    "I enjoy having this app for my child so they can watch their favorite shows on Disney. It allows you to access shows you'd find from their three major Disney channels such as their Disney XD, Disney Junior and their main Disney channel. All their shows are all in one this one app. Which I think makes it a pretty great tv show app. "
