The OTT revolution is on the rise all over the world today, despite facing stiff competition from up-and-coming streaming services, there are three that stand tall – Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney+.

Netflix was in on the whole streaming game for a long time and as such, they had the jump on the rest of the market and this resulted in them absolutely commanding the OTT scene, something that is true even today. However, the competition was getting warmed up as well, and with a company like Disney, which owns such a wide portfolio of franchises under their belt, it was almost a given that they would jump in on the wave as fast as possible.

For those of you who don’t know yet, Disney+ is Disney’s very own streaming service, that offers users, unrestricted access to their catalog of titles, ranging from old Disney classics, all the way to the more recent Marvel movies, Pixar movies, and some region-specific hits as well.

The last few years have been very busy for Disney, with the entertainment giant taking over franchises like Star Wars, Pixar and Marvel, while also churning out their own hits. Their content is loved all over the world, and to have access to this content as well as exclusive content down the road, is something that Disney felt, was worth putting into their streaming service.

The Disney+ platform relies on the technology developed by the Disney Streaming service, which was originally known as BAMtech. Over the years, Disney increased its’s ownership in BAMtech, and after the latter helped develop the ESPN+ service, they used the same framework to create a streaming service for their own content, and so, on November 12th, 2019, Disney+ was born.
