Dish and Disney have reached a distribution deal that will allow subscribers to watch Disney content on their computers and mobile devices.

Using apps found in Apple's App Store, Google Play, the Amazon Appstore and the Windows store, viewers will be able to watch live programming from ABC Family, Disney Channel and Disney XD, as well as live network streams of ABC, which are currently available in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Fresno, Philadelphia and Raleigh-Durham.

The press release follows below.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. & BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the weeks immediately following the announcement of their groundbreaking, multi-year distribution deal, DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ:DISH) and The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) today announced the availability of WATCH ABC, WATCH ABC Family, WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney XD and WatchESPN, enabling DISH’s 14 million video subscribers to access live and on-demand news, entertainment and sports programming on computers, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles and connected devices.

How nice. For those who don't have Windows Phone, I mean. For those of us who do, well I guess we're just SOL.

I have never watched live tv on a phone, so how does this work? If I have a android laying around, do I need to download every app for each channel and log in to each different app? Am I missing something here? And none of this works on our Windows phones?

Funny, I just emailed dish support last week asking where the dish anywhere app for windows phone/Win 8/WinRT.

I've never seen an article from this Jerry......maybe he posted in the wrong forum accidentally because he has to know we don't have dish or DirectTV apps on WP.

The article is correct. It says "Windows store" not "windows phone store". Who knows, with build 2014 tomorrow we might see an app or two announced.

The WATCH ESPN and ABC apps are in the Windows 8 store.  Everybody who has been here more than once knows that this site, just like the other Mobile Nations, is about more than phones.  And I don't know about ABC, but the ESPN stuff is available on the web, no app required.  I don't know if it works with IE on WP though.

 

Too bad Dish didn't offer this while my football and basketball teams were on.  Oh well, better late than never.

 

I want a Sing app for my Hopper2.....WTF dish, come on release one ! (I want more than just these channels, I want everything my hopper offers)
