During Disney’s second-quarter earnings call on May 10, CEO Bob Iger told investors that The Walt Disney Company would be taking several measures where Disney+ is concerned. For starters, the entertainment giant would begin pulling content from the Disney+ streaming platform, as well as the Hulu platform, nearly immediately. Iger also said that the company plans to increase the subscription fee for the ad-free Disney+ tier sometime this year, saying that the decision would allow Disney “to better reflect the value of [its] content offerings.”

During the call, Disney CFO Christine McCarthy said that the company intends to “take a write-down” in the fiscal third quarter of $1.5 billion to $1.8 billion. Removing content from both streaming platforms will be part of that effort. It’s a sad thing for Disney+ subscribers but a good thing for Disney, as the write-down will allow the company to remove that value from its balance sheet for the third quarter, meaning it won’t be accounted for as costs when it comes to future reporting periods.

“We are in the process of reviewing the content on our DTC services to align with the strategic changes in our approach to content curation,” McCarthy told investors during the call. “As a result, we will be removing certain content from our streaming platforms.”

Per CEO Bob Iger, Disney is “confident that we’re on the right path for streaming’s long-term profitability” and that the company would be “rationalizing the volume of the content we make and what we’re spending.” Further, Iger announced that the company will soon roll out a Disney+/Hulu “one-app experience” to U. S. subscribers of both streaming services.
