When the the roster of speakers for this year’s TelecomNEXT includes Disney CEO Bob Iger, you know the telecom universe is shifting gears. The iTunes-Disney video downloads-served number has passed 4 million, Iger told attendees Tuesday. For those following along, that’s up from 2.5 million-plus in early February, which in turn was up from 1.5 million in mid-January. Iger credits iTunes with creating new distribution windows. That’s part of what he sees as the biggest shift in the TV buisness: “Technology has transformed authority from the distributor and creator to the consumer.”

Net neutrality: Networking Pipeline Iger said Disney does not support any net neutrality “at this time” and appreciates the pledges made by telecoms and MSOs.
