Disney Makes a Virtual One-Stop Movie-Watching Shop For The US
Disney has launched their movie service Movies Anywhere today with the collaboration with four other major Hollywood Studios, 20th Century Fox, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros. The app allows you to have all of your paid for digital films in one convenient place and by signing up today you can get yourself some free films. The app and info is as follows:
Entertainment purchased or redeemed through digital retailers Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu, Movies Anywhere brings the movies people love together to create a simple, seamless digital entertainment experience across platforms.
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. Movies Anywhere syncs users’ libraries across their connected accounts, so consumers can watch their purchased and redeemed digital movies on an array of platforms including Amazon Fire devices; Android devices and Android TV; Apple TV; Chromecast; iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; Roku® devices and popular browsers, with more platforms and retailers to come.
Movies Anywhere initially features access to a library of over 7,300 digital movies, along with fresh previews and film extras from the studios responsible for such 2017 global blockbusters as Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” Warner Bros.’ “Wonder Woman,” Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” Universal’s “The Fate of the Furious” and Twentieth Century Fox’s “War for the Planet of the Apes.”
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. 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.” Connect with a second participating digital retailer and Disney’s “Big Hero 6,”Universal’s “Jason Bourne” and Warner Bros.’ “The LEGO Movie” will be added to your digital movie collection.
This new app is a great idea and great for both the consumers and the studios as collaboration like this is really only good for us. If enough people use the app, which they should because it just sounds super convinient then hopefully Disney can get some more studios on board to broaden out the amount of films they have available. Hopefully the app makes it’s way to Australia, because I just want it really but it would be good for our market, and hopefully the app makes it’s way to gaming consoles as well.
