From the company that owns ABC TV which doesn't offer free streaming anymore unless they have an agreement with your cable carrier.

This is basically just a revamp of Disney Movies Online that closed at the end of 2012. I think what's new is their alignment with Apple/iTunes.


It's them versus the UltraViolet consortium. I think they sense the time is right to step back into online streaming given the success of UV.

Disney raised the price of its (1) day pass for entry to the Magic Kingdom to $99 (+ tax).


Their theme parks remain packed.


Their resort hotels are @ full occupancy.


They must be doing something right.

What would you expect from a dumbed down country that likes many of the TV shows AVS Forum members pan here?

Great, more fragmentation in the video download market.

With iTunes commanding more than 65% of the non SVOD electronic market (last time I checked) why not go in that direction? IMO, UV is not the success story some try to make it out to be.

I expected this move, given the companies ties, but fragmentation is very consumer unfriendly. Ultimately, all of them are competing to be the big fish in a shrinking ocean. The sell-through market, digital or physical, is shrinking because the mainstream consumer is less and less interested in purchasing content.
