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

Back in February, Apple and Disney teamed up on a new app called Movies Anywhere that allowed iOS users to access their library of purchased movies-whether bought on the iTunes Store, DVD, or other media (with the appropriate redemption code in the box).

The goal here is simple, and a unified movie collection is great for consumers. Entertainment, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film, and Universal Pictures have been launched in USA today.

Namely, the 20th Century Fox-distributed "Ice Age" animation, Sony's divisive 2016 "Ghostbusters" reboot, Walt Disney's 2014 Oscar victor "Big Hero 6", Universal's 2016 "Jason Bourne", and the beloved "Lego Movie" from Warner Bros. 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.

As of this writing, the Movies Anywhere site is still in a holding pattern, featuring an animation and the hashtag #AnywhereIsComing. Movies Anywhere now offers support for devices including Amazon Fire; Android devices and Android TV; Apple TV; Chromecast; Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; and Roku.

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.

The new Movies Anywhere is a Disney-owned entity that will operate with input from an advisory committee made up of members from each of the participating studios. It's bringing it together all in one place. There's a server difficulties message appearing on the Disney Movies Anywhere website right now too, so it's possible that just too many people are currently looking into this. Consequently, the Keychest-powered system that Disney has been using since 2014 will now unlock movies from the said studios which amount to over 7300 titles along with previews and film extras from the studios behind such hits as Wonder Woman, Beauty and the Beast, Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes and The Fate of the Furious.
