Starting today fans of reality hit “Dancing with the Stars” have even greater access to their favorite show, from the first cha-cha to the final waltz. ABC Radio has launched “Dancing with the Stars” Radio, giving listeners an interactive audio experience and unlimited access to the dance floor, whenever and wherever. Season 15 “Dancing with the Stars: All Stars” premieres tonight on the ABC television network.

“We’re adding a new dimension to the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ experience by offering on demand, digital audio content that compliments the viewing experience and increases engagement between the audience and the cast,” said Steve Jones, Vice President and General Manager of ABC News Radio. “When television programming stops, fans can hear highlights, interviews and behind-the-scenes conversation that the camera cannot always capture.”

‘Disney Connected Learning’ to Advise Parents of Children’s Educational Progress

It’s not a new concept at the core, but Disney Interactive (NYSE:DIS) plans on launching a new platform dubbed ‘Disney Connected Learning’ in late 2012/2013 which will allow parents to actively monitor their child’s performance in learning-related activities. What makes this particular implementation unique is that it will run under Apple iOS and Amazon Kindle devices, along with Facebook and other platforms, and encompass more than thirty separate games throughout the year, featuring familiar Disney characters as they educate players via Disney’s Learning System. In addition, an API will be exposed that will allow third party developers to integrate Disney’s K-5 curriculum which was developed in partnership with Stanford University and the University of Georgia. The native and third party apps will allow to progressively test skills with the child and report back to a separate parent-specific app that will allow feedback on the child’s progress.

‘Disney Studio All Access’ Moniker Officially Dropped from Disney’s Upcoming Movie Cloud

Disney Movies AnywhereStill attempting to keep the new name for its movie cloud a secret, Walt Disney Studios has officially stopped promoting the service which allows consumers to play back movies across all devices as being called ‘Disney Studio All Access’ (DSAA). The DSAA teaser site (dsaa.com) now points to http://disney.go.com/movies-rewards-more which features a new, abbreviated version of the teaser video featuring the song ‘Everything At Once’ by Lenka. The new video makes no reference to ‘Disney Studio All Access,’ nor the replacement name we’ve been reporting of ‘Disney Movies Anywhere.’ Instead the video promises simply ‘movies, extras, rewards and much, much more’ and advises the viewer to visit MoviesRewardsMore.com which is owned by Disney but is not yet operational despite the video being on a well known page.

REPORT: Disney Suffers Major Internet Outage Friday Morning

For more than half an hour earlier this morning, the internet arm of The Walt Disney Company suffered a major outage, affecting access to all of its internally run sites, across the board from ESPN to Disney Parks and Resorts to Disney Store and potentially much more.

Visitors attempting to reach the sites, most of which are actually subhosts off of Disney’s GO.COM, were greeted with delays while their browsers attempted to communicate with the websites which were unresponsive, eventually timing out. The only responding server appeared to be that of DisneyStore.com, but it would return just a line of text resembling an md5 hash.
