Report: Disney Has Found its New Streaming Service Head

disney streaming serviceVariety is reporting this afternoon that Disney has identified the person that will head up their new video streaming service. According to the report, former Apple and Samsung exec Kevin Swint has been hired as Senior VP of Disney’s BAMTech Media and will be charged with running the new service, which is set to launch in 2019.

Swint’s tenures at both Samsung and Apple were focused on video content distribution, so running the new service seems like a natural fit for him.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it. Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets. Other sites include DMR and VideoGamesStats.com.
