DisneyLife Streaming Service Offers Movies, TV, Music, Books

Disney has launched its subscription-based streaming service, DisneyLife — which offers Disney movies, television shows, music, audiobooks and e-books — in the United Kingdom (with plans to expand to other European markets). Families can stream to their mobile devices or TV sets via Apple’s AirPlay or Google Chromecast. According to TechCrunch, “Disney is rethinking how it manages the digital rights to its extensive library, which today includes not only the Disney brand itself, but also Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.” While much of Disney’s library is presently tied up in deals domestically, the company “has not ruled out bringing similar streaming services to the U.S. in the future.”
