Disney's standalone streaming service: What's the story so far?

11 November 2017

When asked how all of Disney's proposed streaming programming-which could venture beyond the wholesome G-rated fare families expect, especially if it dives into the edgier end of Marvel-would work with the overall Disney brand, Iger likened it to its theme parks.

"It's becoming an internet TV world", Hastings said, "which presents both challenges and opportunities for Netflix as we strive to earn screen time".

What realm of Marvel will this future show possibly explore?

Netflix's base price in the United States is now US$7.99. "That is in part reflective of the fact that we'll have substantially less volume". Some are saying that The Punisher will be the last series in the collaboration between Marvel TV and Netflix.

I would'nt be surprised if Disney took advantage of the D23 Expo to launch the service as Bob specifically called out D23 Members as potential users of the service. That service will be called ESPN Plus, he said Thursday. Iger's newsy bombshells late Thursday sent slumping shares reversing higher, despite the media conglomerate's unexpected profit and revenue declines that initially hit the stock. Details are super-light, but a creative universe with possibilities that run the gamut from Spider-Man to The Avengers to Guardians of the Galaxy to Thor... well, you get the idea.

In one instance Anello claims that he entered her room while she was wearing see-through negligee that was open. But it appears that if a settlement can't be reached Anello is prepared to move forward with the allegations.

A live action Star Wars television series will be coming to Disney's new streaming services in 2019. With an ambitious plan to bring loads of new content to the small screen - including a newly announced live-action Star Wars TV series - the Mouse House is pushing hard into the TV streaming space.

Indeed, the new movies will be completely separate from the so-called Skywalker saga on which the current films are based.

According to The Wall Street Journal, any new Marvel shows will probably be exclusive to Disney's streaming service, which is likely to debut in 2019. It does, however, mean that Disney will be increasing the price as the catalogue grows.

It was previously reported that Disney would launch its streaming service with "500 films from the Disney addition to around 7,000 episodes of Disney TV".

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