The Walt Disney Company is banning advertisements from Netflix across its television networks ahead of the upcoming launch of Disney+, according to The Wall Street Journal.

  • Disney, Comcast and AT&T are all set to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising for their respective streaming services over the next year.
  • Netflix spent $1.8 Billion on advertising last year.
  • Disney reportedly planned to ban ads from all rival streamers but decided to compromise with nearly every company, with the one exception being Netflix.
  • The decision to compromise with the other companies comes as a result of advertising relationships with those companies but Netflix does not show ads in its programming.
  • Netflix declined to comment on the advertising ban.
  • Disney+ launches on November 12.
