Bad news for Netflix subscribers waiting out on new Star Wars & Marvel Comics movies for the flicks to show up on the streaming service.  Disney chief Bob Iger says it ain't happenin'.  He said the “Star Wars” and Marvel franchises would be on Disney’s own streaming service slated for late-2019 debut. Previously, Disney had left the door open to the possibility that streaming rights to those movies would be licensed to Netflix or another third party.  So will Disney's pull-out cost Netflix a whole lot in subscriptions when the giant launches it's own streaming service in a couple of years?  Probably not.

 

Hulu and Spotify announced a partnership yesterday that will see the two companies working together to market entertainment bundles offering both services which will be jointly sold through a single subscription plan. Initially, this bundle will be targeted towards U.S. college students and will cost just $4.99 per month – the same as Spotify’s existing student plan. The bundle includes access to Spotify Premium, the company’s on-demand music service, and Hulu’s “Limited Commercials” plan.  The companies say they’ll offer other bundles in the future to target the broader market, but didn’t announce details at this time regarding those plans.

 

Civil rights groups have announced plans to protest Kid Rock's shows next week in Detroit.  He's been booked as the opening act for a new sports arena that will house the NHL's Detroit Red Wings and the NBA's Detroit Pistons. The groups have slammed the musician because of his embrace of the Confederate flag and his expletive-laced criticism of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.  In response to a question about why the company who manages the new arena selected Kid Rock as the venue's opening performer, Ilitch Holdings President and CEO Christopher Ilitch said "While I can't control what any artist does or says, I can guide our businesses to continue bringing life-changing opportunities to people in our community.  I will always demand that our companies strive to do right by Detroit, our community and its people."  Kid ROck has six concerts scheduled at the 20,000-seat arena, starting Tuesday.
