The Pea is totally addicted to the Disney Channel. Not a day goes by that she doesn't watch an episode of her favorite shows "Good Luck Charlie", "Ant Farm", "Jessie" or "Shake It Up" (and on days when I'm not watching her back, she'll sneak in all four!). They're all good, wholesome shows so I don't mind her watching (and I have to admit, I like Good Luck Charlie and Ant Farm too).
She was really bummed at the prospect of going without her Disney Channel fix for a whole month while we're in the UK, but now that the Disney/ABC Television Group has launched their new app, WATCHDisneyChannel, she won't have to. Their new app lets you watch the most popular Disney Channel shows on your iPod,Touch, iPad or iPhone, so you can watch on the go or wherever you have a wifi connection. The Pea couldn't be happier!
The app features a selection of episodes, which change all the time, so you don't get stuck with nothing to watch the day after your Disney Channel marathon. If you're a Comcast customer, you can even access a live stream, and get next day episodes -- which means that The Pea can watch it all on the iPad, which means one less person to fight for the tv remote control! Don't worry, there's plenty of content for non-Comcast users, but the Comcast customers basically get the whole channel online, plus on-demand access to the episodes.
Android phone or tablet users, unfortunately, do not get the app, which is a major bummer, but you can still watch online at www.WATCHDisneyChannel.com. Also, Disney/ABC have 2 more iOS apps for fans of Disney XD and Disney Junior (and both are online at www.WATCHDisneyJunior.com, and www.WATCHDisneyXD.com).
