And again, as per my previous comment, besides the delivery method, this is literally what consumers have been asking for, channels (streaming services = channels) a la carte. You're not forced to pay for services you don't want or don't use and you can choose which services you buy.

Sure but are you prepared to pay 10bucks (or more) per streaming service (or channel)?

Actually yes. Let us use this example.

CBS catalogue, Live news + Showtime = $10

To get that same thing from rogers you will have to pay for their "skinny" service. That is $25 + the super channel. I think its $10.

The CBS one will have all their shows with no ads. You want ads its $6. No need to DVR. Shows available online might not be available on CBS cable because there is only 1 stream going at a time.

$35 VS $6.

Disney should combine all the Disney content with all the ESPN content plus ABC shows under 1 new streaming service. It will be a must-have and a better competitor to Netflix.

I have no need to pay for all of them, I could be tempted to get what I want, I'd say if I could get it I'd pay for Netflix, HBO and maybe showtime.

That's called a bundle, and as amazing as it is there are lots of people who just do not care about sports or even basic cable. I could be tempted by Disney (but probably not) but I definitly 100% would not be interested in the other 2, which is why bundles suck.

What else can Netflix say? if they say "we are worried we may lose 10-20% of our customers to Disney" their stock would take a big hit.

Disney intends to launch a separate streaming service for ESPN in 2018.

from https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/09/disney- ... -2017.html

The Walt Disney Company share gained after the company said it plans to price its streaming service "substantially below" that of Netflix.

The company said, however, that its service will be cheaper because it will initially have a smaller library than what the streaming giant offers. Disney said its goal is to attract as many subscribers as possible when it launches the service.

The price tag would be adjusted over time to mirror the volume of content that is added to the service, Disney said during its earnings call.

As part of a strategic shift, Disney will no longer stream its movies on Netflix starting in 2019 and instead offer them on a new streaming service of its own. The company also intends to launch a separate streaming service for ESPN in 2018.

It would be a big hit it Netflix lost the Marvel shows. It's the majority of original content that I subscribe for. If they lost it, I'd probably go back to only subbing in months there was something I wanted to watch.

Just in time for them to bulk up library and it'll be end of their licensing deal with Netflix and Disney has ESPN and actual tv network to complement

Netflix is going to be in trouble and they know it which is why they're throwing everything at the wall and hoping some stick.

Disney's $52.4 billion deal to buy a large part of 21st Century Fox is shaking up the entertainment landscape. Devo Brown with how the move could affect comic book movie franchises, and help the company compete with streaming giant Netflix.
