The Disney + streaming channel doesn’t seem to like the competition very much. In fact, who likes it? But what he did recently has every chance of annoying Netflix or even “saddening” them a little.
Obviously, in the light of the multitude of streaming channels around the world, competition is a very common thing. Therefore, it may be inconvenient for one of them to broadcast series on which the logo of another appears at some point.
Disney + refuses to advertise on Netflix
This is also the case with Disney +, which has chosen to delete any Netflix footprint from Marvel series such as “Daredavil”, “Jessica Jones”, “Luke Cage”, “Iron Fist”, “The Defenders”. or “The Punisher.”
The move came immediately after it was announced that these series would disappear from Netflix and move to Disney +. They have been uploaded to Disney + with minor tweaks to make any mention of Netflix disappear.
The announcement was made on Twitter:

However, it should be remembered that Netflix has always preferred the slightly uncensored and much darker versions of its series, since Disney + is a streaming channel for the whole family. So, in this context, there have been concerns about additional editions of the series moved here.
Fortunately, as far as we know, at least in the case of “The Defenders”, it seems that no censorship has been applied.
Moreover, at the moment, there is a concrete reboot plan for the “Daredevil” production.
In conclusion, although the decision of Disney + is a fair one, since it “adopted” these series on its platform, we can say that the movement denotes a certain lack of self-confidence. After all, Netflix has been, is and will remain the most visited streaming platform in the world for a while.
