Look out, Netflix. Time
The biggest loser in Disney’s road map to a November streaming service? Apple.
The iPhone maker had a March event where the company trotted out veteran celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg, in showcasing a lineup for a fall TV service. It just neglected to show any clips, name pricing or give a firm launch date.
The message: Apple was after star power to wean consumers from Netflix.
Disney, this week, had a different message: the strength of its brands.
“All Disney in one place never existed before,” Disney CEO Bob Iger told ABC’s Good Morning, America. “That’s (like) going to Disneyland every day of the week.”
