Video streaming services, which have multiplied over the last few years to include far more than just Netflix, will soon have a new contender to face off against because Disney is joining the streaming service club- has decided to throw its considerable weight around by blocking Netflix from advertising in a number of places.
Disney Plus, which is set to have a massive lineup at launch, will be dropping on 12 November 2019 in the US, and in the run-up to this, some of the people in charge decided to instruct a few of the networks Disney owns, including ABC and Freeform, that they can’t run ads with the ENEMY. But they’re gonna let ESPN keep running Netflix ads because of like… reasons.
This new service will be launching in the United States and in a few other international areas, but not in good ole South Africa. Sadly, we’ll have to wait quite a bit longer to gain access to this service. I suppose they want to see if it’ll turn a profit in developed countries before they bring it here. Which is kind of depressing, but that’s how it is.
