Movies Anywhere makes your digital movie library available across multiple platforms

The app which allows us to watch our favourite Disney movie collection across our preferable devices anywhere we go, is making connection with four major studios, Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal and Warner Bros. Entertainment; as well as The Walt Disney Studios, which includes films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm. Content from Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, and Vudu can be brought into the Movies Anywhere app, which is great for anyone with a fragmented collection spanning more than one of those services. "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 Movies Anywhere app and website and also available at their connected digital retailers".

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.

It follows in the footsteps of the UltraViolet locker model (which studios abandoned for superior Disney tech) and the previous proprietary Disney Movies Anywhere. It's general manager Karin Gilford told THR that it is in talks with Paramount and she "hopes they will join us". 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 only available for signup in the United States.

It may be more tricky for UltraViolet users.

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. According to Gilford, this service for movie purchases will have new titles before they become available on other streaming platforms. This app is played across a number of devices like Apple TV, Android, Amazon Fire TV and Roku.

As a launch promotion, when you link two or more accounts through Movies Anywhere, you get Big Hero 6, Ghostbusters (2016), Ice Age, Jason Bourne (2016), and The Lego Movie for free.
