Disney CEO Bob Chapek spoke Monday about the company’s reorganization to prioritize the creation and distribution of content for streaming, and shared some detail regarding upfront sales.

“Despite how profound that change was for us, relative to how we operated and particularly how the industry operated, it really has got strong buy-in by our execs,” Chapek told the Credit Suisse Annual Communications Conference during a virtual appearance.

  How to Watch 'Cruella' on Disney Plus and in Theaters: Release Date, Trailer and More Emma Stone's villainous turn will be available to see in theaters and on streaming on May 28."As we know, Cruella de Vil is pretty villainous.

Disney+ is a streaming platform created by Disney and launching on November 12th. Sadly at first it will only be available in the United States and all other countries will be able to access it during the period of 2 years after the US launch date. Thus, switching between a few seems to be the best strategy. I haven' t had a chance to test the switching method for Disney+ but so far I can at least confirm that it definitely catches NordVPN every time. ExpressVPN seems to be working fine but we'll see if switching is necessary.

The company said Tuesday that it will offer a bundle that includes Disney+ , ESPN+ and commercial- supported Hulu for .99 a month. The new option from Disney (DIS) is the latest move in its plan to beat Netflix, and the pricing would make the streaming offerings incredibly competitive. Hulu alone costs .99 a month for the plan without ads or .99 a month with ads , ESPN+ is .99 a month, and Disney+ will be .99. That would add up to .97 if purchased à la carte.

“Everyone appreciates the fact that they have more time to do what they do best, given the increase in output we have,” Chapek added. Walt Disney has been feeding the Media and Entertainment Distribution group with programming from its film studios, general entertainment television studios and the sports group.

Those divisions — Studios, General Entertainment and Sports — produce for theatrical, linear and streaming distribution with a focus on the company’s direct-to-consumer outlets, which include Disney+. Chapek said the real test of success for the reorganized Disney as it accelerates its direct-to-consumer business will how the studio’s current five-year plan plays out.

And he added that managing content creation distinct from distribution has allowed creative teams across the studio to be more innovative and adventurous. An example is Marvel Studios, led by Kevin Feige, going beyond movie making to creating a slew of TV shows for Disney+, including Secret Invasion starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, and Armor Wars, with War Machine actor Don Cheadle, appealing to Iron Man fans, Chapek added.

“As you increase output, and go deeper and deeper into mining the Marvel mythology, it doesn’t have to tap itself out. We’ve got great stories to tell, and we’re telling great stories,” Chapek told the investors conference.

The Walt Disney boss, while touting the recent launch of Disney+ globally, told the investors conference the studio did not envision an ad-supported version of its flagship streaming platform. “We have no such plans to do that. We’re happy with the model we got,” he insisted.

That said, the company’s digital ad business is strong regardless. Chapek said that over 40 percent of the company’s upfront sales were committed to streaming and digital, a new high watermark as the company continues to shift from its traditional linear businesses to streaming and direct-to-consumer.

“I think it speaks to the nature of how this business is rapidly changing,” Chapek said at the Credit Suisse TMT conference. “We are really happy with the upfront, our sales team did an extraordinary job.”

Chapek said that CPM increases were up double-digits, and a Disney source added that live sports were a key differentiator in the upfront negotiations. The company also secured diversity, equity and inclusion commitments from the holding companies it works with, per a source. CPG, financial services, and media and entertainment were among the categories committing the most during the upfront.
