    I see @DisneyPlus with it's @hulu Beta on it and @ESPNPlus bundle plan $15 bucks taking over 2024 many dumping @netflix basic plan $16 bucks.

    I think @Disney should acquire @ParamountPics with @paramountplus.

    Hulu on Disney+ Beta Launch: What You Need to Know
    Are you a fan of Loki on Disney+ and The Bear on Hulu? Well, soon, you’ll be able to watch two of the most popular series on streaming without having to leave one app for another.

    Hulu on Disney+ rolls out its beta version to Bundle subscribers today before officially launching in the spring. It’s an exciting next step for Disney and its streaming endeavors.

    To find out more, we spoke with Joe Earley—Disney Entertainment’s President of Direct-to-Consumer—about the roll out, what Hulu on Disney+ will look like and what’s next for Disney streaming.

    Here’s everything you need to know:

    What is Hulu on Disney+?

    Starting today, when Bundle subscribers open their Disney+ app, they will see a Hulu tile appear alongside the Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic tiles.


    Clicking on the Hulu tile will take subscribers to a Hulu Hub, where they’ll be able to choose from thousands of movies and series from Hulu’s library for playback via Disney+. They will have access to extensive Hulu content, including award-winning Originals, next day TV, and a huge library, right there, inside Disney+ without the friction of navigating from one app to another.

    Why is this being called the “beta” phase? When will the official launch happen?

    What Bundle subscribers will see today is a limited beta version, with the official launch slated for March 2024.

    “It’s an exciting next step for Direct-to-Consumer, but it’s important that people have managed expectations about what the experience is going to be,” Earley said.

    The beta version is intended to help Disney better understand the consumer’s needs and wants when it comes to Hulu on Disney+ before it officially launches in the spring. It will also give parents time to set up controls that make sure everyone in their household is watching what’s appropriate for them.

    But wait, will Hulu’s series and films that are more geared toward adults conflict with the more family-friendly Disney+ brand?

    No, according to Earley, who explained that the company has already seen great success outside of the United States where Disney’s classic and general entertainment titles exist in one app.

    He underscored that one of the company’s top priorities is ensuring Disney+ remains a safe space for families. And that the two-step launch approach will allow Bundle subscribers with a Disney+ subscription to explore Hulu content and give Disney+ subscribers time to adjust parental controls and establish profiles for the entire family, if they don’t already exist.


    “There are a few reasons why we think this is going to be an exciting new experience for our subscribers,” Earley said. “Even before the launch of Disney+, research was very clear that consumers want ‘kid time,’ ‘we time,’ and ‘me time.’ I want incredible stuff for my kids, I want to watch things as a family, and then I want to put the kids to bed and watch things that are more adult in nature.”

    What does Disney want to accomplish with Hulu on Disney+?

    Earley hopes that this integration continues Disney’s commitment to putting subscribers first and creating a seamless viewing experience for all. He also hopes it will drive deeper engagement and discoverability by having more content available in one place.

    “It’s an unbelievable value in terms of the price point for the Bundle, to get all this content in one place,” he said. “Beyond unlocking that experience for our existing Bundle subscribers, our hope is to inspire Disney+ and Hulu standalone subscribers to upgrade to the Bundle as well, once they see everything that can be accessed.”

    [​IMG]

    Will Disney+ and Hulu still be available as standalone apps?

    Yes. This is not a replacement for standalone Hulu or Disney+ – both will still be available as separate offerings. Hulu + Live TV and Premium add ons will still only be available within the Hulu app, along with the full Hulu SVOD content library.

    What does this mean for Disney’s streaming strategy overall?

    For Earley, the focuses for Disney’s streaming business are reaching and maintaining profitability, which CEO Bob Iger has said is one of the key four pillars of building at Disney, as well as turning streaming into a very healthy margin business.

    “The road to get there requires that we optimize what we have now in terms of content, marketing and user experience, and then monetize it in the best way possible,” he said. He also noted that continuing to innovate is important for the platforms to stay competitive.

    “One of the things that Hulu on Disney+ is going to achieve is it’s going to increase engagement, which reduces churn,” Earley added. “When someone goes into Disney+ they have this enormous other world to access and I think that people are going to discover content they never even realized was on Hulu.”

    [​IMG]

    What else should consumers know about the Hulu on Disney+ beta roll out?

    “I hope consumers realize that one Bundle subscription — which is competitively priced — can unlock the incredible original content, the blockbuster films that come from all our studios, and a 100 years’ worth of stories from Disney+,” Earley said. “Not to mention the amazing titles that come from Hulu Originals, FX, 20th Century Studios, Searchlight, and all of our amazing partners.”

