NEW YORK -

Disney says it is going to pull all of its movies from Netflix and launch its own streaming service.

The service will include exclusive content created just for the platform.  

Disney's also launching a video streaming service for ESPN. The shares of Disney are lowering after missing revenue expectations in the last quarter.

Meanwhile, Oprah is teaming up with Kraft Heinz on a new line of refrigerated soups and side dishes called 'O That's Good!'

The food is marketed as health versions of comfort food.

 Lastly, JetBlue is planning to voluntarily take questions and complaints via text and Twitter through a new startup investment called 'Gladly.'

JetBlue was rated the best airline this year by the American Customer Satisfaction index.
