Disney fans are already excited for the new Disney+ streaming service to launch on November 12, but an added bonus of this platform is that content won’t be regularly changing due to expired licensing deals.
One of the downfalls of streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu are that groups of TV series and films regularly leave the platforms to be replaced by new ones, which can be annoying if you’re part way through a series or film.
However, most movies and shows on Disney+ will be permanent additions, eliminating this concern for subscribers.
A Disney+ spokesperson spoke to ComicBook, saying: ‘There will not be a ‘rotating slate’ of licensed movies each month.’
‘With Disney+, beloved classics from the Disney vault will now stream in a permanent home, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King – the entire thirteen film Signature Collection – all available on day one.’
In the past, Disney would move content to and from its Vault, with movies that had been out at cinemas and on home video being released again at a later date, making them more valuable.
However, this will be more difficult to continue now that Disney is entering the streaming market, and it will be more profitable for them to keep a hub of vintage content in one place.
