Movies Anywhere, an all-new service by Walt Disney Studios along with Warner Bros. Entertainment, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film, and Universal Pictures have been launched in U.S. today. Users will be able to enjoy movies all in one place. The app will help its users link Google Play, Amazon Video, iTunes, and Vudu accounts to Movies Anywhere.
The new service was earlier called Disney (includes Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm) Movies Anywhere and supported only Disney films. The new app is a free service and by using its app and website, consumers can access all their eligible movies by connecting their Movies Anywhere account with their participating digital retailer accounts.
The announcement of this new service was hinted via a tweet made from official Spider-Man twitter account before the official press release. Readers can check it out below.
The service will be available on Android, iOS, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire devices, Chromecast, Roku, and web browsers. It can be compared to UltraViolet, but a lot better.
“Movies Anywhere is a massive step forward for the consumer digital media experience, bringing the incredible film libraries of five studios together in a virtual one-stop movie-watching shop,” said Karin Gilford, General Manager, Movies Anywhere, who leads an independent, dedicated cross-functional team of product, technology, marketing and other professionals.
Talking about the advantages of using the new free service, Gilford added, “Movies Anywhere means that consumers never have to remember where they purchased a film or which device they can watch it on, because all of their eligible movies will be centralized within their Movies Anywhere library and available across platforms through the Movie Anywhere app and website and also available at their connected digital retailers. And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless.”
The new service will initially feature over 7,300 digital movies, fresh previews and film extras from various movies of Walt Disney, Bros. Entertainment, Sony Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Pictures. Movies Anywhere is now giving its new users a limited-time offer to receive up to five digital movies.
Visit Movies Anywhere, sign up and try yourself once it goes live, and that will happen soon.
