    They absolutely will too. Their cash cow is hurting bad (with zero signs of even slowing their losses) and they're desperate for a source of revenue to replace it.

    How can anybody who owns Disney be hurting? Are they paying their execs $1B/day each?

    ESPN is hemorrhaging cash, along with their other cable TV properties. Mostly their ESPN stations, though, because they have huge NBA, NFL, and MLB contracts to go with a decline in subscribers - cord cutters.

    I thought ABC owned ESPN? Are they both owned by Disney?

    Jesus, just sell ESPN to NBCS or FoxSports and cut their losses. ESPN is AOL at this point.

    ABC is Disney. CBS is Viacom. NBC is Comcast.

    I don't know any of this. I assume the boards of those three completely interlock and the largest private stakeholders are the same 10,000 people?

    It has been that way for a while. ABC was bought by Disney in 1995. Viacom bought CBS in 1999 and Comcast bought NBC in 2009.

    Rogue One is on Netflix Streaming as of this week.


    A Kind Of Murder:

    Noir movie about a writer who wishes his wife dead. And now she is. Let the mystery begin. For this style, it at least held my attention and didn't have TOO many "Oh, come ON!" twists like other movies in this style has. Worth a gander if you're into this style.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    AFAIK it won't be. The MLS digital rights were part of their rights deal that started a few years ago and will be on this service.

    Disney is starting to include more and more of the non-kid stuff. I just got back from a Disneyland trip (**** y'all I like Disney) and Marvel and Star Wars were everywhere, heck they just redid Tower of Terror at DCA as a Guardians of the Galaxy ride. It's not the R-rated stuff but it's not all Princesses.

    I believe Disney was the parent company for Tombstone. Which is NOT a kids' movie.

    ESPN might still be their most profitable entity right now. I know it was five years ago.

    Yes Disney has companies that make adult themed stuff but Disney itself shies away from it. Doing something through Marvel Studios, Miramax, Lucasfilm, or Buena Vista back in the day or Hollywood Pictures shields them in many resects. (even though it is common knowledge they own the studio) It can also be used later on to help with the creative accounting studios love to do to avoid paying points on the back end.
