Disney and Sony have reached an unprecedented streaming agreement!
Disney and Sony Pictures Entertainment have reached a multi-year agreement for U.S. It includes streaming and TV rights to Sony Pictures’ new theatrical releases across Disney streaming services Disney+ and Hulu, as well as traditional TV channels including ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX, and National Geographic.
This deal covers theatrical releases from 2022-2026 and begins for each film following its Pay 1 TV window.
Disney+ subscribers can look forward to seeing not only Spider-Man and other entries of Sony Pictures’ Universe of Marvel Characters but past iterations of Spidey as well. This would include the original Sam Raimi trilogy starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, as well as the more recent The Amazing Spider-Man films, which saw Andrew Garfield don the costume.
This is a win for fans, who will benefit from the ability to access the very best content from two of Hollywood’s most prolific studios across a multitude of viewing platforms and experiences.Chuck Saftler, head of Business Operations for ABC, Freeform, FX Networks, and Acquisitions in DMED’s Networks division
The Jumanji and Hotel Transylvania franchises will also make their way onto Disney-owned streaming services soon.
We are thrilled to team up with Disney on delivering our titles to their viewers and subscribers. This agreement cements a key piece of our film distribution strategy, which is to maximize the value of each of our films by making them available to consumers across all windows with a wide range of key partners.Keith Le Goy, president, Worldwide Distribution and Networks, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Notably, the deal provides Hulu access to a significant number of library titles beginning as early as this June!
