Walt Disney studios and Netflix entered into a multi-year agreement that makes the online video distributor the only US subscription service with licensing to show first-run live-action and animated films from the studio. And it’s doing it in the first pay window, which is a very big deal.

The deal will begin with Disney’s theatrical releases in 2016. Read the full story at The Next Web.
