Disney Exploring VOD in Europe

5 Sep, 2005 By: Erik Gruenwedel

The Walt Disney Co. has reportedly joined forces with a Swiss software company to develop and market stand-alone video-on-demand set top and devices for digital television.

The devices, which would include digital recording capabilities, are earmarked for satellite, cable, and broadcast TV in Europe only, according to a Reuters report.

About a year ago, Disney halted expansion of MovieBeam, the TiVo-like video-on-demand (VOD) subscription service launched in 2003 in Salt Lake City; Spokane, Wash.; and Jacksonville, Fla.
