Comcast and Disney-ABC Domestic Television have launched a new subscription VOD service called Disney Family Movies.
Comcast customers can access the service for $5.99 a month, which gets them 10 classic Disney movies for unlimited viewing. New movies would be added weekly, and movies available during the initial launch include George of the Jungle, The Parent Trap, Treasure Planet and Eloise at the Plaza.
“… It’s such a compelling family entertainment value, my daughters offered to take it out of their allowance,” said Derek Harrar, SVP and GM of video services for Comcast. “Kids’ and family programming continues to be one of our top on demand categories, and we are thrilled to continue delivering the best quality content with Disney.”
Comcast has already signed up MGM for its own action movie and TV show VOD channel, Impact, and Lionsgate and Sony Pictures Television have a horror and thriller VOD channel, FEARnet, also with Comcast.
