Disney’s afternoon action-adventure block Jetix is streaming full-length episodes of its shows on Jetix.tv. Series offered include “Power Rangers: Mystic Force,” “Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!,” “Get Ed” and “W.I.T.C.H.”

“By providing kids with a fluid experience back and forth between the television and the computer, we give them the power of choice and the ability to connect with the entertainment they love no matter what platform they are on,” Disney Channel Worldwide prexy Rich Ross said. 

Both sites feature shortform content such as musicvideos and “bonus” materials for Disney’s original movies.
