Disney Films Come to M-Go’s Digital Video Store

Mouse House cuts deal with joint venture from DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor for titles including 'Monsters University,' 'Marvel's The Avengers'

M-Go, a joint venture of DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor, announced a content-licensing agreement with The Walt Disney Studios that brings a selection of films from the Mouse House to the digital-video service including “Monsters University” and “Marvel’s The Avengers.”

Under the deal, M-Go has rights to offer users access to a subset of the Mouse House’s films as they become available, including from Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Marvel Studios and DreamWorks Studios. M-Go offers movies and TV shows for rental or purchase, competing with Apple’s iTunes and Amazon Video.

However, Disney’s movies on M-Go will not be available through UltraViolet, the cloud-based homevideo system that lets consumers access their purchased titles across multiple services. Disney is the lone major studio that is not participating in UltraViolet.

Disney new releases available for streaming or download on M-Go include “Marvel’s Iron Man 3,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Monsters University” and “Planes,” while library titles include “Finding Nemo” and the “Toy Story” trilogy. The content licensing agreement also includes holiday-themed titles such as “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Mickey’s Christmas Carol.”

Disney expands M-Go’s existing licensing deals with studios including 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Warner Bros. and DreamWorks Animation.

Launched about a year ago, M-Go has a deal to be the default movie and TV store partner on new Roku boxes, and the company recently launched M-Go To Go, an iPad app that lets users watch movies offline.

“Securing this important partnership to get consumers access to coveted Disney content in combination with the launch of M-Go To Go is our company’s latest proof point in delivering on M-Go’s mission to get people to the entertainment content they love as quickly and easily as possible on the devices they choose,” M-Go CEO John Batter said in a statement.
