Disney’s Iger “Open” To Streaming Entire Cable Channels Online

TVWeek’s Jon Lafayette covering the NCTA’s Cable Show this week, reports Disney CEO Bob Iger is “open to exploring” running entire cable networks online users are subscribers.

“With authentication in place, streaming full networks online would be an interesting and potentially compelling feature for consumers,” said Iger. And he says the old cable model, won’t work online: “Preventing people from watching any shows online unless they subscribe to some multichannel service could be viewed as both anti-consumer and anti-technology and would be something we would find difficult to embrace.”
