Disney's rival to the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime has gone live in the US and Canada. It includes the first episode of a new $100 million Star Wars series: The Mandalorian.
The launch of the Disney+ streaming platform includes an eight-part Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. The entertainment giant will increasingly face a battle for viewers against gaming and social media sites.
The US tech giant has unveiled a new video-on-demand platform with a string of much-awaited original shows. Apple no longer wants to just sell devices, but put its original content on them too.
Netflix's share price has surged by 33,000 percent since the company went public in 2002. On Thursday, another boost saw its shares hit $153 billion and overtake rival Disney.
Netflix has fired its chief spokesman Jonathan Friedland for using the "N-word" during meetings with staff. The company's CEO reportedly said the incidents showed "unacceptably low racial awareness and sensitivity."
