Disney's 'Movies Anywhere' Service Now Allowing Users to View Films on iOS or Android

Users of Disney's Movies Anywhere service will now be able to access their movies between iOS and Android as a part of an agreement between Apple and Google, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The company launched its Movies Anywhere app on iOS in February, which allowed users purchase movies or link their iTunes account to sync eligible films to watch on all of their iOS devices. Now, the Movies Anywhere app is available on Android, as users will be able to purchase movies on the service and view any eligible film bought from the iTunes Store or Google Play on their iOS or Android devices. Disney is also allowing users to redeem codes from DVDs and Blu-ray Discs on the Movies Anywhere website.

According to the report, both Apple and Google will pay Disney a wholesale rate for each copy of a film that they sell. Disney Movies Anywhere is currently offering a free digital copy of Wreck-It Ralph with a newly connected account, and currently offers a library of over 450 titles to choose from.

Disney Movies Anywhere is a free app for iOS devices and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

US only :rolleyes:

Like itunes radio. Over a year later and lots of talk, still not in the UK.

Personally don't see all the fuss about Disney anywhere. Just like ultraviolet 3rd party cloud lockers are a pain, temperamental and buggy.

When is itunes finally going to release iTunes Match for movies.

And also if you buy most of your content like movies from iTunes how is this Disney anywhere any different from downloading your purchased movies again?

A nice feature for sure but those with limited data, streaming is basically a short-lived feature.

This is GREAT for the Consumer!!

Man, I wish I waited until now. I got the Incredibles FREE...it could have been Wreck-It Ralph.


Connect a Google Play account and you will also get Wreck-It Ralph.

This will be a lifesaver since the only thing that calms my girls down on long trips is the music from Frozen. The extra have a specific section just for the songs.
