Disney Reorganizes Content and Distribution Units to Bolster Streaming Businesses

The Walt Disney Company announced a broad structural reorganization of its media and entertainment businesses Monday, in a move to ramp up and streamline its direct-to-consumer strategy. That involves the creation of the new Media and Entertainment Distribution group, which will oversee all content monetization and streaming operations. Kareem Daniel, most recently president of consumer products, games and publishing at Disney, will lead the unit.

The move comes just under a year after the launch of Disney Plus, which has since surpassed the 60 million subscriber mark.

Under the new structure, the studios will continue to develop and produce originals for Disney’s streaming services — which include Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus — and legacy platforms. Distribution and commercialization will now be centralized under the Media and Entertainment Distribution group.

“Given the incredible success of Disney+ and our plans to accelerate our direct-to-consumer business, we are strategically positioning our

  • YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki isn’t committing to an outright ban of QAnon content on the platform. 
  • Wojcicki was asked about banning QAnon, a baseless far-right conspiracy theory, during an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow. She cited the movement’s grassroots nature as a complicating factor in banning it but added that YouTube’s policies are continuing to evolve.
  • Wojcicki said YouTube has already removed “hundreds of thousands” of QAnon videos and made changes to its recommendations tool, which she said have resulted in an 80% reduction in views on QAnon videos. 
  • Earlier this month, Facebook dealt a blow to the QAnon movement by announcing it would ban Pages and Groups, as well as Instagram accounts, that represented QAnon.

Spotify Promo Cards is a new way for creators to boost their content

Spotify has introduced a new tool that enables creators to boost their content. Called Promo Cards, the new feature generates customized assets for a creator’s content, including podcasts, albums, and even individual songs. The Promo Cards shouldn’t be mistaken with something like real-life business cards — rather, says Spotify, these new custom assets are designed to be shared on social media platforms.

Spotify points out that promoting one’s content on social media takes up more of the artist’s time, particularly if they’re a small content creator responsible for boosting their own brand. The Promo Cards are intended to make it easier to market one’s own materials even if you don’t possess graphic design skills.

Spotify for Artists enables creators to customize the graphics on their promo cards — in fact, the online tool doesn’t even require users to log in, meaning that listeners could also generate Promo Cards for their
