Disney Anywhere Is Go
In a classic “cut-out-the-middle-man” move, Disney launched their own cloud streaming service on Tuesday.
Disney Movies Anywhere will make Disney movies available on iOS devices. It allows users to manage their online purchases but also to store Blu-Rays or DVDs in the cloud. Disney Movies Anywhere will only offer movies released by Walt Disney Studios, including those from Marvel Studios and Pixar Animation Studios.
Disney is the only publisher that doesn’t support Ultraviolet, a similar offering, which the rest of the industry launched in 2012, that has gathered 15 Mn accounts so far.
