Netflix has to look over their shoulder since losing Sony and Starz, respectively, and now Disney is semi-quietly preparing to deliver a hard right hook. Named Disney Studios All Access or DSAA, the much-hyped service looks to offer fans access to their films across all mediums and multiple devices, including on-demand streaming, at no additional cost — ever. First teased back at the 2011 Disney D23 Expo, the House of Mouse is gunning for that number one spot with multi-faceted ways to watch your favorite Disney flicks.
With over 5 million digital entries, users can get a Blu-ray, a copy for their iPad, and on-demand streaming with all the behind-the-scenes extras as well. No longer will kids and grown-ups alike have to wait years to reclaim their favorites like Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. Buy it once and you can see it in a whole bunch of different ways. Could this be a trend that other studios will adopt if successful? Only time can tell, as it'll all come down to price point. Netflix instant watch feature still costs $8 bucks and that's a small bit a cheese that still covers a whole lot of popcorn.
A micro website has been created to promote the service for your enjoyment.
