28% of Netflix Users Claim They Will Cancel When Disney, Marvel, Star Wars Leave the Service

Netflix may be the streaming giant to beat, but with Disney amassing the forces of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, and now Hulu behind it, that giant could be knocked down a peg. And the House of Mouse and its upcoming streaming service Disney+ could hit Netflix where it hurts most: their subscribers. A new poll suggests that Netflix users could cancel their subscription to the service if it lost Disney or Disney-related titles like Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and the Star Wars films.

Disney Could End Up Owning All of Hulu, May Also Buy Your Organs

When The Walt Disney Company acquired 21st Century Fox, one of the acquisitions included the company’s 30% stake in Hulu. That gave the company a 60% stake in Hulu.

Could Disney Finally Cancel ‘The Simpsons’, and Make More Money In the Process?

The Simpsons has been on for…*checks notes*…500 years, and it shows no signs of stopping. But that might change once Disney takes control of Fox properties as part of the big Disney/Fox deal. It’s not that Disney has anything personal against The Simpsons. Instead, it looks like the animated series is worth more dead than alive to the House of Mouse – all because of that sweet, sweet syndication money. Is The Simpsons final season at hand? According to Variety, Disney is mulling over pulling...
