If you’re enrolled in AT&T’s U-verse service and subscribe to Disney Channel, Disney XD or Disney Junior, you now can watch those programs online or on mobile devices while on the go.
According to a release from AT&T on Monday, U-Verse subscribers of the Disney programming channels can watch both live network streams and on-demand programming, too. Users simply use their AT&T U-verse email and passwords to log on to get the content.
For those who want to view the content on their computers, they can go to WATCHDisneyChannel.com, WATCHDisneyXD.com and/or WATCHDisneyJunior.com to see the live network stream or get on-demand shows such as episodes of “Shake It Up,” “Good Luck Charlie,” “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Phineas and Ferb,” and “Jake and the Never Land Pirates.”
For mobile-device users, the content is being made available to subscribers who use iOS, Android, Xbox and Kindle Fire devices. The sign-up for content is similar, and the same content and features should be available. Users will have to download so-called WATCH apps to use with their mobile devices, and the apps are free.
According to the AT&T release, programming content will be coming to AT&T's uverse.com and U-verse apps in the future, too.
AT&T’s U-verse isn’t the only provider to offer the Disney WATCH apps. Other providers include Comcast, Cox Communications and others across the nation. But big television providers who don’t yet offer the “TV anywhere” line-up of Disney programming include DirecTV, Dish Network and Time Warner Cable.
On Monday, Variety reported that Verizon FiOS TV subscribers will get access to Disney’s WATCH apps soon, though the report did not state when.
In March, AT&T debuted a similar service for ESPN.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
