Disney's Movies Anywhere launches with five of six studios on board

Movies Anywhere

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

Online digital movie lockers have been fraught with road bumps, Ultra Violet was thought to be the answer, however a new service - Movies Anywhere - spearheaded by Disney could work even better.

Fans who have used Disney Movies Anywhere in the past know that Disney's servers allow users to connect to their various digital accounts and to share purchases across various platforms, so that items purchased on Vudu can be viewed in Apple's proprietary media players, on Google Play, or on Amazon's Prime Video app.

AFC Asian Cup qualifier, India vs Macau
The last time India reached the main stage of Asian football's showpiece event through the direct qualification route was in 1984. They have sealed qualification in some style in a tricky group, with two matches to spare.

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". Understanding the needs of consumers, five major Hollywood studios and four major digital retailers are coming on board to significantly improve the service.

Paramount is the last remaining major studio that is not a part of Movies Anywhere. "And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless". This means that both Disney Movies Anywhere and the UltraViolet platforms are still separate, but the latter is now running on the same sort of technology.

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.

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.
