Disney CEO Roger Iger did a bit of chest thumping today and said that they sold 125,000 movies for about a million dollars at the iTunes store.That’s is good news for him and Disney, but I wonder how much money is being earned by Apple.
With current file sizes, experts in the content delivery business say that it would cost between $1 to $2 to deliver a movie. In other words, the cost of delivering movies could be as much as $250,000, though given Apple’s size, it might get better pricing. Any guesses/estimates on how the pie is being sliced between content owner, content distributor and delivery network provider. It be great help, for future reference as well.
