Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, recently went into great detail about Disney’s plans to reach cord cutters during their second quarter earnings call (a conference call in which a public company discusses the financial results of a reporting period). Iger talked about everything from their new ESPN streaming service to what they charge for streaming services such as Sling TV.
