Walt Disney Studios launched Disney Movies Anywhere, a new online service and companion iOS app that allows you to buy Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movies and watch them across multiple devices. The service has a catalog of over 420 films, with individual movies costing $19.99 each.

disney-movies-anywhere
Powered by Disney's Keychest video-on-demand service, the Disney Movies Anywhere app lets customers browse or search through Disney's vast mobile library and then purchase titles for playback from within the app. The app streams the movie to an iOS device, with an option to download content for offline viewing.

Disney Movies Anywhere will be popular among families, and Disney has added parental controls to the app. Parents using the app on multiple devices can restrict viewing on a per device basis, allowing a parent to access the full catalog on their personal iPad and only G-rated movies on a child's iPod touch.

Apple users can link their iTunes account to the Disney Movies Anywhere app and sync eligible films with their iTunes library. In a launch promotion, Disney is offering Pixar’s The Incredibles for free to customers who enable this iTunes integration.

Disney Movies Anywhere is available for free from the iOS App Store. [Direct Link]

Another plus to this linking: Content previously removed in iTunes due to going back to the "Disney Vault" such as the Lion King is now accessible again. Nice!

The iTunes integration is an excellent feature. Now we can watch movies when we're not on wifi. Can't do that with iTunes.

Sure you can....you can download the same way you can in the Disney App.

Most HD movies on iTunes come down in price. Start at $17.99 or $19.99 to eventually become $14.99 or $9.99.

Children's animation movies go on sale but rarely stay low. Toy Story movies, and virtually all major releases from Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks have stayed at $19.99. New sets of parents are always buying these movies. When we were robbed last year, one thing they made sure to steal was out archive collection of DVDs. They left most of the movies, but took all animation and TV series.
