Disney Will Launch a Streaming Site In the Next Year

Posted Tue Jun 7, 2011 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

CEO Iger says there will be gaming content, video, and more.

At the D9 conference this week, Disney CEO Bob Iger made some announcements about the future of digital distribution from Disney. He says that in addition to the streaming through different distribution partners, Disney will be launching their own streaming site.

The site, which Iger expects will launch in the next year, will contain not only video content, but gaming content as well. Disney will have a subscription service, a pay-per-view option, microtransactions and ad-support, but Iger didn't go into detail about just how all of that will work.

As far as the current dominant streaming service goes, Iger says that Netflix is never going to be the only option for streaming. "I don’t think that’s possible in today’s world."
