Newsline: Disney to pull its Netflix content

WALT Disney Co will stop providing new movies to Netflix Inc starting in 2019 and launch its own streaming service as the world's biggest entertainment company tries to capture digital viewers who are dumping traditional television.

While this partnership with ESPN is a strong move on Disney's part, one analyst, Brian Weiser, pointed out that, "Disney will have to be careful that it doesn't transfer too much sports programming from its TV channels to the app. Getting the balance wrong could upset cable companies and weigh on the price they pay Disney for ESPN". They also contribute a significant number of Disney's output.

Disney, which also owns the ABC television network, said its consumer channel would include its Disney and Pixar movies and content from the Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD. Although it was revealed by the company's CEO Bob Iger that Disney maintained a good relationship with Netflix, it was their decision to create an option to take all its contents from the platform.
