It isn't news that Netflix and Disney are going to be working together for the next few years since Disney gave them the right to all of the new films that will hit movie theaters in 2016. Now we know just when that will happen and we will get to see the first results of that union - September.

“From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive U.S. pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar,” said Netflix content chief Ted Sarandos in a blog post. This means that it will only apply to theatrical releases. However, there are separate agreements in place with Netflix and Disney, including original programming agreements. Marvel's Daredevil debuted on the video-streaming service last year.
The move represents Netflix's desire to be the biggest company in livestreaming as they continue to try to get access to content that is not available on rival services. Just last year around this time they pulled a ton of big-name movies from their platform in the U.S. because they were easy to find in so many other locations. Netflix typically uses summer to move around some of the content in its library, and it looks like this year will be no different. They are already planning on scrapping a bunch of "non-exclusive" titles so that they can be replaced with new exclusive movies and TV shows, though we don't know for sure what will be leaving.

Netflix has been amping up how many original shows it produces, but it does still lean heavily on licensing deals from third-party providers, which is why so much content isn't available in every country - it really depends on the contract deals that have already been made.
