Netflix has previously made deals with Dreamworks Animation and The Weinstein Company, but today they have secured what may be their biggest contract yet. Today the internet company has announced that they have made an agreement with The Walt Disney Company that will allow Netflix to stream new releases from all of the company's studios before they go to pay TV channels such as HBO, Showtime, and Starz. This deal includes all feature films made by Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios and Disneynature. The only real unfortunate thing about this deal is that we still have to wait a while before it kicks in. Netflix has been given an exclusive contract, but it won't kick in until 2016 (meaning that we're going even beyond The Avengers 2). That said, Disney's direct-to-video releases will start appearing on Netflix next year. But what about the here and now? »
