Disney Magic


Disney To Provide Movies Online
The Walt Disney Co., a holdout when it came to providing its theatrical movies to the major online film distributors, is expected to announce today (Wednesday) that it will make the recent animated Chicken Little and the live-action dramas Glory Road and Flightplan available via the CinemaNow.com website. Disney is also expected to announce that it will provide future films for online downloading as they are released on DVD. The films will be priced at about $20.00. Older titles are expected to be priced at about $10.00. After being downloaded, the movies can be copied on up to three more devices, including handheld devices that use Microsoft's Windows Media Player. They can not be burned to DVDs or uploaded to Apple's Macintosh computers or iPods; however, Disney's deal with CinemaNow is reportedly non-exclusive, and analysts observed that Disney was the first studio to provide TV shows for downloading from Apple's iTunes Music Store.

So explain to me who would do this. You can go out and buy a DVD for $15-$18. You can watch it forever, lend it to your friends and use it as a coaster. Or. . .you can download it for $20.00. To save money, you can download older movies for $10 or buy them in the 2 for $11 rack at Target.

Did Disney hire the people who convinced us to buy water????
