Disney Set To Start Own Streaming Service for Its Programming and ESPN Sports

August 9, 2017

It's appears the marriage between Disney and Netflix is over faster than the 55 hour marriage of Britany Spears and her childhood friend, Jason Alexander. While Netflix signed on to air Disney programming back in 2012, it only started to offer their shows as of last year.  But now “Big Mouse” plans to launch its own Netflix-type service in 2019. That means starting in 2019, all Disney programming will begin to transfer from Netflix to their own subscription-based service.  In addition, Disney, which owns ABC and ESPN, will launch a new multi-sport service featuring about 10,000 live regional, national, and international games and events a year, including Major League Baseball, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, Grand Slam tennis, and college sports. Both platforms will allow those without a cable or satellite subscription to view Disney and ESPN programming.
