customers just because they can get away with it. Its not Disney is struggling right now. They don’t need to do this.

      • Mr. Perfect

        Disney invented miking their customers. The sad thing is that so many bend over and take it.

    • Assholes that know how to make good movies! Pure evil.

      • Mr. Perfect

        Meh, they just follow a formula. They should get Uilick to change things up a bit. I’d watch a movie by Uilick.

  • Mr. Perfect

    Oh, and I knew this was going to happen. (All the services with an aggregate cost equal to a cable bill). Once the chord cutters started gloating, I knew it was just a matter of time.

    I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to start their own streaming service.

      Could you be a sport and start a discussion about how cool people in Spain drink water like I do. Thanks bro, you’re the best! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/15f9e647c38226a26bc2598694c83b0188d9a3b56dcb255afb60c3f127e85501.gif

        So you mean how people in Spain drink water while being raped by Pinguins right?

      • Bulgingsnake

        Make it legendary!

        I have uploaded another post but this one you ask for will hopefully be uploaded tomorrow

        Take your time soldier

    • mikezippy

      I agree. For a studio as big as them you’d think they would have done it sooner.

  • I’m glad they are off Netflix. Now I won’t be as pissed after spending $20 on each movie I buy only to find them one of my many streaming services for “free.”

    • mikezippy

      In two more years they will be off Netflix. That’s still a lot of movies they will be getting.

  • mikezippy

    I don’t know if they are back stabbers. I’m assuming Netflixes agreement was for only a couple of years anyways. This was going to happen eventually. All big studios have to go the streaming route as theaters are slowly dying.

      That’s a damn shame I still enjoy going to the cinema

  • holybagpipes

    So in order to sell your soul to the devil, make a deal with disney.

    I’m not saying anything bad about Disney, but Mickey Mouse once drugged me and had his way with me for nearly two days straight. For a racist and anti-Semitic little rat, he packed the heat of a black Jew celebrating the end of tax season. Nicole left me after seeing my a-hole when I was released by Mickey. She knew none of her little toys would work on me the same way ever again.
