Disney's free Movies Anywhere service is expanding thanks to partnerships with Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros, allowing customers who purchase movies from services like iTunes and Amazon Video to watch all of their content in one place using the Movies Anywhere apps.

Disney has been using Movies Anywhere for Disney, Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm titles since 2014, but now the available content library has greatly expanded. The new Movies Anywhere service replaces the existing Disney version.

With a Movies Anywhere account, Movies Anywhere content purchased from Google Play, Amazon Video, iTunes, and Vudu can be accessed the service. It can also be used for digital content that comes alongside physical copies of DVDs or Blu-Rays so long as they're from Disney or one of its partner studios.

There are Movies Anywhere apps for the Apple TV and iOS devices, and the service is limited to the United States at the current time.

While most movie studios are on board, allowing users to watch more than 7,300 titles, Paramount and Lionsgate have yet to sign up.

Users who sign up for Movies Anywhere and connect their accounts with one digital retailer can get access to Ice Age and Ghostbusters (2016) for free. With two accounts added to the service, users can also get access to Big Hero 6, Jason Bourne, and The Lego Movie at no cost.

The last three movies I purchased had digital copies which were only available on Vudu. Pissed me off. I want my whole collection on Itunes so it's on all of my devices. Called the company, they said they're sorry, but I can stream it anywhere. I asked how that worked on planes. Crickets.

If they're going to make up a million services to store our digital media, at least have reciprocal agreements with all of the others so we can each use the service most convenient to us. In the meantime, I won't be buying any movies from WB or Sony again.
Did you not read this post? This is the point of Movies Anywhere you can watch any purchased movie from all of the participating libraries. Link your Vudu and iTunes and then you can just download the movie from the iTunes store on your device.

Right, it does NOW, but this sounds like it will be yet ANOTHER app to go to. Movies should just be in your library, but I doubt it will be that way.
Right you have to download the app or go to the website first and set up and link all of your accounts. But after that any movie you purchase at VUDU, Amazon, Google, or iTunes will just be in your purchased history for each retailer. So you can go into your purchased section in iTunes and see something you purchased from Amazon. So once you setup everything you don't have to go back to the Movies Anywhere app.

Now the real question is what is going to happen as far as 4K/HDR rights between services especially iTunes which upgrades HD to 4K?

This is great news! This means you can buy movies on whatever service you want (Amazon Video, Google Play, iTunes or Vudu) and then watch them on any of the services. For example, buy a movie cheap on Vudu and then have it automatically added to your iTunes account.
