    Disney is closing Disney Movies Online, it's web movie service. The reason for this is that the site wasn’t keeping up with user demands.

    In an email to users, the company said the site would be closed on the 31st December.

    Visitors to the site were able to buy and rent Disney & Pixar Movies and allowed people who purchased physical discs to stream the movies from the website.

    Unfortunately, the site did not attract many customers and had limited capabilities. Users couldn’t download their digital movies for offline playback, there was no support for connected devices like game consoles, and it only offered movies for streaming on Web browsers.

    Disney did not say if or when a replacement service would be launched.

    Disney just can't seem to get it together for the digital age. Nothing that they do electronically, or web based is without problems, and big problems.

    Their sites are hard to use and very buggy. You can't get support in a reasonable amount of time if you have a problem. It never fails to amaze me that a corporation that large has such a problem with communication.
