I definitely heard Disney’s done with licensing renewal when deals get expired so I’m wondering if their Starz deal is almost done yet so they can port more stuff on to Disney+.

I wonder why there moving everything to STARZ, is it some kind of deal or something?
Apparently Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the last film of the Starz deal in 2015 and since it’s on the Turner networks, I’m guessing the deal ended already. Disney’s Netflix deals were the ones that came after Starz with Marvel TV being separate and 2016-2018 movies being another deal. Still, curious why Starz still have Disney movies unless they also have TFA along with Turner at the same time.

They used to have a deal with Starz to be the first tv network with Disney movies that was until they chose to go with Netflix. Starz can still air those movies just not 2016-present. Freeform and Disney networks can and have aired post 2010 movies as well. Alot of the live-action ones end up on Turner networks though. (Jungle Book remake, Pete's Dragon remake,etc) and some have aired on Syfy (the BFG for example)

I wonder why Freeform doesn't want to make an Pretty Little Liars-themed marathon along with the premiere of its' spin-off tomorrow. It's the network's biggest show, so I bet its' spin-off gets an season 2 due to popularity.

none of your business

"While the broadcast schedule includes Saban Entertainment fare such as PowerRangers in Space, Fox Family's lineup has no 'fantasy violence' and isgrounded in offerings like The All New Captain Kangaroo, Shining Time Station, TheMagic Adventures of Mumfie, Pee Wee's Playhouse and Little Mouse on thePrairie."

I still miss the days where ABC Family had Jetix and aired different animated series. That was when I watched the channel the most. I still enjoy their holiday events and sometimes I'll watch one of the movies on their lineup, but the channel just became so dull once it focused on their original series and reruns of old sitcoms.
