Bob Iger Was The Steve Jobs Of Online Video

Steve Jobs may be getting all the posthumous credit for changing the world as we know it, but in terms of the online video world, Brian Danzis, Vice President-Sales, North America, TidalTV, gives most of the credit to Jobs’ collaborator Bob Iger.

Speaking during a sponsored workshop session at OMMA Video in San Francisco, Danzis says the Walt Disney Co. chief’s decision to put ABC’s programming up on Jobs’ iTunes platform revolutionized the business and was what stimulated the rest of the marketplace to follow.

“He said, ‘I’m not going to be like the music industry,” Danzis recalls.
