Every new Disney, Marvel film on US Netflix - but what about NZ

By Raffaella Ciccarelli

Netflix is one step closer to world domination - well, when it comes to online streaming at least.

The subscription TV and movie service has announced that come September it will be the exclusive US pay TV home for all Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar films released from 2016 onwards.

Meaning, it will be the only place to find movies such as Captain America: Civil War, The Jungle Book and the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in the US.

"The 2016 (Disney) releases will start rolling on in September and we'll share specific dates/titles closer to their premiere on the service," Netflix told American publication Variety.

The deal was actually signed three years ago and is estimated to have cost Netflix a whopping $400 million.

However, it looks like New Zealand subscribers will be missing out. A spokesperson for Netflix Australia said the deal only applies to the United States, at this stage.


The move is sure to have Netflix's competitors shaking in their boots. A limited movie selection has always been Netflix's weak link. However, this deal will overcome that; adding an impressive array of blockbusters to its selection of original TV shows, which include the acclaimed Daredevil, Jessica Jones and House of Cards.
