"The event, focused on the Company’s direct-to-consumer streaming services including the upcoming Disney+, is scheduled to begin at approximately 5:00 p.m. ET / 2:00 p.m. PT and conclude by 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT."

 

So I would think that there is more than an expectation of details - 3.5 hours of pure direct-to-consumer presentation.

Disney+ service, which will launch in the U.S. market on November 12, 2019, at $6.99 a month.

 

 

 

Following its U.S debut, Disney+ will rapidly expand globally, with plans to be in nearly all major regions of the world within the next two years.

Given Disney's deep linking of merchandising its IP across everything from Drink bottles to Theme parks, It could be argued that content on Disney+ will be entirely ads.... :)

Sky signed a "multiyear" deal with Disney in 2015, which must be close to coming to an end..... I wont hold out much hope in it being renewed... https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/68343641/null

 

So that another arrow sticking out of Sky's corpse....

Same with Netflix, their deal runs out 31 Dec 2019 by the looks. Is this the first SVOD that is owner of the content direct to the public? Interesting they have Hulu involved

I Believe so although you could say Netflix with their own content is doing that, not really interesting about Hulu as its part owned by Disney (60% Stake)

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-12/netflix-just-dropped-8-billion-in-market-value-on-disney-news

 

Neflix lost 8 billion dollars in share value (5% down), Disney gains 25 billion dollars in share value.

 

Disney gain 11.9% - 210 billion Gone up to 235 billion.

 

Story didn’t give percent gain in Disney shares, so hope I worked it out right.

I said this on another thread, it also is relevant here

 

 

 

This is interesting  A study by Ovum analyst Tony Gunnarsson cited at the recent NAB trade show noted that the majority of consumers will subscribe to only 2.25 streaming services, leaving many players out in the cold.

 

 

 

We are looking at 6 or 7 services, 2.25 are used on average per consumer. Yes, some players will be out in the cold, or will they. If the 2.25 is relatively evenly spread, then all of them will be out in the cold. If 2.25 is about 1/3 of the SVOD mainstream services, then 2.25 is like the size of the market suddenly reducing by 67% . The other factor is if the 7 services have a nice spread of very cool content, then the average consumer is foregoing 2/3 of what they would like to watch.

 

 

 

In short, the growth of streaming will be a fail for providers and for consumers
