Disney CEO Bob Iger told a conference audience yesterday that the company is “is considering creating a subscription-based online movie and TV rental service from the company’s huge video library,” reports Deadline Hollywood’s Nikki Finke.

Nikki says “an online Disney video club” will mail out DVDs and let viewers download and stream them too.
