"Bye-bye", Disney Movies Anywhere; "Hello", Movies Anywhere!

Judging by the action in FREE/BARGAIN — Media Deals (non-eBook/non-audiobook), it's easy to surmise many of us MobileReaders are Hollywood insiders - at least to the extent that we learned via email this week and didn't have to find out in the news like the hoi polloi did - about the following developments at Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) and the new digital movie locker service Movies Anywhere, and about the limited-time-only free bonus movie bribes -er, incentives - to promptly register a Movies Anywhere account and link to it one's Vudu, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Movies accounts.

Why the freebie incentives? And, why are tbey limited-time-only?

Some Hollywood studios are not yet participating in Movies Anywhere, most notably, Lionsgate and Paramount. However, the media pundits, industry analysts, and internal DMA and Movies Anywhere stakeholders believe those heavyhitter holdouts will climb aboard once Movies Anywhere membership reaches critical mass.

Here's what's afoot, as announced at DMA Support, Variety, and elsewhere:

Disney Movies Anywhere Support
  • Excerpts
Quote:
Disney Movies Anywhere is going away soon. Join MOVIES ANYWHERE and transfer your movies now.
Quote:
Movies Anywhere makes the movie watching experience easier and better by offering one home for your favorite purchased movies from iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play and Vudu.
Stephanie Prange. (October 11, 2017). "Movies Anywhere App Launches With Joint Studio Backing". Variety.
  • Excerpts
Quote:
With the advent of Movies Anywhere, Disney Movies Anywhere will go away, and consumers will be able to join Movies Anywhere and transfer their movies into their new Movies Anywhere account,
Quote:
Viewers can start streaming a movie on one device and finish it on another. Two viewers can watch the same title on different devices at one time, and up to four viewers can stream different content on different devices at the same time. Consumers can access their library on Amazon Fire devices, Android mobile and tablet devices, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, the Roku platform and popular web browsers.
Quote:
To entice consumers to join Movies Anywhere, the service is offering up to five free digital movies. When consumers link to the first retailer on the service, they get free access to “Ghostbusters” (2016) and “Ice Age.” Linking to a second retailer gives consumers free access to “Big Hero 6,” “Jason Bourne” and “The Lego Movie.” The service plans a big marketing and advertising push including support from participating studios and digital retail partners. The tagline is “Your movies together at last.

Connecting the accounts was quick and painless. The 5 free movies show up immediately. However (since only some of the studios have signed on as noted in the linked post in MR News) only some of my movies from those accounts showed up (less than half).

Once you have connected the accounts you can view the movies on any of them from the apps of any of the services, a bonus if you prefer the playback of one app. For me, on Roku, playback performance on the Vudu app is much better overall than the Amazon app, especially fast forwarding and rewinding but not just that. The Google Play app playback is the worst with many many problems encountered.

Also, only movies are connected not TV seasons or episodes which are a bigger part of my accounts.

I already had one of the movies free from elsewhere, but as keithdt said it was quick and easy to sign up.

I can no longer tell which films were originally Google Play, Disney, Sony, or UltraViolet as now they all show up under Google Play, Vudu, and Movies Anywhere. Oh well, it will be nice to have everything together in one spot (or in more than one spot - lol).

I couldn't add my iTunes as it says I need a compatible device. So the movie studios may be playing well together but Android and Apple still don't get along

Keithdt and library addict have excellently captured the experience, for better and for worse, of setting up, connecting to, and then using Movies Anywhere. I like the concept and purpose of this new digital locker service, but its execution is still a work in progress and imperfect.

Like keithdt, I have many movies and tv shows that didn't transfer to Movies Anywhere (at this stage). And like library addict, I'd be hard put to remember where I acquired some movies that did transfer, if I weren't so anal about cataloguing my digital videos and audio works in Calibre (and when warranted, in MediaMonkey). Also like library addict, I'm an Android user and didn't appreciate the need to connect my iTunes content using either an iOS device or iTunes for Windows. Seems to me Apple's making that a requirement contradicts the whole "collect and consume your digital movies using the sources and devices you choose" idea.

Very happy to see this. It is great being able to pull all my movies together from several services. It was a hodgepodge before with my movies scattered across Amazon, Google, and Vudu. Hopefully the few holdout movie companies will get on board.
