Despite the advent of streaming services today, some users still prefer to buy or rent movies through traditional digital retailers. This tradition has some advantages when compared to simply subscribing to a streaming service. One benefit is that you get to keep your digital copy of the film in your collection. As we all know, streaming services like Netflix, HBO Max or Disney Plus keep shuffling off their content each month.
But, with all the renting and purchasing of movies, comes the need to have all this content in one collection. That’s where Movies Anywhere comes in. It is a streaming platform backed by big companies in the entertainment industry that collects all your purchased movies into a single library collection. The service is free but you have to pay for the content through the connected digital retailers.
Various online movie retailers are available in Movies Anywhere including Google Play/YouTube, iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Xfinity, DIRECTV, FandangoNOW, Verizon Fios TV, Microsoft Movies & TV, and Vudu.
Aside from putting up a library of content for you, Movies Anywhere also enables users to access and watch them anywhere on a whole range of devices and configurations. And today, that is exactly what we are going to discuss.
