After nearly a century, Disney (NYSE: DIS) has become synonymous with entertainment. The company's family-friendly theme parks, products, and media entertainment have long been a staple for consumers around the world. Disney has evolved and changed with the times, and nowhere is this more apparent than in its successful foray into the streaming-video market.
