Yep, saw this yesterday and thought, my daughter is older now so it shouldn’t be a big deal for me. Then I forgot that they bought Star Wars and Marvel franchises, so it’ll likely lump under this… errrr

Yeah it sucks. Hopefully they can reach a nrw agreement. I am sure Netflix foes not want to loose access to all that content.

Honestly Netflix would love to have this content, but making their own content is what they’re driving for now. This is why Disney is gone and Netflix is buying whole comicbook companies like Millarwood. They now can make TV/movie versions of Kickass, Wanted and will have input on Kingsman property. Disney was probably getting views, but not new subscribers. Producing TV like Marvel and Millarwood will create new subscribers when people want to keep up to date with a new show.

Quite frankly, I am surprised it took Disney this long to want to launch it’s own service.

Well to be honest I probably won’t buy it cause these services are all overpriced. I’m not paying $6/month for a service like Nickelodeon streaming or whatever. I expect Disney will be in the same range and honestly I’ll just buy the bluray with digital and let the kids use that to watch the movies 20 times a day.

Yeah going down to this a la cart method for networks i think would cost an enduser more money overall. People are going to start being very choosey if all these company’s are goinf to want to start there own streaming services. Sure they will all start one one but in the end i think they will merge back together as the viewership wont be there.

My Journey on Cutting The Cord

The only good part is being able to start/cancel as needed, but then you forget you signed up for 10 of them and never cancel. I want an a la cart method handled by one service. Kind of like Amazon does for premium channels like Cinemax, Showtime, etc. I don’t want ten bills and ten apps. Give me one service with only the channels I want that month.

Completely agree with this. When I cut the cable cord, I’ll manage most content thru amazon so it’s easier.

The layout and signup could use a ton of work, but sure that has licensing issues. I’d love a checklist signup to pick multiple channels instead of one at a time. I think I may switch my HBO payment from Verizon to Amazon this week though.

Hbo is really the main component I’ll look for. I’m sure they’ll clean up the interface soon. I’ll put a suggestion in…

Does this include Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Defenders and the rest of the shows on Netflix?

I dont think so since they have bought rights from Marvel to develop these shows. I think this just pertains to stuff coming from Disney studios which could also include all the star wars and Marvel movies.

Edited to add: they are cutting their deal with Netflix as a distribution partner.

Didn’t they learn this lesson from Spider-Man, X-Men and Fantastic Four? They killed Fantastic Four comics over movie rights. They pretty much did the same for the X-Men comics, now they push the Inhumans.

you mean Marvel. the problem there is Fox. They got all that shit on the cheap while Marvel was bankrupt and they are not letting go at all.

No, Marvel killed off the Fantastic Four comic series since they don’t own the movie rights.

It didn’t help that all the Fantastic Four movies sucked. They’re also doing trying to kill off all X-Men comics but it’s a bit harder since they’re a more popular franchise.

Right they sold the movie rights to Fox when they were desperate for Money. They dont like what Fox did with it and cant get it back now. Well its not Marvels descion anymore really its Disney’s right?
