Disney has now sold nearly 500,000 movies and approximately 12 million ABC television programs through the iTunes Store, according to Disney CEO Robert Iger. “Since we made our movies available on the Apple platform in mid-September, almost half a million have been downloaded,” Iger said during Disney’s fourth quarter earnings call. “This underlines the strength and uniqueness of our film library, and indicates there is a consumer appetite for movie downloads that complements demand for DVDs… In addition, approximately 12 million ABC TV programs have been purchased since October, 2005 via iTunes downloads.”
