Disney recently launched a frequently asked questions (FAQs) page for Disney+ that included answers to common questions about the new service. Most of the information on the FAQ page was content we already knew, but one section was something new and worrisome for cable TV subscribers.
According to one page in the FAQs, Disney plans to move some library content from the Disney Channel to Disney+. In a post titled “Is anything being removed from the Disney Channel and moving to Disney+?” In the answer, Disney says that “library content, including past seasons, will move to Disney+.”
It sounds like some back catalog content currently available to Disney Channel subscribers through the Disney Channel app will be moving to Disney+. This means if you are paying for cable TV you will no longer have access to back catalog of Disney programming unless you also pay for Disney+.
This is in line with what Disney did with some ESPN content after ESPN+ launched. Content like “30 for 30,” which was available on other services like Netflix moved to ESPN+.
How much content and what exactly will be leaving the Disney Channel is unknown at this time. For now, we will have to wait and see.
Cord Cutters News reached out to Disney for comment on what content will be moving. Disney did not reply to our request for comment before the publication of this post. We will update this story as we learn more.
