Well in time for the holidays, Disney is now partnering with Google to bring its Disney Movies Anywhere service to Android devices, so users can enjoy their titles on phones and tablets.
Users who have previously purchased Disney movies online from Disney Movies Anywhere, via the Disney Movies Anywhere app for iOS, iTunes, or even physical Disney discs with a digital copy coupon, can now link their Google account to find the titles they’ve bought in Google Play and stream or download them onto their Android devices using Google Play Movies & TV.
In addition, a native Disney Movies Anywhere app is coming to Android to do pretty much the same thing, but with added features like Chromecast support to beam movies to your TV (with the Chromecast dongle), chapter search and exclusive content.
The launch of this service on Android follows the Disney Movies Anywhere iOS app that arrived in the iTunes App Store earlier this year, and should help Disney cover most bases when it comes to delivering its collectible content across the majority of mobile devices.
