The platforms are no longer satisfied with canceling series. They also make them disappear forever…
After the bad results of the last two quarters, Disney has decided to apply the snip. Even beyond the cancellation. The company has confirmed that is going to remove more than 50 series from the Disney+ catalog on May 26including some well-known ones, such as Willow, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, or The Benedict Mysterious Society.
The pyramidal structure on which streaming platforms are based, which need gain users continuously to maintain the very expensive investments in servers, and in the production of series and movies, It only works when you have no competitionas happened to Netflix a few years ago.
But when the market becomes saturated with platforms, like now, the entire framework collapses, because the users share.
Disney invested $30 billion in Disney+ last year alonebut the effort has not been rewarded: it lost 4 million subscribers last quarter, adding Disney +, Hulu and other services, and 2.4 million the previous quarter.
Disney+ removes 50 series from its catalog
As a result of the bad figures of the last year, Disney has laid off 7,000 workers, has closed the Star Wars hotel for the rich, and has canceled series. And now, too remove them from your catalog.
The official explanation is that “we are reviewing the content of our services to align it with strategic changes in our approach to content selection,” according to a company executive.
The reality is that Disney wants to save 3,000 million dollars in 2023, and You have to pay money to the producers of the series you broadcast on Disney+, even if they are not seen. So deleting them from the catalog, that is saved.
Those who lose are the users, since they cannot see these series, despite paying a fee. Surely one ends up on a free platform with ads, as has happened with HBO’s WestWorld. Or the Star Trek series, which is on Pluto ad-supported but can’t be seen by SkyShowtime payers (except for Strange New Worlds).
Deadline has posted the list of series that will disappear from Disney + and Hulu. In Europe some of the Hulu content is broadcast on Disney+. They will disappear on May 26.
