A new service launched late yesterday promises to make streaming your favorite purchased cinema easier by putting them all in one place. The new free app Movies Anywhere acts like a digital locker for the cinema you’ve paid for by several online retailers, including Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes, and Vudu. Signing up for a Movies Anywhere comment gives you entrance to the digital locker, which you can then stock with purchased or redeemed cinema by logging in to the accounts you have with those online retailers.
It takes a lot of behind-the-scenes work for a service like this to flourish. It’s not easy to access movies you’ve purchased from an online retailer from another service. Typically, users have to go back and onward between Amazon, Google, iTunes, and Vudu to watch the titles they purchased by any outlet. According to a report from the Verge, Movies Anywhere can collect all those titles in one place since it’s built off of the same digital rights complement design (called Keychest) that Disney first grown for its service Disney Movies Anywhere.
Disney launched its service in 2014, and it allowed users to get entrance to all of the company’s titles in one place. Movies Anywhere is using the same design with the blessing and partnership of 5 Hollywood studios: Walt Disney Studios (which includes Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm), Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. Entertainment. While discussions are ongoing with Paramount Pictures and Lionsgate to join the service, Movies Anywhere will not launch with any titles from those studios. However, that still means the service has some-more than 7,300 titles in its library already.
This isn’t the industry’s first try to simplify film organization, viewing, and purchasing for digital users. The formerly launched UltraViolet service was eventually deserted for Disney’s higher design and did not have support from companies like Apple.
In further to examination any cinema you’ve purchased by Movies Anywhere, you’ll also be means to squeeze cinema in the app. Before shopping a movie, you’ll see every connected tradesman that offers it, permitting you to select which services you wish to squeeze it from. That means you can buy a pretension from Google Play using your Google Play comment information but leaving the Movies Anywhere app.
Aside from Movies Anywhere ancillary the many renouned digital film retailers, the service also supports a accumulation of streaming devices. Movies Anywhere users can entrance their libraries and watch films on Android, Amazon Fire, and iOS devices, as good as Android TV, Apple TV, Roku, and Chromecast devices.
Users competence be skeptical of yet another service they need to sign up for in sequence to reap the advantages of an all-in-one digital library. However, the fact that the Movies Anywhere app is free will likely be interesting adequate for some folks. Movies Anywhere is also charity a tantalizing understanding when you bond accounts: when you couple your first account, Movies Anywhere will give you entrance to two free movies. Linking the second comment will give you another 3 free movies. There’s no word on how prolonged this graduation will last, but it is a “limited-time offer” for those who are the first to welcome Movies Anywhere as their digital film library.
