The mouse moves online as Netflix teams up with Disney

By Chad Richards, Contributing Writer

In 2012, Netflix struck a deal with Disney to be the exclusive provider of all current, and a large catalog of past, Disney movies. In May, we learned some of the more specific details of this deal: Netflix would have the exclusive streaming rights to all upcoming films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar starting with 2016 releases. That means titles like Captain America: Civil War, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Finding Dory (upon its release) and other movies going forward will only be available on Netflix and no other streaming services.
