Disney titles coming to Netflix Canada about 8 months after theatrical release
TORONTO - Disney titles are coming to Netflix Canada starting next year.
On Thursday, Netflix Inc. and The Walt Disney Studios announced a multi-year exclusive licensing deal that will bring first-run Disney live-action and animated films to the popular streaming service.
Starting in mid-2015, Netflix Canada subscribers will be able to watch new movies from Disney's live action division, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, Disneynature and DreamWorks Studios about eight months after the titles leave the theatre.
That means upcoming titles like "Finding Nemo" sequel "Finding Dory" and "101 Dalmatians" live-action spinoff "Descendants" will likely land on Netflix.
Disney most recently licensed the pay TV broadcast rights for its productions including "Frozen," "The Avengers," "Brave" and "The Muppets" to Corus Entertainment (TSX:CJR.B), which aired them on The Movie Network and Movie Central channels.
Netflix launched a Canadian service in 2010 and is home to popular TV series such as "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," as well as a wide variety of films.
The company has about 48 million members in more than 40 countries.
