Reason why they should use what already works.

Yet another reason why studios should just provide the content and let the established distribution outlets distribute the content.
Hulu plus, Vudu, Amazon Prime, Itunes. The studios can make some money from those outlets, then they can push it to Netflix and Redbox after a few weeks, and call it a day.
No need to do it themselves.

Disney did use Hulu Plus and I'm not sure how people claim they never knew about this. You hear about it on the radio (pretty much every station has/d these ads), you hear and see it on EVERY Disney/ABC station, including online ads on ESPN in random times of day. Sounds like Disney found a better way to make $$$ then giving it away for free.

There goes it!

Well another reason to illegally go other places.
Not saying I do that but

I would be happy to pay for the access and not have to buy discs to watch.

I want...
any movie.
any time.
any where.

In other words....

"The digital environment is rapidly evolving and Disney Movies Online does not have the flexibility that many users today demand," Disney said in a statement.

You guys want to be able to use it where you want, when you want and we just aren't willing to accommodate our consumers because we are too scared that our profit margins may lower and cause a shareholder revolt.

What about local digital videos?

Do they have those? If so, then are they unplayable without being able to phone home for its stupid DRM?

Instead we'll make no money because people don't want to purchase disks any more and we hamper other streaming services and blame piracy for why we're not making any money. Then we pay for the best laws money can buy to make our customers criminals where getting our content is a more serious crime than murder.
