You probably have a Netflix account.

Today, the streaming service has almost 150 million paying subscribers – making it the largest paid video-streaming platform in the world.

However, Disney is expected to widely disrupt their winning streak this year with its competing service, Disney+. Set to launch at the end of 2019, the Mouse House has described their venture into streaming as their ‘number 1 priority’.

This includes all your favorite Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, Fox films, and TV shows. All ABC, ESPN content and the History Channel will also find homes on it. Disney also owns 20% of Vice Media, so expect to see some original content made for Disney+, to appeal to millennials, too.

    I believe what will happen down the road is Netflix will merge with someone, CBS will merge with someone and so on, just to merge customers into one place a lot more easily.
    Rates will go up as mergers happen also, but it will still be cheaper than paying for each service.
