I just read an article that Neflix has cut a deal with Disney. According to the article, starting with 2016 feature films, Netflix customers will be able to stream a wide assortment of movies from Disney and its studios! This is great! Walt Disney Studios and Netflix's partnership means Netflix customers will be able to stream a catalog of titles from Disney and four of its subsidiaries: Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios and Disneynature. This will make Netflix "the exclusive U.S. subscription television service" for Disney's new releases. This puts the cable network Starz out of the picture as it will no longer carry films from Disney or its susidiaries. Because of this, shares of Netflix jumped 14% Tuesday after the news of this Disney deal became known. I think I need to buy some stock in Disney and in Netflix! Especially after the Star Wars news from last week! Have a great day and happy myLotting!!!

Well, there actually already many Disney programs and some movies that are available on Netflix. However, I do think that this is great news because the one area where I know that there aren't any Disney movies on Netflix is the big screen movies and the animated movies. It is really too bad that this is still several years from happening because I know that my children would enjoy this but by the time that it happens, my children will be too old to be excited about it.

Netflix lost me as a customer when they raised their prices and cut their packages.

So before this netflix didnt have any disney movies that they rented out? Thats awesome that because of this new change that netflix has increased by 14%. Hopefully they dont raise their prices as well. Netflix was pretty affordable. My husband had it for a few years.
