Exclusive Home

The commercial giant known as Netflix has gained exclusive use of one of our fine, entertainment conglomerates.

Netflix has announced that its deal with Disney to be the exclusive pay TV home for all upcoming films from Walt Disney, which would include Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar, will begin in September. This deal takes effect with 2016's releases, meaning it would prevent movies such as Captain America: Civil Wa and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from appearing on HBO, Starz or even online outlets like Hulu and Amazon Prime, but would not affect previous deals, such as Starz' U.S. rights to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was released in 2015. ...

Netflix is a distribution platform that Hollywood wants. NF has money to burn, and it's willing to pay for exclusivity.

It's made the calculation it can make a nice profit, and the calculation is likely correct.
