According to The Wall Street Journal, Disney Chief Strategy Officer Kevin Mayer confirmed the news, while also insisting that their plans were 'pro-Disney' rather than 'anti-Netflix'.

"We've turned our attention to the one platform seeing growth challenges," he explained. "That's the television platform."
