Mouse For Rent?


It appears right after it was announced that Fox will begin renting movies from Apple's upcoming rental service through iTunes, that Disney is prepared to go with the service as well.

This isn't surprising since Disney was the first company to sign up for Apple's selling of movies on iTunes. Having Steve Jobs as your biggest single stockholder and a seat on the Board also ads weight to the logic in joining such a band wagon as well...

Lots of newspapers and websites have reported Fox will go into the retail deal with Apple, but none have said Disney would before I read Honor's sight. Later that day I read three other websites that mentioned it. Nice scoop!
