Netflix reportedly in talks to keep streaming Marvel, Lucasfilm movies

Why Disney Is Prepared to Cut the Cord

Why Disney Is Prepared to Cut the Cord

He also added that Disney's service would be "complementary" to Netflix. SRS Capital Advisors Inc. raised its position in shares of Netflix by 3,361.9% in the first quarter.

The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) is launching two Netflix-style streaming services in a bid to address the pressure on its television business. It will include about 10,000 regional and national events in baseball, hockey, tennis, and college sports in its first year. Now that doesn't mean these discussions will lead to a deal, and I don't really think the chances are strong, but it's clear Netflix wants to maintain the streaming rights to Marvel and Lucasfilm new releases.

At Disney, "we see a measure of EPS pressure as the investments ramp up", he wrote in a note Wednesday.

While it sounds far from something settled, it could be that Disney's own streaming service is focused more on entertainment for families and children, while the more mature reach of the Star Wars and Marvel films end up being better suited for a distribution platform with a broader audience.

Now, he's focusing on Disney's biggest business, television, where cord cutters and cord shavers threaten two crucial sources of revenue - advertising and subscriber fees. Within the cable networks group, which includes ESPN, segment operating income was down 23% to $1.46 billion. While profit of $1.58 a share beat analysts' estimates, revenue declined slightly and missed projections.

Federer cruises to Rogers Cup semifinals
Haase will have to play aggressive, high-risk tennis from the start to defeat Federer, and hope that most of what he tries works. Especially for Shapovalov, who has been on fire all week with wins over Nadal and Juan Martin Del Potro , among others.

The company is now down by -3.78 percent from yesterday's close. "This is continuing to happen". In the future, it'll no doubt rely even more heavily on those originals, so the company's sky-high expenses probably aren't going to wane any time soon.

Netflix has lost content before, including pictures from Sony, Paramount, MGM and Lions Gate.

The streaming television company said this week that it is raising the price of its service in Canada.

The Magic Kingdom will launch a new streaming service in 2019 that will exclusively offer animated and live-action Disney and Pixar movies, starting with releases such as "Toy Story 4" and the sequel to "Frozen".

The other service will be based on Disney and Pixar movies and television shows.

Cardinals' Rally Cat found by rescue group on streets of St. Louis
Louis Feral Cat Outreach posted a photo of a kitten that was trapped at the City Garden overnight. Louis says that they are sure it's the same cat because of the markings on his back and legs .

Disney already has its toes in direct-to-consumer businesses.

Fluent says 56 percent of all US households now pay for at least one streaming service, and 43 percent pay for Netflix.

The new ESPN over-the-top offering meant to appeal to streaming video users will not be the same channel that cable subscribers now receive.

The announcement saw Netflix stocks drop as much as 5 per cent in after-hours trading, over fears of tough competition in the subscription video on demand (SVOD) territory. It may take a few years for that to happen, but the consensus in the sports TV industry is that Disney could not afford to wait any longer to find out.

As part of its widely anticipated effort to start the ESPN streaming service, Disney said it would buy another 42% of the BAMTech streaming platform for $1.6 billion - after buying one-third of the company for $1 billion past year. The company had previously said it was anticipating 8 million subscribers by 2020, a goal it now said is conservative.
