Google launches support for Movies Anywhere

Google launches support for Movies Anywhere

Today, Movies Anywhere's expanded launch will feature films from Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. The collation of these major Hollywood Studios means there's over 7,000 available to be added to your locker, with Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes and Vudu (A Walmart company) all set up to let you redeem the titles.

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).

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. 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.

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. "And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless". It's general manager Karin Gilford told THR that it is in talks with Paramount and she "hopes they will join us". However, this is not a merger, as both Disney Movies Anywhere and UltraViolet will remain separate - though still connected - services.

It may be more tricky for UltraViolet users. Unfortunately, last month Disney announced that they are pulling support for Microsoft's Movies & TV platform from Movies Anywhere.

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.
