Disney and Apple itunes

The Walt Disney Co. reported yesterday that its second quarter profits rose 27%. While Roger Igor, CEO refused to break down a measure of its digital revenue from its websites compared to sale of movies through Apple, the following statistics are worth noting.
1. So far, Disney and Apple iTunes have sold around 23.7 million TV
episodes and 2 million movies.
2. Disney viewers watched nearly 92 million ad-supported TV episodes via website and 91 million shows on website.
3. The rate of movie downloads seems steady at around 9,000 per day.

The success if Walt Disney will strongly encourage other media to work with Apple. It will create a win-win situation for both Apple and Media Content Providers. However, we can assume the competition will be more severe along the media content providers in the future.

It will be pretty interesting to see how Google and Microsoft responses. (Uh....forget about the Real Network....Does someone remember it? )
