Pay-TV group Foxtel will revamp its movie channels package in response to the loss of content from the Walt Disney Company. Foxtel’s existing Disney Movie Channel will cease broadcasting on 7 November, ahead of the launch of the Disney+ subscription video-on-demand service on 19 November. The Disney and Disney Jnr channels will remain on Foxtel until at least the end of February. Meanwhile, Foxtel plans to launch its own drama and entertainment streaming service, while Stan owner Nine Entertainment is said to be in talks with Disney regarding a content deal.
