Disney+ To Include Third Party Non-Disney Content
Many are excited for the launch of Disney+. We are hoping that in addition to current and new Disney movies and shows, all of their older stuff like Kim Possible and Gargoyles will be available as well. It appears that we may be able to enjoy non-Disney programs as well. In a recent investor call, Robert Iger said that while the main focus of the streaming service will be inhouse, they’re not shying away from third party content.
This makes a lot of sense since the rule of the Internet is “content is king.” Disney will definitely want to make sure a healthy majority of the content is their own, but getting other content is not a bad idea. When you think about it, the strategy is like a reverse Netflix. Start with a bunch of original content, but then bring in third party content.
