They are doing these from last 20 + years most of movies sold to Netflix, still they sold contents to Rivals HBO and Amazon in some markets but its limited, things gets slower after own Disney + launch. Now they're going to focus on old strategies.

Not it's lease, most of movies year to year license, these deliver huge revenue for Disney or any other companies. Currently Netflix Renews agreement with Disney/Star for Utv catalog every year, for Disney/Star India it's make sense. if they Streaming and Broadcasting their own contents on their own platforms doesn't Generate good revenue for them.
If Disney could sell ABC. Their catelog would be the most attractive for big companies like apple and Microsoft
Why should they sell whole content library, they know their content value that's why they're currently focusing limited period syndication deals like Indian content companies Eros, Goldmines, Shemaroo, B4U, Mango Mass Media deals it's generate more revenue compares with selling whole Brand/company library.
All is not well at country’s leading broadcast network Disney Star as its top management is on its way out. Highly placed sources told Storyboard18 about exits at the top level in the Star Sports team of the network. The exodus of sorts can be attributed to the massive restructuring exercise that Disney is undergoing globally which can have impact on its India operations. The restructuring exercise is aimed at reducing overhead costs and ultimately cutting jobs.
