Disney Spotlights Comprehensive Direct-to-Consumer Strategy at 2019 Investor Day


The Walt Disney Company’s highly anticipated Investor Day provided an extensive overview of Disney’s comprehensive direct-to-consumer strategy, and included presentations on Hulu, Hotstar, ESPN+ and the upcoming Disney+ service, which will launch in the U.S. market on November 12, 2019, at $6.99 a month. The service will offer fans of all ages a new way to experience the unparalleled content from the company’s iconic entertainment brands, including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, and will be available on connected TV and mobile devices.



During today’s event, which took place on the studio lot in Burbank, California, investors heard from Disney’s senior management team, including Bob Iger, chairman and chief executive officer; Kevin Mayer, chairman, Direct-to-Consumer and International; Christine McCarthy, senior executive vice president and chief financial officer; Lowell Singer, senior vice president, Investor Relations; and Jimmy Pitaro, president, ESPN and co-chair, Disney Media Networks. Presentations also came from Michael Paull, president, Disney Streaming Services; Randy Freer, chief executive officer, Hulu; Russell Wolff, executive vice president and general manager, ESPN+; Uday Shankar, president, The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific and chairman, Star and Disney India; Ricky Strauss, president, Content and Marketing, Disney+; and Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+.

“Disney+ marks a bold step forward in an exciting new era for our company—one in which consumers will have a direct connection to the incredible array of creative content that is The Walt Disney Company’s hallmark. We are confident that the combination of our unrivaled storytelling, beloved brands, iconic franchises, and cutting-edge technology will make Disney+ a standout in the marketplace, and deliver significant value for consumers and shareholders alike,” Iger said.

Several creative executives from across the worlds of Disney—Jennifer Lee, chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios; Pete Docter, chief creative officer, Pixar Animation Studios; Kathleen Kennedy, president, Lucasfilm; Kevin Feige, president, Marvel Studios; Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide; Sean Bailey, president, Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Productions; Courteney Monroe, president, National Geographic Global Television Networks; and Jon Favreau, executive producer and writer, The Mandalorian—offered a glimpse into Disney+’s impressive and extensive content slate.

Disney+ will launch in November with a robust library of theatrical and television content, and in its first year will release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials by some of the industry’s most prolific and creative storytellers.

Disney+ streaming service targeted for Switch
Posted on April 11, 2019 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News




During an investor stream, it was just announced that the Disney+ streaming service is coming to consoles. While PlayStation 4 appears to be the only confirmed platform at present, the image above refers to platforms they “want to be on”.

Disney+ is expected to launch sometime this year. It will house TV and film content from the company as well as brand new shows and more.

Thanks to Jake and Matthew for the tip.

Can we just get one company that provides all these streaming services as one and we get to pick elected channels - sports channels for a set price :lol:

Shouldn't have more than 3 streaming services. A TV service, Netflix and now this . Anything else isn't worth it.

There may be a Hulu and D+ combo package like the one Hulu offers with Spotify now, which would save consumers some money too. Unbeatable deal if it happens, but maybe I'm just biased lol

Amazing price point. They're going to kill it with parents with small kids who love Disney movies. I'm most interested in learning about their original series though. I've seen just about every Disney movie I wanna see, Netflix's success has come from Original content and licensing popular shows from other production studios. After a month or two I've seen every Disney movie I need to see, what's keeping me coming back?

they're not releasing all eps to their new shows at once. no binging for now. so if you enjoy a show, you'd have to wait a week. i'm totally ok with that since i rarely binge
for someone that is trying to watch simpsons, it's going to take awhile :lol:

it's more than just disney, they got the fox, pixar, etc. new movies that just hit theatres will probably be streamed on disney+ before any other site

disney+ and chill :evil:

That's the irony of the current streaming era. Streaming services became popular because people didn't want to pay $60 or $70 per month for cable but with content becoming segmented between some many different services (Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and Apple's new service, etc.) its getting to the point where you need to spend $60 if you want all the content.

I do see people reaching a breaking point with all these services. I have cable, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video (I see it as a throw in with Prime). I'm considering getting Disney+ if it lets me get all of Hulu's content

Streaming wasn't beneficial for people only soendig $70 on a cable bill. It was more beneficial for people paying double to triple that.
