Disney considering online movie rental service

It was not much more than a day ago I was pondering why Disney hasn’t made a stronger entry into online media with its huge and popular library of movies, tv shows, and other properties. I must have been channeling Bob Iger, because today in his speech to Deutsche Bank he said The Walt Disney Company was considering just that.

Of course, Iger wants a subscription service and I think it should be something more akin to Hulu (paid for by advertising). He’s the big cheese, so you can guess what we’ll get.

More from Reuters and FanBoy over at LaughingPlace.com has some good coverage of Iger’s talk in general.
