Disney Suspends Video-On-Demand Trial

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) -- The Walt Disney Co. on Thursday suspended its MovieBeam video-on-demand service in the three cities where it was being tested, citing plans to upgrade the technology behind the system.

Disney launched the service September 2003 in Salt Lake City, Jacksonville, Fla., and Spokane, Wash. It transmits movies over the same broadcast signal used to transmit television programs and stores them on a hard drive in the MovieBeam unit.
