Movies Anywhere – the viewing service that allows customers of video services like Disney, Apple, and others to view their movies in a central app – has added FandangoNOW to the stable of on demand streaming services that can be accessed via the iOS and Apple TV app.
“We are thrilled to welcome FandangoNOW, a go-to online destination for movie fans, as our newest digital retailer. Movies Anywhere is rapidly revolutionizing the way that consumers access and enjoy their digital movie collections,” said Karin Gilford, General Manager at Movies Anywhere.
Gifford continued, noting the Movies Anywhere app has been used to store more than 100 million movies since it debuted last year.
Movies Anywhere acts as a central location to view movies distributed by Disney, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. The service strives to make it simpler to access the content from the above studios. Before the app’s release, viewers were limited in their options when they desired to view one of the movies they had purchased from individual services.
Movies by any of the above five studios that were purchased through Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu, and FandangoNOW can now connect their digital viewing service accounts with Movie Anywhere, and can then watch the content in the services’ individual apps or via the Movies Anywhere app. The app is available for Apple TV, iOS, Amazon Fire, Android, Chromecast and Roku devices.
To promote the addition of FandangoNOW to Movies Anywhere, customers who make FandangoNOW the first service connected to their Movies Anywhere account will get two free movies. The offer is available for a limited time.
