@DisneyPlus Steamrolling Towards A Massive Launch; #SVOD #DisneyPlus

New York (The Verge) — Disney+ won’t just nail the content; it could nail the technicals theverge.com/2019/8/27/2083….

As we approach the launch of the Disney+ service, which seems like a guaranteed hit, it’s worth paying attention to the technical aspects. We’ve been taking for granted the fact that Disney can successfully keep the servers running. There’s a good reason for that: BAMTech.

As we approach the launch of the service, which seems like a guaranteed hit, it’s worth paying attention to the technical aspects. We’ve been taking for granted the fact that Disney can successfully keep the servers running, but I don’t feel bad about that.

The reason I don’t feel bad about taking the technicals for granted is because I have watched BAMTech succeed at video streaming services for quite a long time. Disney bought BAMTech in 2017, and it has long been the gold standard of white-label streaming. Before being bought by Disney, BAMTech successfully handled the streaming services for Major League Baseball and HBO (the good HBO Now service, not the bad HBO Go service).

Disney made a lot of savvy moves in the run-up to launching Disney+, but none were savvier than snapping up BAMTech to ensure that its apps will work well. It’s pretty remarkable that “working video streaming” is something we can just assume will not be a problem now. Dieter Bohn/@verge
