A Disney spokesperson says it has become “increasingly difficult for them to avoid conflicts relating to board matters.”

With Disney planning to put ESPN online, Twitter live-streaming sports like NFL football, and Facebook prioritizing live video, online video is a likely area of overlap.

The pending departure of the two Disney board members was revealed in a securities filing Friday.
