Google launches support for Movies Anywhere

Google launches support for Movies Anywhere

With a free Movies Anywhere account, films you purchase via Google Play Movies, Amazon, iTunes, or Vudu will all appear in a combined library - and you won't have to repurchase them to get access.

Today, the idea of merging the various digital movie collections owned by many consumers will become a reality with the expansion of the Disney Movies Anywhere app and website to include nearly every major film studio in Hollywood. Before today, the sharing capabilities were limited only to Disney.

Ultraviolet, the previous multi-studio digital locker, never really took off with consumers because it's missing a couple of key ingredients: interlinking with the big digital retailers like Amazon, Google and iTunes - and, well, Disney movies.

Customers can use a free app to connect their Movies Anywhere account with participating digital retailers, and Movies Anywhere will sync the library across accounts so users can stream or download on a wide variety of devices (including Amazon Fire, Android and Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS devices and Roku devices). Other retailers and studios may join in the future.

Universal Pictures, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures Entertainment have signed on to the effort, the statement said.

Disney Movies Anywhere launched in 2014 as the first major stab at an exclusive streaming service for Disney. Unfortunately, last month Disney announced that they are pulling support for Microsoft's Movies & TV platform from Movies Anywhere. Understanding the needs of consumers, five major Hollywood studios and four major digital retailers are coming on board to significantly improve the service.

As of this writing, the Movies Anywhere site is still in a holding pattern, featuring an animation and the hashtag #AnywhereIsComing.

Featuring films from Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios (encompassing Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros.

The initial push will be for people to link accounts with the service, to push it, Disney is giving users who link their accounts access to Ghostbusters (2016) and Ice Age, and if they link a second retailer they will get access to Big Hero 6, Jason Bourne and The Lego Movie as well.
