Disney Won’t License Star Wars And Marvel Content To Netflix

Disney CEO Bob Iger shared that the company will not be licensing various Disney-owned content to Netflix.

On an investor call, he said, “We’ve actually been licensing content to Netflix and are going to continue to. We’re actually in discussion with them now about some opportunities, but I wouldn’t expect that we will license our core brands to them. Those are obviously competitive advantages for us and differentiators.”

He added, “Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, for instance, they are all doing very, very well on our platform, and I don’t see why just to basically chase bucks we should do that when they are really really important building blocks to the current and future of our streaming business.”
