As the inevitable battle for planet earth between Disney, Google, and Amazon continues, the next phase of Disney’s plan has already been put in motion. Expected to launch late next year, the Disney streaming service will change the world of media streaming forever.
Speaking at the Code Media Conference, Kevin Mayer, the Chief Strategy Officer for Disney says the House of Mouse’s service is not intended to put Netflix out of business:
“I personally like Netflix. They’ve got a great product. They do exceedingly well in the marketplace. What we’re doing, we’re not trying to hurt or kill Netflix.”
While Netflix’s original content alone is worth the subscription price, I would say that over half of their acquired content is simply just fodder, at least for me, excluding some of the bigger shows the offer. Take Disney on the other hand who will draw a large number subscribers from Star Wars and Marvel alone, and don’t forget about their animated classics, should they decide to put them on there (I’m guessing there will be some sort of revolving platform with the non-Pixar animated films). I don’t think Disney’s service will kill Netflix either, but they sure have acquired some great properties over the years, and the service will surely make its presence known.
