Redbox will stop selling Disney movie codes as part of settlement

  Redbox will stop selling Disney movie codes as part of settlement Disney's lawsuit against Redbox is over, and it's not great news for Redbox. The two sides have agreed to a settlement that will have Redbox stop the sale of movie download codes from Disney disc packs. Attorneys for Disney had accused Redbox of violating copyright by offering the codes separately from the discs that went into rental kiosks. Redbox had accused Disney of anti-competitive behavior and succeeded in thwarting a preliminary injunction that would have blocked sales, but its defense fell apart after Disney reworked the disc packs' terms to make code access contingent on how you bought the movies rather than physical ownership.

Disney's rollout of its service differed from that of many competitors that came before because it included international markets from the get-go and enjoyed the benefit streaming subscriptions having already evolved into a popular way to watch. So comparing Disney's launch with predecessors has those big caveats. That said, Sensor Tower noted that HBO Now grossed $23.7 million on mobile during its first 60 days, which coincided with the release of a new season of Game of Thrones. Showtime's streaming service grossed $1.2 million in the comparable timeframe.

Disney Plus is perhaps the most high-profile example of traditional Hollywood reorienting itself to compete in streaming video against the likes of Netflix, Amazon and, most recently, Apple. Disney Plus, which launched Nov. 12 for $7 a month, was one of the first in a surge of new streaming services all launching within months of each other, a trend sometimes called the streaming wars.

Netflix’s $3 mobile-only plan is coming to more markets .
Last year, Netflix rolled out a mobile-only plan in India, in a bid to increase its subscribers count for the region by reaching customers who couldn't afford to pay for a full-fledged streaming plan. Soon after that, we learned that Netflix was piloting a similar plan in Malaysia, a move that confirmed its mobile-only plan makes sense for some markets and that other countries in the region could get the same subscription options as India. Good news: It turns out that Netflix does want to bring the mobile-only subscription to more markets in the future.
