  1. On Facebook Disney+ just released a video with some of the movies for New Zealand. It’s very impressive and includes all of the Marvel movies, at least I think it did as it flashes by so fast. I also noticed While You Were Sleeping I wonder if TVNZ are allowed to screen it? 🙂

  2. Thanks, Trevor. Yes, Disney is bypassing traditional media publicity for a solely social media focus at this stage. So you’ll need to keep up with Facebook and Instagram for the latest. Don’t confuse streaming and linear TV rights. Disney content will still screen on free-to-air and pay-TV — you just won’t find it on other streaming services and Disney+ will be the official home of all things Disney.

  3. OK Philip,I did wonder about that. I think it’s going to be VERY popular going by the reaction, just hope we don’t have any problems like the USA had/having 🙂
