Money talks. It’s quite obvious why they’re launching Disney+
Cable is dead, and Disney wanted to emphasize that. They recently killed Disney Channel for various reasons, but the main reason is because of money, like obviously.
The coming of Disney+ is pretty much expected. Disney is the juggernaut of entertainment companies and losing Asia as a market is going to be a huge toll on them, since they pretty much are trying to monopolise the entertainment industry. The company owns Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar and recently, almost all of Fox’s entertainment divisions, including the 20th and 21st Century Fox labels.
In addition to the launch, Disney would be releasing more than 20 originals just for the APAC region. These projects include projects from content creators and from contemporary genres such as drama, comedy, fantasy, romance, sci-fi, etc.
Disney+ would also contain content not just from Disney itself but also from their other properties such as National Geographic, Fox, Marvel and Pixar.
Corporates… always going for that green more than their customers. Disney Channel didn’t die for this.
Currently, Disney+ is available in these regions:
- New Zealand
The streaming service would also launch next month in South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. There’s no announced release date yet for the Philippines but since it has been confirmed, it could be coming very soon. Let’s wait for the announcement.
Once again, Disney doesn’t care for you, only your money. They are really pushing the agenda that cable is dead. Streaming is more profitable since you can earn from ads as well as subscriptions, either monthly, quarterly and yearly. (If they can do daily, why would they not?)
