Disney is all set on releasing a new version of its “Movies Anywhere”, a program which helps its users watch all their movies in a single place, no matter where they bought it from.
The service already existed under the name of “Disney Movies Anywhere” ever since 2014. However, it was rather limited as it included just films from the Walt Disney studio, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm (Star Wars).
The new Movies Anywhere evolved from this original version and should include a much wider range of movies.
Movies Anywhere Launched on October 11
Movies Anywhere, which will be a free app and website, is designed to be a digital locker service. Basically, through it, users will be able to watch any movie they bought recently, no matter the store from which they got it, or the device.
This should make it easier for users to access and enjoy their media files without having to worry about changing apps or devices. The service will work for digital copies of a movie bough from sources such as iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon, for example.
As already pointed out, one of the major differences from its original version is that this Movies Anywhere’s playlist will include films from more than just studio.
Beside Disney creation, users will easily watch films from five other major studios. Namely, the list now also includes Sony Pictures, Universal, Fox, and Warner Bros.
The platform, which went live on October 11, should work on most common devices. It should work just fine on Android, Roku, Apple TV, the Amazon Fire TV, and more.
Following its release, it should feature some 7,300 movies or more, numbers which will most likely continue growing. Movies Anywhere will also include film extras as well as previews from all of the partnering studios.
The platform also came with a special promotional offer for its release. Customers that activate and then connect their account to at least one of the four supported retailers can get up to five free movies. These are Jason Bourne, Ice Age, Big Hero 6, The Lego Movie, and Ghostbusters.
