In addition to offering a one stop shop for watching and downloading Disney movies, this app is the easiest way to get extra features that come with many Disney movies and links to companion iPad apps.
The Disney Movies Anywhere app arrived with the Frozen iTunes release, offering more than just the digital copy of Frozen. Instead of plugging in or sitting down at a computer for extras, users can scroll down to see,
- The Making of Frozen
- A Digital Short
- Let it Go Music Videos
- Deleted scenes
- And more.
The Frozen release date arrived this week on iTunes, nearly a month before DVD. This is the HD version of Frozen, while the SD version arrives in the middle of March.
This includes access to over 400 movies or clips from Disney movies that users can buy through iTunes. Once purchased users can use the Disney app on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch as well as play movies without the app on Apple TV or a computer.
The app connects directly to an iTunes account so that Disney movies show up in the Disney Movies Anywhere app for users to stream or download.
Parents can lock the iPad to this app using a makeshift Kid’s Mode so that a kid can only watch Disney movies, even if the parent also has other movies on the iPad.
There is an app section with links to Disney Movie apps like Frozen Free Fall and Frozen Storybook Deluxe for Frozen movie fans, as well as many other apps from Disney movies. The Discover section lets users watch popular movie clips and extras from movies throughout Disney’s history.
The Disney Movies Anywhere app allows users to also get a free movie at sign up now. By signing up and connecting to a Disney and iTunes account users get a free download of The Incredibles from iTunes. This is something users can download or stream on any Apple device.
Users also track and earn rewards with Disney Points. The app simplifies claiming a digital copy sold with many Blu-Ray combo packs.
At this point Disney Movies Anywhere app is only available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. We could see a Disney Movies Anywhere Android app in the future.
