Netflix signs multi-year deal with Disney

Disney movies are coming to Netflix streaming.

(Reuters) - Netflix Inc signed a multi-year agreement with Walt Disney Co, gaining exclusive U.S. pay television rights to Disney movie releases from 2016.
Also, new direct-to-video releases will be available beginning next year, and a bunch of movies from Disney's catalog will be made available beginning Tuesday.

Anything that beefs up Netflix streaming is a good thing! Even if we have to wait till 2016, by which time HBO will be ready to start streaming The Sopranos on Netflix.

I guess that this is good news but I'd rather have Stargate SG-1 back.

For $74 you can buy the whole show from Amazon and never have to worry about Netflix.

The article says the Disney catalog won't be available on Netflix until 2016.

Disney movies will be available for streaming on Netflix beginning in 2016, after its current deal with Liberty Media's pay-TV channel Starz expires.

They edited the article since I started the thread. It originally said that existing movies would be made available immediately.

Your point is what? If you can spend $8 plus tax a month it's only like 9 months of Netlix.

Weird we have to wait three years, must be other contracts out.

Re: Netflix signs multi-year deal with Disney

I wonder why they announced it so soon if it will take so long? Surely this doesn't benefit much of anything?

NetFlix's stock price? Up 10 points in the last 12 hours. I'm sure they're glad for the bump.

My question is this:

Will they only be allowed to play Disney movies that are currently not "in the vault?"
