Disney’s Video Push

Disney plans to put more content onto the iTunes for consumption of video iPod, by early next year, the recently-appointed executive VP of digital media for the Disney ABC Television Group Albert Chang said at a conference today… “We own the shows “Lost” and “Desperate Housewives” from beginning to end of production, so now when we know a show will be good we negotiate ahead of time to clear distribution on all platforms.”

“We expect our mobile video subscriber business to reach 14 million in 2009, up from about 200,000 today,” he also said.
