Five on Friday: Mergers, Launches and Failures

Featuring Disney, Apple, MoviePass, GateHouse and Gannett

Looking back at 2019, we covered hundreds of subscription launches, mergers, subscription closures, financial triumphs and disasters, and much more. In this week's Five on Friday, we're going to take a look at the top five subscription stories of the year. Disney+ lands the mouse some serious cheddar, Apple tries to strike gold with subscriptions…but doesn't find it, MoviePass finally fizzles out, broke and embarrassed, the government goes after subscription scams, and the GateHouse/Gannett merger creates a newspaper powerhouse that will be hard to compete with in the next decade.
