This move comes after Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that the Walt Disney Co will cut about 7,000 jobs as part of a companywide cost-savings plan and “strategic reorganisation”.

In a statement, Iger said Disney is embarking on a “significant transformation” that management believes will lead to improved profitability in the company’s streaming business”.

The company, which owns Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar, will focus more on its core brands and franchises, Iger said.

It is rumoured that Amazon Prime Video might stream HBO content in India in the near future as several HBO Max shows such as The Flight Attendant and Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin are already available on the platform.
