Disney to put classic TV shows online

Disney CEO says classic TV shows will go on Disney.com for a subscription or free with ads.

On the heels of moves by CBS and NBC, The Walt Disney Company is going to put some of its classic TV programming online, according to Bloomberg.

The shows will be accessible on Disney.com, either for free or for a subscription price, Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger told shareholders at the company's annual meeting Thursday.

"Providing physical goods on DVD is tougher and tougher these days because shelf space is limited," Iger said.

Not to mention that people are increasingly expecting to find TV programming online.

Disney offers some ad-supported ABC and the Disney Channel programs online and sells them through Apple's iTunes Store, as well.
