Disney + reaches a last minute deal with Amazon to include their streaming service on Amazon's Fire TVs. Disney + was launched on November 12 and will offer a host of new and existing TV series and movies from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar and more. Mouse House's streaming platform is expected to start a new era for The Walt Disney Company.

More importantly, consumers have feared that competition between services could further complicate access to favorite titles.

No doubt the new deal with Amazon will pull Disney + ahead of the streaming wars.
