Disney CEO Bob Iger said Disney-owned television content has surpassed 4 million downloads on the iTunes Music Store since videos were added in October 2005. Disney content includes shows from ABC, the Disney Channel and ESPN/ABC Sports. “Technology has transformed authority from the distributor and creator to the consumer. Today’s consumer is more tech-savvy and governs how and when and at what price content is sent to them,” Iger said at his keynote speech Monday at the TelecomNext show in Las Vegas.

Oooh! Well, I’d like all of the Disney Classics in 720p H264 quicktime format for around £7.99 a pop if that’s ok Mr.Iger! wink

Seriously though, good going. Now how about rolling some of that non-Pixar content out to the non US iTMS’ ?

Take out ‘Lost’ and Disney/ABC probably hasn’t sold more than a dozen video downloads.

I just want them to put House Of Mouse, Filmore, and the Goofy Movie on I-Tunes. I’d buy those. Hope their listening. Lost isn’t so great - Long live cartoons!

Hatman-

‘Lost’ was great, but has gone down hill.  Nevertheless, it’s consistently the best selling video at iTMS.