    The company's earnings report is set to be unveiled on February 7, 2024. The company is forecasted to report an EPS of $1.01, showcasing a 2.02% upward movement from the corresponding quarter of the prior year. At the same time, our most recent consensus estimate is projecting a revenue of $23.54 billion, reflecting a 0.11% rise from the equivalent quarter last year.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    For the entire fiscal year, the Zacks Consensus Estimates are projecting earnings of $4.38 per share and a revenue of $91.99 billion, representing changes of +16.49% and +4.76%, respectively, from the prior year.

    Investors might also notice recent changes to analyst estimates for Walt Disney. These revisions typically reflect the latest short-term business trends, which can change frequently. With this in mind, we can consider positive estimate revisions a sign of optimism about the company's business outlook.

    Empirical research indicates that these revisions in estimates have a direct correlation with impending stock price performance. To take advantage of this, we've established the Zacks Rank, an exclusive model that considers these estimated changes and delivers an operational rating system.

    Ranging from #1 (Strong Buy) to #5 (Strong Sell), the Zacks Rank system has a proven, outside-audited track record of outperformance, with #1 stocks returning an average of +25% annually since 1988. Over the past month, the Zacks Consensus EPS estimate has shifted 0.07% upward. Walt Disney is currently a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold).

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Investors should also note Walt Disney's current valuation metrics, including its Forward P/E ratio of 20.76. This indicates a premium in contrast to its industry's Forward P/E of 15.48.

    It is also worth noting that DIS currently has a PEG ratio of 1.68. This popular metric is similar to the widely-known P/E ratio, with the difference being that the PEG ratio also takes into account the company's expected earnings growth rate. The Media Conglomerates industry currently had an average PEG ratio of 1.75 as of yesterday's close.

    Apple buying Disney outright makes some sense to me. Otherwise, anything Disney related has been dismal the last 2 years.

    Disney Is Reportedly In Advanced Talks To Sell Part of ESPN To The NFL As It Prepares to Launch A Standalone Streaming Service
    [​IMG] Luke Bouma

    [​IMG]
    Back in July of 2023, in an interview with CNBC, Disney CEO Bob Iger left an option open to sell some of its TV assets as it struggles with cord-cutting. This included selling part of ESPN to a partner. That was quickly followed up by a report that Disney is in talks with the NFL, NBA, and MLB to have them take joint ownership of ESPN along with Disney.

    Now the New York Post has reported that ESPN and the NFL are in advanced talks that would see the NFL buy part of ESPN. This would also give ESPN control over the NFL Network and other NFL media properties.

    CNBC First reported that these talks with the NFL would include Disney taking a stake in the NFL Network, NFL.com, and RedZone. This could help both sides benefit by giving the NFL access to ESPN productions and Disney access to NFL money. The Wall Street Journal also added that the NFL+ service could be a part of this deal with Disney.

    Disney currently owns 80% of ESPN, and Hearst owns 20%. Disney could easily sell part of ESPN to the NFL and NBA and still own a controlling majority of ESPN.

    NFL money could help ESPN finalize the new streaming service. A partnership could also see ESPN subscribers to this service get exclusive NFL content.

    For now, we will have to wait and see what happens. Now that ESPN is building its own direct-to-consumer streaming service, it clearly is looking for partners to help make that a reality. Disney reportedly hopes to launch this ESPN streaming service in 2025.

    Walt Disney became profitable within the last five years. We would usually expect to see the share price rise as a result. So given the share price is down it's worth checking some other metrics too.

    With a rather small yield of just 0.6% we doubt that the stock's share price is based on its dividend. Revenue is actually up 14% over the three years, so the share price drop doesn't seem to hinge on revenue, either. This analysis is just perfunctory, but it might be worth researching Walt Disney more closely, as sometimes stocks fall unfairly. This could present an opportunity.

    You can see how earnings and revenue have changed over time in the image below (click on the chart to see the exact values).

    Walt Disney is well known by investors, and plenty of clever analysts have tried to predict the future profit levels. So we recommend checking out this free report showing consensus forecasts

    A Different Perspective
    While the broader market gained around 21% in the last year, Walt Disney shareholders lost 13% (even including dividends). Even the share prices of good stocks drop sometimes, but we want to see improvements in the fundamental metrics of a business, before getting too interested. Regrettably, last year's performance caps off a bad run, with the shareholders facing a total loss of 3% per year over five years. We realise that Baron Rothschild has said investors should "buy when there is blood on the streets", but we caution that investors should first be sure they are buying a high quality business. While it is well worth considering the different impacts that market conditions can have on the share price, there are other factors that are even more important.
