And you can see the next in the "Star Wars" saga in 2015, or you can wait till 2016, when it will be streamed live on Netflix.

While the Disney company has an agreement to show its new theatrical films on Starz, that agreement ends in 2015. Thereafter, all new theatrical films will be streamed on Netflix, and it would seem to make sense to start the agreement with a big one like the next "Star Wars" film. Actually, two big ones. "Avengers 2" is also suppose to be released in 2015.

And the rich get richer.

The deal with Netflix is suppose to be worth $300 million an year to Disney, and while new theatrical films won't be seen on Neflix till 2016, films released straight to DVD/Blu-ray will start being shown next year in 2013, as will any films in Disney's backcatalog of films.

Actually, one of those Hollywood business decisions that seems to make sense for everybody.

Disney, I presume, gets more money.

Netflix gets a huge backcatalog and future catalog of films to stream.

 Starz gets the money it is now paying Disney to do, like alot of movie channels, original programming.

And if the original programming is shot in Hollywood, there will be more demand for people both before and behind the camera in Hollywood.

And while Dreamworks Animation and the Weinstein Bros. already stream their films on Netflix, Disney will be the first of the Big 6 to do it. The only question is what the other 5: Fox, Paramount, Sony/Columbia, Universal/NBC, and Warner--will do.

Netflix is losing a ton of customers on the bad decision they made to link their streaming service to Silverlight.

We lowly Linux users cannot watch Netflix streams...unless we shell out additional $$ for a separate box.

This makes not sense, because they DO stream ok to Android via Chrome, which is...wait for it...Linux.


Several years of "campaigning" to Netflix by worldwide Linux users has resulted in absolutely 0 customer support on this issue.  There was a rumor last year that by mid 2012, they'd have a Linux client available.  This did not materialize, however.

So, on the occasions we do wish to stream a movie, we use Amazon Instant Video.

Unless Netflix gets in the 2010's, I, and a whole bunch of Linux users, won't be watching SW or anything else that essentially constitutes a funneling of money to Disney via Netflix. 

This is really funny, in an ironic sort of way, because Pixar is a big part of Disney's 'team' now, and the heavy lifting on Pixar's computer based animation, the rendering engines, and indeed Disney itself prior to The Merger, run Linux and have done so for nearly a decade.

I won't hold my breath, but I'd sure like to see this deal with Netflix have Disney "strong arm" Netflix into joining the rest of the streaming community in supporting the platform Disney itself uses.
