Disney, Google Play bring Disney to Android devices in US
MUMBAI: Walt Disney Studios and Google Play have announced a partnership enabling Android users in the US to enjoy their Disney, Pixar and Marvel digital movie collection across devices through Disney Movies Anywhere.
Disney Movies Anywhere is a family-friendly digital destination that makes it simple for consumers to manage and enjoy their digital collection of Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies in one place, at home and on the go.
The integration with Google Play means that it’s easier than ever for consumers to buy the films they love and then enjoy them through the free Disney Movies Anywhere app and website, as well as everywhere Google Play Movies is available. All they need to do is just download the Disney Movies Anywhere app and connect to their Google account.
Disney Studio in-home and digital distribution, Disney-ABC content distribution president Janice Marinelli said, “We are very excited to announce Google Play as our newest partner for Disney Movies Anywhere. We set out to create an exceptional Disney experience that made owning digital movies easy and fun, and with Google Play now on board following our successful launch in February, we are able to deliver unprecedented availability and ease for consumers across a broad range of mobile devices.”
Google Play Movies partnerships head Jonathan Zepp said, “We want to make it easy for movie fans to enjoy all of their past and future digital purchases across all of their devices. Our partnership with Disney now gives Google Play users the ability to conveniently watch all of their Disney, Marvel and Pixar digital movies that have been purchased from any Disney Movies Anywhere participating retailer”.
Through Disney Movies Anywhere, consumers can explore Disney’s library of over 400 active digital titles from Disney, Pixar, and Marvel; preview upcoming offerings and enjoy hours of free new and exclusive short-form content; and discover curated content based on their individual preferences. In addition to browsing titles available for purchase, consumers can redeem digital copy codes found in Disney, Pixar, and Marvel Blu-rays and DVDs directly in Disney Movies Anywhere, as well as earn Disney Movie Rewards points for digital purchases.
For a limited time, Disney Movies Anywhere users who connect a new participating retailer account will receive a free digital copy of Disney’s animated film ‘Wreck-It Ralph’.
