If that wasn’t enough, Netflix has announced that it will also be gaining the rights to the recent blockbusters ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘Maleficent’ and ‘Big Hero 6’ as well.
The Chief content officer for Netflix, Ted Sarandos, said that the company is glad that their relationship with Disney, which has been going on for a long time, has been taken to the next level with this deal. He also added that viewers in Australia and New Zealand will be able to watch Tangled and Star Wars: The Clone Wars among other shows and movies on Netflix now.
Disney and Pixar have a track record of producing some of the most lovable and popular animated and live-action movies, and Netflix users won’t be limited to a few of their great works. Recent successful movies, like Frozen, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Saving Mr. Banks will be part of the movies those subscribers will be able to view. Even Muppets Most Wanted, Planes and Thor: The Dark World is included in the deal.
Catherine Powell, MD of the Walt Disney Company in the region, stated that there will be no dearth of options available to consumers and that the catalog of content will continue to be expanded into the future. She also added that this deal is recognition of the fact that Netflix is a huge player in the entertainment industry today and viewing TV shows and movies isn’t the same without it.
Netflix, however, hasn’t confirmed if the hit, award-winning shows like Orange is The New Black and House of Cards would be included in the deal or not. The critically acclaimed and Oscar-winning movies like Up and Frozen are sure to be the main attraction of the deal and will surely increase the popularity of the subscription based service as it tries to pry away the subscribers from Foxtel, Quickflix and the ever increasing IPTV providers.
