The app acts as a streaming service for Disney movies and television series', and also includes access to official soundtracks, digital storybooks and games.
Before the apps launch, Disney movies were widely available on Netflix in Europe and the UK, as they were in the United States. This distribution ceased when DisneyLife launched, with the exception of Marvel Television content.
In June 2018, Legend of the Three Caballeros was released in the Philippines on DisneyLife app for the first time and not in the United Kingdom version. It is presented as the only DisneyLife original series since Disney+ will make new content in 2019.
