Disney expands movie app to include Android users

NEW YORK — The Walt Disney Co. is expanding its digital movies app that allows fans to watch movie purchases across devices to Android’s Google Play.

In February, the service, called Disney Movies Anywhere, launched in the Apple Store for iOS devices. Now registered users can download the service for either operating system for free and play movies they’ve purchased on both.

Disney, Pixar and Marvel movies that users have purchased can be watched via the app. The launch corresponds with the release of “Maleficent” and Disney’s animated “Planes: Fire & Rescue” out Tuesday on Blu-ray and digital download. About 450 movies are available to work with the service.

The app is built on The Walt Disney Co.’s KeyChest technology, which stores and records consumers’ purchases of digital movies on distant servers.

KeyChest is similar to UltraViolet, a digital locker system supported by a wider range of studios such as Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Universal, Sony and Paramount.
