Would you pay to watch 'Hannah Montana' online?

might soon be headed to a laptop near you…at a price. Disney CEO BobIger announced yesterday that the company is developing some kind of Web platform that would charge users for movies, TV shows, and games.

It would be a real game-changer if Disney succeeds wheread-supported sites like Hulu haven’t dared to go — making users pay forthe content on some sort of subscription basis. But knowing Disney’strack record as an entertainment powerhouse, I’d say they couldprobably pull it off if they really try. And while I’m not exactly thetarget demo for Disney Channel shows (my love for Camp Rocknotwithstanding), I can imagine plenty of parents who would gladly forkover a few bucks to give their kids access to their favorite showsonline.

What about you, PopWatchers? Would you subscribe to Disney’s onlineportal, or would you stick with Hulu and YouTube to get your kicks forfree?
