Discover the big winners of the New Media Timeline

The more time passes, the more inappropriate and in line with our uses the chronology of the media appears.

For their part, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video and TV networks believe they have been shunned. Though their broadcast window is more favorable now, they don’t seem happy to see Netflix overtaking them. Disney has previously indicated that it does not wish to enter into this agreement on these terms.

At this time we do not know what is planned for VOD and DVD film releases. As a reminder, these media are increasingly suffering from the accessibility of productions on streaming services and even more so from the fact that they end up on piracy platforms…
