How to watch Disney’s live-action ‘Mulan’ movie on an Amazon Fire TV or Firestick

Disney’s new live-action adaptation of Mulan is being made available today through Disney+ but, unfortunately, you won’t be able to simply load up the app and pay for the movie with just a few remote clicks, presumably, due to a disagreement between Amazon and Disney regarding revenue share. Thankfully, the movie isn’t being blocked outright and you can watch on an Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, or Fire TV Edition device as long as you pay for it elsewhere first. To start, you first need a Disney+ subscription which costs $6.99/month and does not currently offer any free trials. Once you’re a subscriber, log in here through a phone or computer and pay the $29.99 for Premiere Access to Mulan. Then you’ll be able to load up the Disney+ app on your Fire TV device and watch it all you want. Note that you are not paying $29.99 to own the movie, like you would if purchasing a digital movie through Amazon Video, Vudu, or iTunes. You are just paying to have access to it before it becomes available to all Disney+ subscribers on December 4th. This means that even if you pay $29.99 for Mulan, you’ll lose access to it if you end your Disney+ subscription.

Update

Amazon and Disney+ have reached an agreement and Premiere Access to Mulan is now available to purchase directly within the Disney+ app on Fire TV devices.

Amazon rumored to join new digital media locker service with Disney, VUDU, Google Play, Apple iTunes, and others

Disney is rumored to be expanding their Disney Movies Anywhere digital locker service to include movies from other studios such as 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, and Warner Bros. The service, which is said to be called “Movies Anywhere” and live at moviesanywhere.com, is expected to support Amazon Video, VUDU, Google Play, and Apple iTunes. If it works like the existing Disney Movies Anywhere service, it would mean that buying a movie from a participating studio through any of the major digital stores will result in the movie becoming accessible through all other video services at no additional charge.

Disney brings direct-to-consumer subscription service to UK Fire TVs

Disney has just launched their new DisneyLife app and service on Amazon Fire TVs in the UK. The service allows UK residents to pay £4.99 per month for unlimited access to Disney movies and TV shows. The service also comes with live Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior streaming on mobile devices, but unfortunately, live streaming is not supported in the Fire TV app. Oddly enough, the app is only available on Fire TV boxes and not on the Fire TV Stick. DisneyLife is not yet available in the US.

Amazon joins Disney Movies Anywhere cloud service

disney-movies-anywhere-header

Amazon has now linked up with Disney Movies Anywhere, the cloud-based digital movie service from Disney. This means that, if you connect your Amazon account with your Disney Movies Anywhere account, purchasing Disney movies on one video service will make the movie available on the other service for free. Launched earlier this year, Disney Movies Anywhere is Disney’s effort to unify the digital purchases of their content. Prior to today, they already work with Apple’s iTunes, Google’s Play, and Walmart’s Vudu service. Today they’ve added not only Amazon, but also Microsoft. Purchasing a Disney movie, which includes Marvel movies like The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, from any of these services will unlock the movie across all platforms and apps.
