“What we’re concerned with is the Disney+ DTC strategy. If you remember, they changed their strategy from the first rollout… they have a bigger plan with more subs, more entertainment content, more sports and I’m not convinced that’s the best idea for Disney. I wonder if they’re rethinking their view to come out with such a huge idea. They want to above 30 million, 40 million subscribers, I’m not sure that’s the best use of their capital.
