The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Austin Smith and Joe Magyer, discuss the top business and investing stories.
In this segment, Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) shares jumped up this afternoon, after an announcement that the company has come to an agreement with Disney (NYSE: DIS) and bought the rights to show Disney movies shortly after they finish their run in the theaters. Our analysts discuss whether this could be a historic game-changer for Netflix, or whether it's a lot of market hype over a nice-looking headline, representing a deal we don't really know anything about yet.
