Five Hollywood Studios On Board For Movies Anywhere Service

Today, the idea of merging the various digital movie collections owned by many consumers will become a reality with the expansion of the Disney Movies Anywhere app and website to include nearly every major film studio in Hollywood.

Movie lovers now have a new home for their favorite digital movies as Movies Anywhere launches in the USA today with an unprecedented five Hollywood studios and four major digital retailers on board.

Rumored yesterday, and then teased via social media hours later, the revamped Movies Anywhere app is expected to launch "any time", per a representative for the studios, with details officially released just minutes ago. It's also stepping out with the support of digital retailers Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu.

Movies Anywhere is a new service from various movie studios that will combine your movie library from multiple platforms.

The warped mum reportedly used her 12-year-old son, Jojo, as a human shield to protect herself when she ventured outside. It is thought that Jones' son was also killed while fleeing the city.


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

At launch, 7,300 movies are available in the app, and many more will be added in the coming months, along with previews and exclusive extras. Disney didn't share exactly why the company pulled support for Microsoft Movies & TV.

Customers can use a free app to connect their Movies Anywhere account with participating digital retailers, and Movies Anywhere will sync the library across accounts so users can stream or download on a wide variety of devices (including Amazon Fire, Android and Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS devices and Roku devices). It is similar to Ultraviolet, but will allegedly work more seamlessly and has the capacity of bringing together more studios and online retailers.

Of the majors, Paramount and Lionsgate are still to sign up to Movies Anywhere, but it'll only be a matter of time if it is successfully taken up by millions of users. Activate and connect your account with one of these participating digital retailers - Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes or Vudu - and you'll receive a digital copy of both Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters (2016) and Twentieth Century Fox's Ice Age.
