Movies Anywhere Combines Movie Libraries From iTunes, Amazon, Google Play And More

Using the free Movies Anywhere app and website, consumers can access all their eligible movies by connecting their Movies Anywhere account with their participating digital retailer accounts.

Movie lovers now have a new home for their favorite digital movies as Movies Anywhere launches in the US today with an unprecedented five Hollywood studios and four major digital retailers on board. There's no subscription fee to use the services, which is just as well seeing as you'll already have paid for the movies.

Movies Anywhere is launching first in the U.S., and all movies purchased from Disney, Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros. will be available to watch on Google Play.

Google has launched support for Movies Anywhere, Disney's revamped online video service which aggregates movies from Google Play, Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu. A press release announcing the launch said a goal is a simple, seamless digital entertainment experience across platforms.

Only eligible films will be available in the app, such as anything from Disney's own catalog, which also includes everything from Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm, plus movies from four more studios. "And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless". Disney didn't share exactly why the company pulled support for Microsoft Movies & TV.

Five Hollywood film studios have joined together to offer a new service created to make it easier for consumers to collect digital movies that they can watch at home or on mobile devices, the studios said in a statement on Wednesday.

That brings together a combined library of more than 7,300 films.

In celebration of this exciting new digital entertainment destination, Movies Anywhere is welcoming new users with a limited-time offer to receive up to five digital movies.

Movies Anywhere is only available for signup in the United States.

It is also worth noting that, in an effort to entice people to join the service, you can get up to five free movies simply by signing up: Ghostbusters and Ice Age will be made available once you link to a digital retailer, and adding a second retailer unlocks Big Hero 6, Jason Bourne and The Lego Movie.
