Official Windows 8 Disney Channel App: WATCH Disney Channel

WATCH Disney Channel is the official Disney Channel app for Windows 8 and 8.1. When you run the app, you will be taken to its main screen where you will be able to access the various tiles of its different shows. When you click on a particular tile, you will be shown the video content of the corresponding show or the category that you clicked on. The app has a large collection of videos which you can watch at your own convenience, and as the app streams the videos from online sources, the app manages to keep its size fairly lightweight at just about 14Mb. The app also allows you to pin certain episodes to the Start Screen by right-clicking on them and selecting the pin option, and it will be pinned.

WATCH Disney Channel is available for free from the Windows App Store.

Main features of WATCH Disney Channel for Windows 8 and 8.1:

When you run the app on your device, the following is the first screen which you will see.

WATCH Disney Channel Main screen

Towards the left side, you will be able to see the previews of its most popular shows, and towards the right, you will be able to see a horizontally scrollable list of tiles of all of its shows. When you click on a particular tile, you will be taken to a screen of associated content which you can see in the screenshot below.

Now, you can go ahead and click on any of the videos that are not marked with the golden key. The videos marked with a golden key require you to login with your cable TV’s username and password, but if you don’t have that, don’t fret as the app still has a lot of content which isn’t locked. Clicking on a tile of a video opens up the video player interface which is the standard deal with all the playback controls. Right-clicking anywhere on the screen pops up the control bars from the top and the bottom of the screen (see screenshot attached below).

From there you can choose to go back to the previous screen (back arrow button at the top left), go to the home page of the app (home button) or choose to watch live TV. Once back in the main screen, you can also scroll to the extreme right of the screen where you will be able to access the complete schedule of programs aired on Disney Channel.
