Do you want to see the premiere movie for Star Wars Rebels, “Spark of Rebellion” before your friends? Then your best bet is to check out Disney XD’s WATCH Disney XD website and App. Lucasfilm announced today that WATCH Disney XD will be getting a 7 day exclusive window for the premiere from 9:00 p.m. on September 26 until the televised premier on Disney Channel at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, October 3.
As the force grows stronger and Star Wars fans become more eager for the debut of the animated television movie Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion, Disney XD has moved up the debut by three days, to Friday, September 26 for verified users of WATCHDisneyXD.com and the WATCH Disney XD app for smartphones, tablets and connected TVs.
The new date will give verified WATCH Disney XD viewers a seven-day exclusive window to watch Star Wars Rebels before the global television debut Friday, October 3 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT in the U.S.) on Disney Channels around the world, ushering in the series beginning Monday, October 13 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.
WATCH Disney XD is a service that “verified users” can use to watch select Disney XD programming on demand or live.
To be a verified user you need to have a cable or satellite subscription that included the channel and your provider needs to be one of the ones listed in the app or on the website. This is a process that Disney uses across their media platforms both on ESPN and the Disney branded channels.
Further if you are using the Apple app you can use AirPlay with the app and Apple TV or you can cast from your Apple device to Google’s Chromecast connected to your television.
If you are using the website you can either watch it on your computer or if you have the ability I would suggest running an HDMI connection from your computer to your TV.
Personally I tend to use the Watch Disney XD app on my iPad and have had a great experience with the ease of signing in and the quality of the streaming. If it is the first time you are watching “Spark of Rebellion” however I would suggest you find a way to watch it on your television to fully appreciate the show.
I hope this helps answer any questions you may have had about WATCH Disney XD and I hope you enjoy “Spark of Rebellion” as much as I did.
