Disney+ - Medianext.MX - 19-05-2023

Big and somehow hard news coming for Disney+ starting next week: as it addresses a lot of financial woes and losing subscriber numbers (in part due to Hotstar losing streaming rights to the IPL to Viacom18 and JioCinema), the platform is culling over 50 original shows (including two dozen original series, most of which were short-lived, another dozen of FX and Hulu Originals, made-for-streaming movies, and almost, if not all, music and entertainment specials). This move will happen globally, and affect all Disney+ operations worldwide (including Hotstar in India and Southeast Asia and Star+ in Latin America).

At the same time of announcing the move (which happened last week), Disney executives are planning to merge both Disney+ and Hulu offerings into a single app by the end of the year; this move is in part due to all platforms now sharing the same framework and tech stack, and the need to improve viewer activity and eventually avoiding subscribers to jump apps, but it is also designed to boost subscriptions to the Disney Bundle:
