Google Play Movies Gets Support for ‘Movies Anywhere’ Service Enabling Users To Stream Purchased Movies From Multiple Platforms
Google Play Movie has finally got the support for Movies Anywhere service. The Movies Anywhere service was launched in 2014, it also has an enhanced version named as Disney Movie Anywhere. The service allows users to stream purchased movies on multiple platforms, regardless of where they originally bought them.
In contrast to “Disney Movies Anywhere” service, the normal Movies Anywhere does not restrict movies from Disney Studios only. It lets users stream movies from other prominent studios like Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal and Warner Bros. With the Movies Anywhere service, users can now stream purchased movies from platforms like Google Play, Amazon, iTunes and Vudu. In a nutshell, it is a single service for multiple platforms.
To make you understand it better, assume that you purchased the “Wonder Woman” on iTunes. Now, you just need to connect your iTunes and Google accounts to Movies Anywhere. After successfully linking your accounts, all your purchased movies from iTunes will be automatically added to your Play Movies library without you requiring to repurchase the same title.
The movie streaming market is populated with a slew of services now, and it only makes sense to have a single service to feature it all. It also makes a lot easier for the users as they can purchase any movie and stream it anywhere.
Starting with the Movies Anywhere service is pretty easy, as we mentioned earlier, you just need to connect your Google Play, Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu accounts to the service by using the Movies Anywhere app or website. Once connected, the service will automatically sync all your accounts from several studios.
To make it sweeter, Google is also offering five free movies if you link two or more accounts to Movie Anywhere.
Here are the free movies on offer:
- Big Hero 6
- Ghostbusters (2016)
- Ice Age
- Jason Bourne
- The Lego Movie
Currently, Movies Anywhere service is available in the US only. And there is no word regarding launching it outside the region.
