Sony Takes Over Disney’s Physical Media Production in New Deal


The continued adoption of content-streaming services among viewers has certainly played a part in the current state of physical media such as DVDs and Blu-ray for example, although that’s not to say that the medium has died off. There’s still a sizeable number of viewers out there who would prefer to keep copies of their favourite shows and movies, and a lot of big names in the industry still recognize this fact.

With that in mind, Disney recently entered into a major deal with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, giving the latter control over Disney’s operations and physical media production. With this deal, Sony will be responsible for the actual production process of discs, working with vendors, distributors and retailers.

With that being said however, this has also heralded the end of the Disney Movie Club – established way back in 2001, the Disney Movie Club gave fans access to the company’s massive library of physical media, which went on to include franchises from acquired studios including Marvel, Star Wars media, 20th Century Studios, and more.

On one hand, the shutdown of the Disney Movie Club might not come as a surprise to some, given the company’s doubled-down focus on its streaming services.
