The Walt Disney Co. has plans to launch a mobile app that will allow Comcast Corp subscribers to watch Disney Channel on the go, sources say.
Disney CEO Robert Iger says the app will be made available as early as next week and will work similar to the company’s WatchESPN service. At first, this app will only be available to Comcast subscribers who will have to be “authenticated” in order to watch Disney Channel on their mobile devices.
Iger also mentioned that the company plans to create other apps that would allow people to watch their other TV properties, like ABC and ABC Family, from their mobile devices. He did not say when we can expect these to be available, however.
