Disney has announced a new streaming entertainment service, which could see movies released in theatres and on the streaming service on the same day.
This is a strategic shift for Disney, and movies like Toy Story 4, Frozen 2 or the live-action version of The Lion King might be offered on opening night.
Beginning in 2019, people will be able to watch Disney and Pixar films only on the yet-to-launch Disney service in the so-called “pay 1 window,” the period in which rights are available to premium cable networks such as Starz and HBO and subscription streaming services such as Netflix.
We are so excited. Are you? Let us know by commenting below!
