Netflix & Disney announce Canadian sub TV service

Netflix & Disney have announced a new channel to access Disney’s premium live action and animated feature films in Canada. Netflix Inc. and The Walt Disney Studios have signed a new multi-year licensing agreement that will make Netflix the exclusive Canadian subscription television service.

Beginning with 2015 theatrically released feature films, Netflix Canada members can enjoy new titles from Disney Live Action, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, Disneynature and DreamWorks Studios. Approximately eight months after titles leave theaters – quicker than has traditionally been the case on premium pay TV – Canadian Netflix subscribers will be able to watch new releases from The Walt Disney Studios in the home and on the go.

“We are delighted to be the new pay TV home in Canada for the world’s highest-quality, most imaginative and entertaining films,” explains Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “Canadians of all ages will have an incredible range of great stories and characters to look forward to.”
