Stan adds Disney and Marvel to streaming service

Streaming service Stan has inked a deal with the Walt Disney Company that will see shows including the Marvel and Star Wars movies appearing on the Nine-owned platform.

The programs will start appearing on the service from December 14 as part of the existing subscriber package.

Stan’s latest deal follows the service signing MGM and Starz in June as the service passed the million subscriber mark.

The competitive video on demand market is dominated by Netflix and includes Fetch, 7Plus and the ABC’s iView. Last week, Ten launched its CBS All-Access streaming service into the space while Foxtel launched its movies on demand service, Foxflicks in August.

Foxtel also has a content deal with Disney which sees the same programming across the subscription TV provider’s Disney Movies and Disney Kids channels and streamed via FoxFlicks our On Demand service along with Disney’s new release movies available in the Foxtel Store.

Included in Stan’s Disney deal is content from Disney’s biggest brands including Walt Disney
Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm and Disney Channels.

Feature movies will include the Toy Story series, Finding Nemo, Frozen and The Lion King along with Marvel action productions including Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War and the Iron Man series.

Mike Sneesby, Stan’s CEO, said about the deal: “Disney is one of the most iconic entertainment brands globally and we are very proud to be partnering with them to bring a huge collection of their biggest live-action and animated films and TV programmes to our customers.

“With hits from across all their biggest franchises including Disney Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm as well as Disney Channels’ TV series and movies, the deal further illustrates Stan’s ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the world’s very best premium entertainment.”
