Disney: Is A Streaming Plan Hatching Amid Cable Woes? | Stock News & Stock Market Analysis – IBD

Disney does have exposure to the subscription video-on-demand world with its one-third ownership of Hulu — which is rolling out a live-TV service in the near future — and there has been chatter that Disney might be near acquiring a stake in Major League Baseball’s video stream arm, BAM Tech. Disney is “probably still years away” from launching its own streaming service, wrote Macquarie analyst Tim Nollen in a separate report on Wednesday, but the timing of a possible BAM stake is “intriguing,” in light of its multiyear distribution deal with Netflix. – Elaine Low, Investor’s Business Daily http://ift.tt/2a95O6l
