5 million movies is pretty substantial and it doesn’t hurt when Steve is on the Disney boad!

He also wanted to point out that some of the agreements were made “before the purchase of Pixar” to assure investors that Apple CEO Steve Jobs (who is on the board of directors) has not influenced any decision on content distribution.(of course not)
