Disney Might Pull Movies From Netflix Streaming

January 16, 2010 • By

Uh oh! We love being able to stream movies straight from Netflix online to our TV, but if Disney goes through with pulling their movies from the Netflix stream we’re going to be seriously sad!

Movie studios are beginning to see that Netflix is on its way to owning the streaming market, and in turn are taking action. Disney is working to renegotiate their deal with the Starz movie channel and part of this deal would be blocking Netflix from streaming any of its movies and instead giving that right to Starz.

The hope with the new Disney/Starz deal is that Netflix would have to pay a separate price to Disney for licensing rights if the company chooses to stream Disney movies.

Hmm..thoughts?
