Disney says it’s going to pull most of its properties out of Netflix in 2019 and launch its own streaming platform. What that means for consumers (and their kids) is currently an unknown, but we have some guesses about what it means for Disney. WIRED’s news editor Brian Barrett joins the podcast this week to discuss the possible outcomes. Also, the hosts discuss the launch of Facebook Watch, and why the Facebook app on your smart TV might be worth exploring soon.
Some notes: Adam Rogers writes about Disney’s streaming future. Brian Barrett on Disney’s AR efforts. Brian also wrote about anime on Netflix. Finally, read Peter Rubin on Netflix’s recent acquisitions. Recommendations this week are Expense, the Opinel No8 folding knife, and What If Sports.
