Netflix & Disney: The Good News & The Bad News

December 5th, 2012 · No Comments

People like to moan about there not being anything to watch on Netflix are over-joyed that Netflix has just signed an exclusive movie deal with Disney. I’m excited about it too, but there’s one little thing we all seem to be forgetting: We’re not going to see any of this new big-time content until 2016. 

Don’t get me wrong. It’s a great deal. In the short run, by 2013, Netflix will be getting “high-profile Disney direct-to-video new releases.” In other words, that’s not going to be top favorite titles such as Beauty and the Beast or Lion King but I’m sure it will be something that your children will like. Netflix will also be some older Disney titles in the same time-frame. This will include such movies as Dumbo, Pocahontas, and Alice in Wonderland.
