Streaming services are becoming more and more popular. Millions are cutting the “cable” cord and purchasing Roku's or TV's with streaming built in. I know here in my own home, we have a Roku and Hulu and Netflix. And with Hulu we get free HBOMax right now. Who needs cable? But let's speak more to working from home for Disney, and their streaming service.
Many of you are familiar with the working at home opportunity Disney provides in customer support — but you can also work remotely for Disney via their streaming service department too.
Remote Work for Disney's Streaming Service
Obviously, Disney jumped on the streaming service wagon too. They wanted to cash in on all the “cable-cutters” too. That being said – they now have a profitable and popular streaming
service audience. With this viable streaming service, Disney now hires Content Insertions Assistants.
What Do Disney Content Insertion Assistants Do?
Well — first things first. They get to work from home! Below is the actual job description from Disney for Content Insertion Assistants:
