5 major Hollywood studios join forces for new digital service 'Movies Anywhere'

Google Play Movies Anywhere

One of the main advantages of this new service is that you can simply buy the movie you want to watch with a one-off payment, and then you have it in your digital locker FOREVER.

Major studios now not included under the Movies Anywhere umbrella include Paramount and Lionsgate, though according to The Verge, conversations are ongoing. Movies Anywhere is now giving its new users a limited-time offer to receive up to five digital movies.

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.

Once you've linked your libraries to Movies Anywhere, you can access them on any of your devices. "And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless".


Movies Anywhere is new cloud-based movie streaming service that unites the purchases you've made on streaming services such as iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, and Vudu, and allows you to add supported films purchased on Blu-ray and DVD. Movies Anywhere will include movies from major studios like 20 Century Fox, Universal, Sony Pictures, and Warner Brothers.

Disney Movies Anywhere launched in 2014 as the first major stab at an exclusive streaming service for Disney. In addition, as of press times, there is now an issue preventing the service from linking to VUDU accounts, but this is expected to be fixed by 10AM PT. You might buy Big Hero 6 on Amazon, or Google Play, or iTunes, but then you might forget exactly where you purchased that particular film, or how to revisit it. Anyone who links two or more Google Play accounts to Movies Anywhere will get those films show up in their library. Movies Anywhere aims to do what UltraViolet couldn't: provide a single destination for titles purchased nearly anywhere.

You will be able to create five sub-accounts aside from the master account.

This allows for a seamless viewing experience that users can access using the Movies Anywhere app, and can be used on Amazon Fire devices; Android devices and Android TV; Apple TV; Chromecast; iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and; Roku devices. One of those potential additions might be Paramount Pictures, who were left out in the cold for this launch because they couldn't agree on financial terms like the rest of the studios did - but they could still join once they come to an agreement.
