Netflix Inc signed a multi-year agreement with Walt Disney Co, gaining exclusive U.S. pay television rights to Disney movie releases from 2016.

Does this mean we have to wait 3 years until movies start showing up on Netflix? Or does it mean we're going to get to see time traveling movies 3 years before they're even released?

So Netflix is going to charge an additional premium for Disney content?

Probably not. In this case, "pay television" means Netflix or cable. So Netfilx will have the distribution rights instead of, say, ABC Family. Now, that doesn't mean Netflix's prices won't go up, since I'm assuming this cost them a lot of money. But there probably won't be any kind of added surcharge.

If I'm understanding the article's timeline correctly:

Starting Tuesday (today? next week?), classic Disney movies will be available via Netflix (Disney and Netflix also signed an agreement on a multi-year catalog deal which will make available Disney movies such as "Dumbo," "Pocahontas" and "Alice in Wonderland" to U.S. Netflix members from Tuesday.)

Starting in 2013, new direct to DVD movies will be available via Netflix (Disney's direct-to-video new releases will also be made available on Netflix starting 2013.)

Starting in 2016, new theatrical releases will be available(Netflix Inc signed a multi-year agreement with Walt Disney Co, gaining exclusive U.S. pay television rights to Disney movie releases from 2016.)

For such a short article, it was kinda hard to understand :-\

I don't know how all of it works, but Sony currently holds the rights to Spider-man and Fox owns the rights to the X-Men, so I'm not sure Disney can do anything with them at this point, even on television.

Didn't they do an x-men animated show on the Disney channel a year or so ago (Wolverine and the x-men)?
It was already on Netflix prior to this deal though..

Yeah, it turns out that Marvel still owns the TV rights, so just ignore what I wrote earlier.

yea, that was before the disney deal. (it was more than a year ago.) they moved their animated shows to toon disney before the deal was done. it was weird. I think spectacular spidey switched networks too. can't exactly remember.

And yet you can find Birth of a Nation on DVD very easily, and that movie is way more racist. Song of the South is really only mildly racist.

Screw off, Disney. Just release it under Miramax or something, and put a disclaimer at the beginning that the content does not reflect modern views of the Walt Disney Company.

I wouldn't mind if Disney opened up their back catalog of live action films from the '60s. Also release the entire Bill Nye the Science Guy series. I'm not paying 3K for the DVDs because they're educational.

No, netflix was dying when all the traditional broadcast/movie companies realized Netflix was eating their lunch and decided to let their movies expire on Netflix. Netflix has spent the better part of a year trying to make a deal like this happen.

*this* news gives netflix legitimacy and longevity, because for the past year they have had very little different than Amazon Video services, and since it comes with Amazon Prime... why spend extra on Netflix? Now, there will be a reason.

/okay, back to the herpa-derp... Qwikster LOL!
 
2012-12-05 09:05:54 AM  
So I guess Netflix learned to sign long term contracts. Wow. A little late but still...

/I can't imagine how much money they'd be making if they signed the same contracts a few years ago. When content for streaming was cheap.
 
2012-12-05 09:22:07 AM  
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.


You can bet they paid DEARLY for this
 
2012-12-05 09:27:00 AM  
This actually rather annoys me because I am already paying for Starz as part of my cable package, and having Disney content was really about the only thing that made that channel worth watching. If I could easily remove them from my pay channel lineup, I could throw that money towards Netflix, but Comcast them bundled up with other pay channels, so they are a channel that isn't easy to remove by itself. I've pretty much moved completely over to Amazon Prime for my streaming needs now, but this and Arrested Development is going to probably force me to reactivate my Netflix account again.

The problem with having all of these streaming services is that by the time you wind up paying for all the various services to cover what you want to watch (Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, etc) you pretty quickly get up to the price of a cable subscription so you really haven't saved any money by dropping the TV portion of our cable bill.

Netflix is around $10 a month, $120 a year. Amazon Prime and it's free streaming library is $80 for the year ($6.70 per month.) Hulu+ is $7.99 per month, $96 for the year. That's $276.

Building yourself a media machine with 2 TB of hard drive space, a BluRay Burner and as many TV Tuner cards connected to a rooftop antenna is a one time layout of $500.

I pay comcast an extra $1200 a year for cable service. Not to be snarky, but how is $1200 less than $276? Are you doing Republican Math?

Sorry, I didn't clarify like I should have. Yes, you are paying quite a bit less, but you only get a fraction of the content via the current streaming services that you do via the cable subscription, or you get it delayed by up to a year or so, so if you really want to get the full experience and catch current episodes of The Walking Dead and other shows you have to supplement the Prime subscription with buying the shows you want to watch a la carte, which adds up.

I'm foreseeing a time when Hulu and Netflix get more programming as it airs, and the price gets bumped up, and then more streaming services get added with their own exclusives that you also have pay for (such as an HBO Go subscription for HBO content, a separate Showtime bill if you want to watch Dexter and Homeland, etc), and so by the time we're done we're paying more than we were with cable subscriptions. So yes, currently it is much cheaper for the streaming services, but it seems like it is going to get to the point where you need multiple subscriptions to get everything,

Well for one thing the studio that produced and distributed Birth of a Nation no longer exists. So it is not like the people releasing the DVD have a companies imagine to protect. Disney very much still exists and totally have branding to protect. On the other hand they did release that awesome set of War cartoons, that were also super racist. They just threw an introduction with Leonard Maltin in front of each short explaining the reasoning behind them and the attitudes at the time. That said I am pretty sure I saw Song of the South sometime in the mid 1980's when it was re-released in theaters.

I log on to my Netflix this morning to see many Disney movies that were not there previously (old ones, like Pocahontas, Dumbo, Fox and the Hound, etc). My hope is they will keep adding, but they've put up enough to keep me entertained for a while. I am pleased with this.

The reason netflix was eating their lunch is not the deals they made its because people were just saying "ehhhh I dont want to watch this now, I can just catch it on netflix later......" Convenience is what killed broadcast/movie companies.

Not to mention the fact you will miss most sporting events.
