Movies Anywhere is a Disney owned service that connects digital purchases via Google Play, Amazon Video, iTunes, and Vudu to a single account. This allows you to watch movies purchased on Google Play on your Apple TV and movies from iTunes on your Fire TV. (As long as they are movies from 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Universal Pictures.)
All you have to do is connect your accounts for each of these services to your Movies Anywhere account and you’ll be able to watch your purchased films from any of the aforementioned studios on the Movies Anywhere app at any time. Not only that but if you activate and connect your account with any of those digital retailers, and you’ll also get Ice Age, Ghostbusters (2016), Big Hero 6, Jason Bourne, and The Lego Movie for free.
The Movie Anywhere app is currently available for iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire devices, Chromecast, select web browsers, and Sony Bravia Smart Televisions. Hopefully, Disney continues to roll out their app to more devices like the Apple TV and Roku soon.
No timeline has been announced for when movies from companies like Fox and Sony Pictures will show up in the Movies Anywhere app but hopefully, it will happen by years end.
