WASHINGTON, September 8, 2015 (UPI) — Disney’s cloud-based digital movie service, Disney Movies Anywhere, has expanded to include support from Amazon and Microsoft.

As of Tuesday, the app — which has been more suitably described as a “locker” for already-purchased flicks — will make exclusive Disney films available through other services and devices associated with Amazon Video and Microsoft Movies & TV. The service will also be expanded to Roku and Android TV Sept. 15.

Unlocked films — or movies purchased online or redeemed via a digital copy feature — are now available to stream through these services, as well as Google Play and Vudu. Any Disney movie purchased through one site makes it available on the others, thus streamlining DMA’s accessibility.

The expansion occurs on the same day Avengers: Age of Ultron becomes available for digital download.

Disney Movies Anywhere, powered primarily by iTunes, made its debut in 2014 alongside Frozen‘s digital release. Use of the app was previously available only through iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch before expanding to Apple TV’s AirPlay and Chromecast.

The DMA app is now available for download for Xbox 360, Amazon Fire tablets, Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. Amazon Video apps already integrated into certain televisions will also support Disney’s latest addition.

The digital release of Disney’s live-action Cinderella coincides with Sept. 15’s DMA debut with Roku and Android TV.
