Disney Media Distribution EMEA and FUSO Ecosystem are launching a Disney-branded S-VOD service in Hungary: Disney Movies on Demand.

The service will offer Disney’s classic movies alongside live action titles on the streaming service. Disney Movies on Demand will launch on fuso® on October 25, 2013.

fuso’s Disney Movies on Demand package will be the first branded subscription based SVOD service for Disney in Hungary and also the first in Central and Eastern Europe. It contains movies that subscribers won’t find in any other Hungarian SVOD offer.

Csaba Lazar, president of Fuso Ecosystem said “Disney is one of the world’s most renowned studios and I am confident fuso’s subscribers will be delighted about the content, which will be available on the fuso premium service, launching this autumn. The Disney library is the world’s most famous and most watched quality family entertainment that parents absolutely trust , whether it is evergreen animations of the 1960’s, modern classics and even recent movie titles. We feel passionate about this relationship and with the launch of Disney Movies on Demand. We are very excited to be the first Eastern-European country to launch such a SVOD service!”

Rory Buckley, GM, Central and Eastern Europe, Disney Media Distribution, EMEA commented in a statement: “It’s great news that Hungarian families will have the chance to enjoy Disney’s most loved and highest grossing movies as part of fuso’s service and library. We always aim to offer our consumers the option to enjoy our magical content when, where and how they want to.”

The fuso platform is available on major smart TV manufacturer’s products including Sony, LG and Samsung, and selected Android tablets and iOS devices. The number of the fuso-supported devices continues to grow radically and the service will soon be available on Xbox One and Sony PS4, giving Hungarian subscribers immediate access to the full range of movies and TV shows across a wide spectrum of devices.
