Media giant Walt Disney plans to start its own online streaming services in the US for movies, shows and sports in a shift aimed at bringing productions directly to consumers.

The plans come as the firm grapples with falling television subscriptions and challenges from online video.

It will launch an ESPN-branded sports service early next year and a Disney streaming service in 2019.

The firm also said it would end a distribution deal with Netflix.
