CNBC reports that a Disney spokesperson said: "The direct-to-consumer business has evolved, with many more entrants looking to advertise in traditional television, and across our portfolio of networks".

Netflix will be enemy #1 for Disney, at least for now -- but eventually, Disney will ban ads from all competitors big and small as it leads into the launch of its own streaming service in Disney+.

Disney CEO Bob Iger previously told The New York Times: "What Netflix is doing is making content to support a platform. We're making content to tell great stories. It's very different". While Disney executive Agnes Chu chimed in with: "We're not making a large volume of things just to make them. Everything we do, we have a very clear focus that it needs to meet the standards that the originals set, and, hopefully, take it to another level on Disney+".
