Disney Weighs Distribution Deals for Streaming Service

As Disney nears an April public unveiling of its Disney+ streaming services for Wall Street analysts, some key questions—including whether to distribute through U.S. cable operators or companies like Apple—are still being hammered out.

One worry is whether the service will work well from a technical perspective. With that in mind, some insiders say Disney may test Disney+ in the Netherlands at some point before it launches formally in the U.S. at the end of the year, say people familiar with Disney’s plans. The Netherlands test would be an attempt to iron out any kinks in the service before it is released to intense scrutiny for an American audience.
