Movies Anywhere Launched by Five Studios!

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.

Today, Movies Anywhere's expanded launch will feature films from Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros.

The new service offers support for iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu and more and it supports a wide range of movie studios.

Movie lovers now have a new home for their favorite digital movies as Movies Anywhere launches in the US today with an unprecedented five Hollywood studios and four major digital retailers on board.

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.

The season pass is included in the Assassin's Creed Origins Gold Edition and is also available for purchase separately for $39.99. Far Cry 5 isn't out until early 2018, but you will be able to play it later this month on the PS4 Pro console at Armageddon.

"Movies Anywhere is a massive step forward for the consumer digital media experience, bringing the incredible film libraries of five studios together in a virtual one-stop movie-watching shop", said Karin Gilford, General Manager, Movies Anywhere. "And as Movies Anywhere continues to add more studios, retailers and platforms, the entertainment possibilities are endless".

If you already use the Disney Movies Anywhere service, you're in luck. Disney didn't share exactly why the company pulled support for Microsoft Movies & TV. Now, you'll only ever need to use one app again.

Five Hollywood film studios have joined together to offer a new service created to make it easier for consumers to collect digital movies that they can watch at home or on mobile devices, the studios said in a statement on Wednesday. It is similar to Ultraviolet, but will allegedly work more seamlessly and has the capacity of bringing together more studios and online retailers. According to Gilford, customers can also access their library on the new service (Disney Movies Anywhere will be phased out).

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.
