The company announced during its latest earnings report on Tuesday it intends to pull all its movies from Netflix. 

Instead, Disney plans to launch a branded direct-to-consumer streaming service in 2019 starting in the U.S. and expanding globally. 

CEO Bob Iger told CNBC's Julia Boorstin Disney had a "good relationship" with Netflix, but decided to exercise an option to move its content off the platform. Movies to be removed include Marvel as well as Disney titles. It will also be making a "significant investment" in exclusive movies and television series for the new platform.

It's Disney; they could make it $50 a month and people would still pay for it.

On a Dutch news website I heard it'll cost $4,99  a month. That sounds too good to be true. Hope it gets global then soon! Because I don't even have Netflix anymore. lol1 So, bring it on!
