Movies Anywhere, the service that allows you to build your digital movie collection by connecting iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, and other accounts, announced today the launch of a Watch Together feature.
With Watch Together, you can watch your favorite movies with friends and family, with fully integrated, seamless co-viewing across mobile, web, and connected devices. While many services are now offering co-viewing features, Movies Anywhere says it is the only app that allows purchased movies to be synced.
In March, Movies Anywhere added another feature, Screen Pass, which allows users to share their purchased movies with a friend. With the addition of Watch Together, users can now watch purchased movies from their collection with friends, even if not everyone in the group has bought the title.
To get started, select a title from your Movies Anywhere collection and select the Watch Together button. You’ll be given a room code or URL that you can use to invite up to 9 guests to your virtual room. When everyone has joined the room, you can start the movie for you and all of the guests. Note that all guests must have either purchased, redeemed a digital code, or received a Screen Pass for the selected movie in order to Watch Together.
Anyone who receives a Watch Together room code or URL can log into their Movies Anywhere account or sign up for a free account to join in on the viewing party. The feature is free for both hosts and guests, and there’s no limit on how many Watch Together movies you can host or join.
Login to Movies Anywhere to start watching together.
