Disney is pulling their movies off with talks of their own Streaming service.

So add another to the list.

you know waht you call 50 different streaming services offering their own original content sprinkled with reruns?

Cable. Those are called channels.



Right now its just movies. But IF Disney really wanted to set up a powerhouse of a streaming service... it very well could just based on their enormous library and the fact they own so much.

Imagine a streaming service that has access to classic Disney movies, classic cartoons, current Disney Junior cartoons, all those "i carly" disney shows, access to all of Marvel's library including old cartoons and current to go along with all of the MCU, all of Star Wars, Pixar, ect, ect

It would be a streaming powerhouse IF they wanted to.

And that is't even getting into what they own with ABC and ESPN.\


But, just in genreal, if they pull their kids cartoons off Netflix then I wll actually cancel my netflix description. My kids watch it more than me other than the MCU netflix series. Their movie library is kinda sh*t now and I am not a huge TV watcher so i don't really watch any of the original content.

Disney agreeing to have their material broadcast through NetFlix was merely a 'proving ground' to examine the intricacies of a streaming technology operation as a future viable entertainment platform. One can safely assume that the results of their research was positive giving the company an opportunity to pull out of the agreement and pursue the venture themselves.

The decision Mr. Igor made was more about controlling what, where and how to utilize this form of digital entertainment than anything, thus, why buying 33% of BAM Tech was necessary to accomplish this feat.

I stumbled into buying a year's subscription to Amazon Prime this month (I had bought a college book 3 months ago with their "free tryout" and had forgotten about it, dang it)-- i'd cancel but it's too late, lol..

So what's the deal with what Amazon has access to?  are their movies worth it?

The thing is, I may be willing to pay for 1 or 2 streaming services a month.

I'm not going to pay for 3 or more of them per month.

So if everybody takes their original content and goes on their own you get rid of what made streaming
so appealing to everybody in the first place: the ability to get lots of different content in one place.

I don't have kids, so Disney's original movie catalogue isn't worth paying for. Nor is HBO Go if the only thing I'm
gonna watch on it is Game Of Thrones.

The streaming companies are going revitalize large scale video piracy all over again behind this.
