WATCH Disney iOS apps updated with AirPlay and Chromecast streaming support

Watch-Disney-ChannelDisney’s popular apps iOS apps including WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney Junior, and WATCH Disney X D have all been updated today with support for AirPlay and Chromecast streaming.

    Good thing it says WATCH at the top of all those AppleTV app icons. I wouldn’t have known what I was supposed to do with them otherwise.

    OK…I’m confused. As someone who’s ready to dump the dish and get Chromecast, I need to be able to stream Disney Jr. HOWEVER…when I dl the Disney Jr app, it wants to know who my provider is to be able to watch the programs. What good is streaming if I cant access the programs?
