Disney brings together its TV apps into one hub

DisneyNowDisney has consolidated its TV apps, so now kids can enjoy their favourite Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior shows all in one place.

DisneyNow brings the three previously separate ‘Watch’ apps – which have been downloaded more than 40m times since 2012 – together to create a hub for all of Disney’s on-demand programming, as well as live streaming.

“The decision to consolidate our Disney Channel Watch apps into the new DisneyNow app was driven by what kids told us they want in a video experience,” said Kimberly Hicks, VP of digital media at Disney Channels. “The upgraded app enables us to showcase great stories and characters, and bring the magic of Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior to their daily lives.”

The home to TV series, TV movies and other content from the Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior and Radio Disney is available now on iOS, tvOS, Android/Kindle and Roku. Fire TV, Android TV and the Web will receive the app in 2018.
