I think I just had a nose bleed figuring out Disney structure. Which arm will build Netflix rival?

- BAMTech Media
- The Walt Disney Company Corporate
- The Walt Disney Studios
- Media Networks
- ... something else?

Any advice on how to learn more and comment if it’s a good group to work at?

Hows culture across different groups? Thanks!

    The (new) group that will build the Netflix rival is called "Direct To Consumer" and it also includes bamtech, all ad sales, and international Disney Channels. It's separate from Media Networks which is now just ABC, ESPN, and the domestic Disney Channels. So confusing.

      I can imagine there'll be a lot of internal conflicts. Licensing department will want to make money off library. And DTC will want to keep all of them.

      Haven't seen anything about hiring...there will be redundancy before that happens I expect. Wondering how licensing is going to fare under Chapek.

    Bamtech is under a new group within Direct to Consumer called Disney Streaming Services now. Building the app, postings are on the Disney career sites, though you’d need to be careful if that’s the specific product you want to work on, lots of other products with postings.

    BAMTech is building. Lots of open jobs, check the career site. Careful what you wish for.

      Are you saying it's not all sunshine and roses over there?

      It takes a lot of fertilizer to grow roses.

    Probably BAMTech. Although their primary focus is live streaming, they have the infrastructure already for static streaming.

    I work for a direct competitor and I don't like our future compared to theirs.
