- Disney to launch streaming services for movies, live sports
By TALI ARBEL, AP Technology Writer - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Starting in 2019, the only subscription streaming service with new animated and live-action Disney and Pixar movies will be the Magic Kingdom's own app.Netflix already seemed to be bracing for the potential loss of the Disney movie rights earlier this week when it announced its first-ever acquisition — the purchase of Millarworld , a comic book publishing company that will develop films and kids shows based on its portfolio of character.CEO Robert Iger said Disney is considering whether it should continue licensing Marvel and Star Wars movies to outside services like Netflix, move them into the Disney app or develop individual services for them.The sports service is coming in early 2018, a little later than previously announced, and will air baseball, hockey and soccer games, tennis matches and college sports through ESPN's popular mobile app.Customers will also be able to buy fuller streaming packages from the baseball, hockey and soccer leagues, and watch them on the ESPN app."Ultimately, we envision this will become a dynamic sports marketplace that will grow and be increasingly customizable, allowing sports fans to pick and choose content that reflects their personal interests," Iger said on a conference call with analysts.[...] having a direct relationship with customers tells Disney exactly what they're watching, giving it powerful tools and information that could help feed decision-making and, on the sports side, sell advertising.

Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly said Tuesday that the service is a way to unlock "latent" customer demand — the company has found that shoppers spend more at the home than they do at the stores.Best Buy, the nation's largest consumer electronics retailer, is trying to make itself indispensable to shoppers as people shop more online. It's been beefing up its customer service in the appliance areas of its stores.
