Why Disney+ is Losing Movies and Will They Return?

by Sumit Sharma Digital Marketing Specialist

‘Home Alone’ and ‘Home Alone 2’ are already lost from Disney+ and described the time that they are coming to the service like earlier.

You might be aware that immediately after the launch of Disney+ that was held in the month of November, it faced a problem. Even though its subscription had approximately millions of subscribers on one single day, the majority of them faced difficulty while reaching to the site on its first day itself. After that, Disney solved the issue.; however, other issues begin coming forward.

In the initial stage, some features were missing, for instance, the feature of ‘continue watching.’ It got added afterward by Disney+. Many shows on the service comprised their episodes, which were not orderly placed. The subscribers also faced the issue related to the lack of content over there, especially with the original series. It was observed that few of the subscribers preferred unsubscribing after the first season of the famous series on that service titled ‘The Mandalorian.’  The majority of the confirmed Marvel shows are one year far.

The recent thing that has been pointed out by the audience is that ”Home Alone” as well as ”Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” by itself got vanished from its site. The Home Alone 3 still exist. Some other films also did leave from Disney+ like ‘Dr. Dolittle’, ‘The Sandlot’ as well as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.’ A valid reason is hidden behind it. Gizmodo says that such movies belong to legacy agreements, which implies that they are all such movies that are missing have been licensed to some other streaming sites for a particular time. Earlier only, Disney warned its viewers that such a thing should be happening, and whenever these agreements shall get expired, the missing movies shall again return to the service by itself.

Many people know that Disney faced a bit the same problem with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens.’ Because the Starz did have the streaming rights of ‘The Force Awakens’, but Disney really wished to have that on Disney+ during the launch time. So Disney came up with an agreement for the same. The Starz did agree with that agreement of theirs. It was found that a small advertisement for Starz was present on the sign-in pages of it. But it is not possible that Disney shall be doing the same for the rest of the films. Hence, subscribers will continue films missing from the site sometimes.

There are some viewers who thought earlier that the missing films should be present for download, but it is not the case. Luckily, the subscribers who downloaded any movie before it got vanished, that particular film shall be there with them for watching. It will not be wrong to conclude by saying that if any subscriber wishes to watch the movie that is present currently should immediately download that, so that doesn’t miss watching it.
