Wanna see a Disney movie on VOD? Better get Netflix

Posted on

Bolstering its hold on the VOD market, Netflix announced today that the company has signed an exclusive deal with Disney for subscription TV rights to all its live-action and animated films starting in 2016. The deal includes Disney, Walt Disney Animation, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, and Disneynature; Lucasfilm was not announced as part of the the deal, but Disney’s $4.05 billion acquisition of that company has not yet been completed.

The agreement also includes Disney’s direct-to-video releases beginning in 2013, and a catalog deal that brings select Disney classics like Dumbo and Pocahontas into Netflix’s VOD inventory.
