Back in February, Apple and Disney teamed up on a new app called Movies Anywhere that allowed iOS users to access their library of purchased movies, whether bought on the iTunes Store, DVD, or other media. Now, Disney has launched the same service for Android users. Movies Anywhere owners will now be able to access their movie library featuring titles from Disney, Pixar, and Marvel from any of their devices.
Disney and Google have teamed up to let you watch Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies on any device via Google Play. “We want to make it easy for movie fans to enjoy all of their past and future digital purchases across all of their devices,” says Google’s head of Google Play Movies partnerships Jonathan Zepp. Disney has some deep roots with Pixar and had originally rolled out the Disney Movies Anywhere initiative with Apple in February. That initiative allowed people to purchase and then sync up Disney movies on iTunes or upload a special code from physical DVD’s and play them on Apple products. Now Disney, Pixar and Marvel fans will be able to pick up any tablet, computer or smartphone regardless if it’s Android or iOS and play the 450 movies offered on any device.
