Google and Disney have announced a new partnership which will allow you to link your movie streaming services cross-platform and in a first is actually really, cross-platform allowing you to watch your Disney Movies on iOS, Android or on the Disney Movies Anywhere site. All you need to do is link your accounts.
The new deal allows you access to the over 400 Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies available in Disney’s KeyChest based digital streaming service. The new partnership allows you to link your Google Play account to your Disney Movies Anywhere account and movies purchased from there will now show up in your ‘My Movies’ section in Google Play Movies.
While Disney Movies Anywhere has both an iOS and Android apps, at this moment the new Android app which launched yesterday is still not available in Australia. So, it’s semi-limited in its usefulness, for now. Though you can’t access the app, you can still sign up for Disney Movies Anywhere, and get access to the launch bonus, a free digital copy of Disney movie Wreck-it Ralph. Once you sign up for Disney Movies Anywhere you will receive a free copy of the movie which shows up under ‘My Movies’ in Google Play Movies.
To get your free copy, head on over to the Disney Movies Anywhere website (You may have to scroll to the right) and Sign-in or Sign-up to the service. Once you’re there, click the banner and then select ‘Link Google Play/iTunes account’, follow the prompts and a banner pops up advising you that Wreck-It Ralph has been added to your library.
We’ve been trying to get access to the APK for the movie and will let you know how we go.
So, who’s Chromecasting Wreck-It Ralph tonight?
