Netflix brushes off streaming threats from Apple, Disney

Feige added that the Disney+ Loki series will be so large, and history-spanning in scale that its story is really something that could only be told over the course of a longform story, which really makes it seem as if when these series launch, they're going to be required watching for MCU completionists. Some might even say this all happened on objective. But that might actually be good news for viewers who aren't keen on getting only a bunch of new Disney movies.

Netflix said it is looking forward to a "strong slate of global content" in the second half of the year including the third series of The Crown, this time starring Oscar-winner Olivia Coleman as Queen Elizabeth II and Stranger Things. It will also release more than 25 original series and 10 original films, documentaries and specials by some of the industry's most prolific and creative storytellers.

The company had started developing potential shows and many of them hails from Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel.

Disney, which recently completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox, also announced that the entire 660-episode-plus library of Fox's "The Simpsons" will be coming to Disney+ when it is launched. In total over 7500 television episodes and 500 movies will be available. "We will be testing different options in select countries, where members can, for example, watch Netflix on their mobile device for a lower price and subscribe in shorter increments of time", Netflix said.

With the exception of a sizzle reel revealed at the end of the presentation, the company didn't share any footage from the titles that are now filming or have completed filming.

"There is some concern that real competition is entering the market, but Netflix is still a good proxy for investor risk appetite, especially for technology", said Joel Kulina, Senior Vice President of Institutional Cash Equities at Wedbush Securities.

Disney+ will combine offerings from powerhouse brands including Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars with content from Hulu and sports network ESPN. "While it is hard to say that South Korea is an immature market, they want to increase its appeal to young smartphone users".

When you compare what Disney brings to the table at the outset versus what Apple brings, the scales are tipped heavily in Disney's favor.

Like Netflix, Disney Plus will be free of ads.

The new monthly pricing plan is about 3,000 won cheaper than Netflix's current cheapest billing scheme for South Korean consumers.
