Disney’s bold online movie streaming gamble

In a significant step for movies online, Walt Disney has announced plans stream full-length movies from its vast catalogue online this summer, including selections from the Wonderful World of Disney.
Films will first be broadcast on ABC in the US as part of the network’s weekly Wonderful World of Disney presentation on Saturday nights this summer. They will then be made available for free streaming on Disney.com for the week following TV broadcast.
“Streaming full-length films on Disney.com takes our commitment to delivering world-class online entertainment to the next level,” said Paul Yanover, executive vice president and managing director, Disney Online. “This is a wonderful partnership with ABC, and just another example of how Disney’s unmatched, high-quality content can be leveraged on multiple platforms.”
The series kicks off with Pixar classic, Finding Nemo, which is currently available until June 13; it will be followed by the screening of Monsters Inc. between June 16-20.
