Disney in talks to add SVOD platform to Movistar, Vodafone, Orange pay-TV offers – report

Monday 2 December 2019 | 15:33 CET | News
Disney is in talks with Spain's leading operators Movistar (Telefonica), Orange and Vodafone to integrate its new Disney+ SVOD service with their respective pay-TV platforms, according a report in local daily El Espanol. The US company is currently negotiating whether to offer the streaming service as an add-on or in a convergent package, as Telefonica and Orange already do with their respective plans containing Netflix. In addition, Disney may well launch its service as a standalone platform to give Spanish subscribers more options and increase its potential market, added the report.
