Earlier last year, Disney announced it would be pulling its programming from popular streaming service, Netflix, and create their own streaming service. Today, we are receiving more details on what we can expect from this new streaming service.
Ben Sherwood, President of Disney-ABC Television Group, told Variety that the new service will have about 7,000 to 8,000 of episodes from the Disney-ABC library. In addition, patrons of the new service can expect three to four original series and three to four original movies.
Already, a new series based on the popular “High School Musical” franchise is in the works. Sherwood noted that they are just about ready to sign the producers from the original “High School Musical” to bring the series to their new streaming service.
Disney has not announced a launch date for the new service. However, it should go live sometime in 2019.
