Movies Anywhere, the service that allows you to build your digital movie collection by connecting iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Vudu, and other accounts, has a new feature. With the Screen Pass feature, you can share movies you’ve purchased with friends and family.
Screen Pass allows Movies Anywhere users to share up to three films per month. After the film is shared, the recipient will have seven days to accept, then 14 days to access the film. Once the film is started, the recipient will have 72 hours to finish the film. The person receiving the film will need a Movies Anywhere account to watch.
There aren’t any limits on how many times a film can be shared, and the original owner can access the film while it’s being lent out.
Not all films available on Movies Anywhere can be shared. Right now, this feature is in a beta period with over 6,000 titles eligible for sharing. During beta testing, not all Movies Anywhere users will be able to share their titles, but all users will be able to receive and watch titles. The beta test will go live today at 4pm EST/1pm PT with more users getting access to Screen Pass this May.
