I found this bit of news released on Friday quite interesting:

[With DVD shelf space at retailers becoming increasingly crowded, Disney (NYSE: DIS - News) CEO Bob Iger hopes to move some of its TV shows from the past 50 years to its website, Bloomberg reported. Iger's remarks were made during the Q&A portion of Disney's annual shareholder meeting Thursday in Albuquerque. His thoughts were conceptual in nature and didn't appear to reflect a clear plan for how Disney would distribute its TV programs. So while Iger presented no time-frame on when a vintage TV web initiative would be launched, or what shows would be selected, the choice of revenue model is fairly clear-cut: "In the near future, you'll see more of that product available on Disney.com, either for free or through some sort of subscription."]
