NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Disney (DIS) and Google (GOOG) have joined forces so you'll now be able to access nearly 400 movies from Disney, Pixar and Marvel on any device which can access Google Play.
The Disney Movies Anywhere streaming service has been available only for Apple (AAPL) platforms, iOS and the iTunes store, since February. The new agreement with Google means that Disney fans will now be able to purchase a movie once and watch it on any Apple, Android or Chrome OS device. That includes Chromebooks, Chromecast dongles and Google's brand new Nexus Player TV box.

Disney shares were off 1.86% to $90.00 and Google shares were losing 0.66% to $551.57 in midday trading in New York.
Google Play's Jonathan Zepp describes the new pact as a good deal for end users. "We want to make it easy for movie fans to enjoy all of their past and future digital purchases across all of their devices," Zepp said, announcing the deal.
New streaming movie releases currently sell for around $20 each in Disney's online store. Fans who already own DVDs and Blu-Ray discs of their favorite Disney titles will also be able to take advantage of the service. If the disk comes with a Digital Copy, you can instantly add it to your online streaming collection.
