Owning digital movies used to be a pain in the neck. Movies bought on iTunes were trapped on Apple devices, Google Play movies on Google’s service, and Amazon purchases in Prime Video. At the same time digital copies included with DVD and Blu-rays were often stuck in services like Vudu, Flixter, or UltraViolet. With Movies Anywhere, you can finally sync most of your movies across various services, putting your movies everywhere you want to watch.
What is Movies Anywhere?
Movies Anywhere is a video sync service and app for connecting your video libraries across different services. By linking your iTunes, Amazon, Google, Vudu accounts to Movies Anywhere, your digital movies are synced across all services, allowing you to watch your movies on any of the connected services, through a huge range of devices.
Why it’s great
Movies Anywhere offers syncing of a massive collection of content from 5 major studios (Fox, Disney, Universal, Sony, and WB). This means that you can count on the majority of your movie collection syncing from service to service.
Through the Movies Anywhere app (on iOS and Apple TV), you can view your library, as well as search for supported movies across the services. The service also automatically converts supported movies to 4K, meaning you can enjoy the highest quality version on supported devices. You can also search for and buy movies (via iTunes) directly within the app.
Another great feature of Movies Anywhere is the ability to redeem digital copy codes from directly inside the app. This allows you to redeem Ultraviolet movies (in addition to Vudu or iTunes) without hopping through hoops. This means that you can shop for the best deal on a movie, whether it’s on sale through a specific video service or a discounted on a physical copy that includes a digital version.
Who it’s for
Movies Anywhere is perfect for anyone with a large purchased collection of digital movies. Regardless of your devices, this is the best movie service for putting your library where you want it.
Bottom line: Movies Anywhere is the best movie service
If you’re investing in digital copies of movies, you need Movies Anywhere. Device and platform agnostic syncing makes it essential for managing your multi-device library.
