Disney to charge less than Netflix for its streaming service

Disney to charge less than Netflix for its streaming service

Furthermore, the studio will produce "four or five" movies a year, exclusively for the Disney service. This would include shows like Gotham, Lucifer, The Orville, Brookline Nine-Nine, The Exorcist and more. That's the television platform.

ESPN, Disney's cash-cow, has been trying to combat subscriber declines by joining smaller bundles of cable channels and developing a streaming service it will sell directly to consumers.

Iger said the new subscription service will debut in the second half of 2019 and be priced "substantially below" Netflix Inc.

Marvel is now producing multiple shows for a string of networks and streaming platforms: Agents of SHIELD for ABC, Runaways for Hulu, Legion for FX, The Gifted for Fox and Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders and The Punisher for Netflix.

Netflix investors are taking notice of the Disney threat.

Shares of Disney are up 14.26% over the past year.

The rumored show won't be the first Star Wars series to arrive on television, of course, but will be the first live action version of the franchise to hit the small screen.

One reason why the service will be cheaper is because it won't have as much content as Netflix, at least in the beginning.

For some, this might indicate a future where Netflix's preeminence in the streaming video space is overtaken by Disney, which is also set to pull some its programming from Netflix when its own service launches.

Iger has also hinted that the lower price would be a promotional strategy, and as the service gains ground, it would increase the pricing. Details are super-light, but a creative universe with possibilities that run the gamut from Spider-Man to The Avengers to Guardians of the Galaxy to Thor... well, you get the idea. "That is in part reflective of the fact that we'll have substantially less volume".

The media giant reported weaker-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter earnings Thursday.

Not long ago, Disney took the world by surprise with a slew of announcement.
