Is it weird that reading this news actually brought a tear to my eye? No, not because I am such a Disney or Marvel fan that I couldn't live without their content being available to stream at my convenience.

No... I just honestly think it's truly beautiful to see companies bring elements of what I always conceived would be part of "the future" into my actual (non-imaginary) life. I think this deal could perhaps finally solidify the Internet as being the mainstream medium of digital content delivery.

Don't worry, I'm not forgetting about iTunes. But this is DISNEY. Maybe I'm just biased because I was one of those 90s kids (not really so long ago!) with shelves full of Disney VHS's. Perhaps it's a strange trigger; but the breakneck speed of our innovative times has finally hit me.
