Stan streaming Disney
Stan now holds streaming rights to Black Panther and many other popular Disney properties.

Nine's 2019 success is likely riding on the outcome of the video-on-demand streaming wars and, as major US producers Disney and Warner Media ready themselves for battle with Netflix, Nine must pick a side.

As part of the Nine-Fairfax merger, the new Nine ended up with 100% ownership of Stan (Australia’s number two streaming service). What light has emerged from the financial black box that is StreamCo suggests that Stan is a rarity in the world of subscription video on demand (or SVOD in the trade’s ugly acronym). The company expects Stan to break even this year, and is surprisingly well placed to emerge as the key Australian player.
