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 War 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.

Pay-per-view and physical home video rental services such as Redbox would not be affected by this deal either.

This deal would also not take into consideration movies released prior to 2016 by Disney or its subsidiaries. Netflix already has films from Disney available individually under its streaming service.

First announced back in 2012, Netflix outbid HBO and other pay TV companies for this wide-reaching deal with Disney.
