Disney-ABC Extends Licensing Deal with Netflix and Amazon
Disney-ABChas extended their licensing deal with Netflix, while creating a separate deal with Amazon to stream Disney content. With the extended Netflix contract, new episodes of Disney-ABC series like Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and others will be available via their streaming service 30 days after air. Other television shows from ABC, ABC Family and the Disney Channel will also be available for streaming.
The new contract with Amazon will allow members of Amazon Prime, a loyalty program, to watch many of the same Disney shows via instant streaming. Members will be able to watch past episodes of Lost, Felicity and other programs – and Amazon promises there should be 13,000 streaming videos available for members to watch by the holidays.
