Five Hollywood Studios On Board For Movies Anywhere Service

12 October 2017

Starting Wednesday night, for the first time in the history of "owning" digital movies, there's a place where you can store and access almost all of your digital movie purchases from Disney, Warner Bros., Fox, Sony and Universal Pictures. This means that both Disney Movies Anywhere and the UltraViolet platforms are still separate, but the latter is now running on the same sort of technology. Today, Disney has partnered with additional movie houses (Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal and Warner Bros.) to launch a broader version of this service called simply, Movies Anywhere. Featuring films from Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios (encompassing Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros.

In recent years, Disney has offered its service while the five other major studios-Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal and Warners-supported UltraViolet, a similarly conceived service developed by Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) consortium, which included the aforementioned studios, sans Disney. Because this is a cross-platform solution, movies previously purchased on the iTunes Store will now be available to users on Android devices, and iOS users will be able to watch Disney movies they've purchased from the Google Play Store.

Buying movies through different services just got a lot less complicated thanks to a new "Movies Anywhere" initiative that combines your splintered film library. "And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless".

To celebrate this, Google is offering 5 movies to those who link two or more accounts (Disney, iTunes, Google, etc.) to Movies Anywhere. It's also stepping out with the support of digital retailers Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu.

That brings together a combined library of more than 7,300 films. Participating digital retailers at launch are Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu. Isn't this an item about the new "Disney Movies Anywhere?".

To get started, you'll need the Movies Anywhere app, then you can begin to connect all of your accounts. Consumers can also redeem digital copy codes found in eligible Blu-ray and DVD disc packages from participating studios and enjoy them through Movies Anywhere.
