Disney is working with National Datacast, a subsidiary of PBS, to procure digital ATSC data bits from PBS Member stations. And of course ABC also has leverage with it's network affiliates and O&Os to continue MovieBeam on ATSC. MovieBeam has a plan to stay in business post-NTSC. We shall see if it ever makes economic sense to do so.

Look this Disney's press release:



September 28, 2006 MovieBeam Movies-On-Demand Service Now Available in Cincinnati and Kansas City.//

The MovieBeam movies-on-demand service is now available in 31 major metropolitan areas across the U.S., reaching more than 41 million households.


Sounds very strange, isn't?

Moviebeam operates in dNTSC and "the big switch" knocks the doors...
