Free Television (Free 1): The Pay 1 window is followed by a free television window wherein telecasts are accessible to consumers without charge. This free window may last up to 84 months. Motion pictures are usually sold in the Free 1 window on an ad hoc basis to major networks and basic cable services. For films released theatrically prior to October 1, 2004, the Studio maintained only one output arrangement with the ABC Television Network, covering branded live action and animated product to be broadcast in the Wonderful World of Disney slot. Films released after that date can be sold on an ad hoc basis to other networks besides ABC.
