Lady and the Tramp family movie night featuring #MoviesAnywhere and Petcube


We have one of those dogs who loves to watch movies. Petey reacts to dogs, cats, horses, and other animals on TV. As long as they are on the screen, he’s interested. As soon as they are off screen, he walks away. We enjoy family movies, especially when they are about dogs. Here's Petey watching the scene from Lady and the Tramp where the canines are crooning in "jail." 





This is a #sponsored post. 
Lady and the Tramp, a classic family favorite movie, is now available (released February 20th) digitally on Movies Anywhere. To help spread the word about the release of this heartwarming movie, we were given a code to view Lady and the Tramp on Movies Anywhere. I was intrigued to learn that this new movie streaming service allows you to watch movies any time from any location. In addition, we received a #Petcube pet cam, which allows us to view our dogs anytime from anywhere! What a fantastic combination! 

First… the movie.  Step one, we installed the Movies Anywhere app on our Apple TV 4k streaming device. Then we entered the digital code for the movie. And within minutes, we were watching our feature presentation! It was that easy. Petey and Ernest joined us in watching the movie. While Ernest mostly slept, there were many times Petey perked up at the activities on the screen.

Petey watches baby Lady while Ernest rests.
Of course my favorite part is when Lady and Tramp eat spaghetti. Even Ernest checked that out.

Who doesn't love this scene?

We enjoyed the ease of using Movies Anywhere. It’s available to use with amazon, google play, itunes and Vudu. It’s convenient because it keeps all your movies in one place, and you can access them on any device. We watched Lady and the Tramp at home on our television, but could also watch anytime (and anywhere!) on a tablet, Roku, Android, Amazon Fire or whatever.

 Because it works across a number of platforms it allows you to take your digital film library with you no matter what device or operating system you’re using. 
Now on to Petcube. This is an awesome, compact portable pet camera, so we can watch Petey and Ernest from anywhere too! Petcube is interactive and actually allows you to see, talk to and play with your pet. The device was super easy to install. The cube is small and looks attractive anywhere. The two way audio allows you to hear and talk to your pet. We have Petcube Play. This model also has a laser pointer you can use to play with your cat or dog from anywhere. I’m not sure if Petey and Ernest would respond to a laser pointer or not, but it will be fun to try. 



The most impressive part is that the picture quality is amazing.  It features a 1080p HD video and the nightvision works surprisingly well in low and no-light conditions. The lens has a 138 degree wide angle view. I could see my hall and livingroom from just one position.

Our Lady and the Tramp movie night was a great success. Fortunately, the movie ends happily ever after. I recommend both Movies Anywhere and Petcube, which together make it easier for you to watch your movies and your pets anytime anywhere. Ernest and Petey agree. Now they need a nap.

That was a good movie. Now, goodnight.

*FULL DISCLOSURE: We were provided with a code for one movie on Movies Anywhere and a Petcube play in exchange for my honest review. This in no way influenced my opinions. Opinions expressed here are 100% my own.

  1. Wow, I never knew this service existed. Thank you for sharing. I think with the price of cable television, more and more companies will be finding innovative ways to share their products.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jodi. It's okay that you haven't heard of it yet, it's a new service. I think it's a great idea to make it easier and more convenient. And also less expensive!

  2. Cali used to bark at any dog in tv! It's so cute that Petey enjoys watching shows with animals! The streaming service sounds awesome - thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Julie. That's funny that Cali barked at dogs on TV. Did she respond to other animals too? Zeke loves to watch dogs on TV, just like Petey. Ernest doesn't seem to notice.

  3. Can you download movies from Movies Anywhere to watch later? Or do you need an internet connection to watch them?

    Of course, if I had unlimited internet, I think I'd most like to watch Petey and Ernest watching movies. Do they have Babe?

    1. Yes, you can watch later, for instance we have Lady in the Tramp and watched it on our TV, and now we can watch it any other time, on another device. It is my understanding that you don't need an internet connection. Watching Petey and Ernest watching movies might get boring after a while, as I assume they'd fall asleep. haha. We do have Babe but haven't tried it yet, will have to do that. So far Pete's favorite is Westminster Dog Show.

    2. Ooooh, thank you. I'll look into it further. I've been interested in a video source that allows us to download and watch later.

      I hope you love Babe. It's one of our favorites. A reviewer once called it the Citizen Kane of talking animals movies. It is definitely one of the best.

    3. I do love Babe! I love Farmer Hodgett and the scene where he's dancing just melts my heart. What I meant to say is that Petey and Ernest haven't watched Babe yet!
      Good luck with the movie thing, I hope it works out for you.

  4. i love the way your dogs watch tv. i try to get my girls to watch dog shows, and dog agility contests, but they are not interested at all. every now and then something will spark their interest for a few seconds.

    1. Most of my dogs have been that way too. Ernest is that way. I wonder why some dogs notice TV and others don't.

  5. Very cool. I hadn't heard of Movies Anywhere before but will definitely be checking them out now.

    Pet Cube I HAD heard of and reading a review from your definitely helps sway that decision. :)

    PS - Ernest and Petey are just too cute for words.

    1. Thank you for stopping by and for checking out these products. I have tested several various pet cams and I have to say that so far this one is my favorite. It is a great compact size (I have one that distributes treats and its quite bulky) and also the wide angle covers a lot of territory.

  6. Lady and the Tramp is one of my favourites ever. I have never heard of Movies Everywhere before. I'll definitely have to check it out. I travel for work a lot, so this would be SUPER handy!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. You have good taste in movies. Lady and the Tramp is one of my granddaughter's favorites already!

  7. Movies Anywhere is news to me, so thanks for introducing it!
    Pet Cube with that wide angle lens you pointed out is a great feature, covering lot of real estate. I love that you can interact with your dog and pique their interest -- they can enjoy more activity when you're not home =)

    1. Would your dogs respond to the laser pointer? That is a feature I have to try yet. Thanks for your great comments Mary.

  8. Movies Anywhere sounds like it would be a great fit for our mobile lifestyle! We'd much rather watch movies from home so we can be with Ty and Buster, but we hadn't figured out a way to watch new releases. Thanks for the info!

    1. That would be great for you! I hope it works out. The way I understand it's like a movie locker where you can keep movies from anyplace you buy them, and then watch them later on any device. I hope it works. Maybe Lady and the Tramp will be your first one!

  9. I love everything about this! That was one of my favorite movies as a kid! And how cute Petey watching, mine aren't very interested in TV, unless a wolf howls or something. I'll have to look into the Movies everywhere, we are always wanting to watch movies, and new releases would be great.

    1. Petey is my first dog who has been interested in images on the TV. Good luck with the movies, and thanks for stopping by!
