Microsoft Joins Movies Anywhere Digital Movie Platform [Updated]

microsoft-movies-anywhereMicrosoft has launched a new web page announcing partnership with Disney’s Movies Anywhere. This will effectively merge all titles purchased on Xbox and Microsoft Movies & TV with other Movies Anywhere-eligible films.

The movies linked with MA will be available on Xbox consoles and Windows computers, as well as iOS, Android and streaming media players.

Movies Anywhere has been the best attempt so far at consolidating consumer digital libraries into one place. Previously, if you owned a movie on iTunes it might not have been viewable on Amazon, or a movie from Google Play would not be accessible on Vudu, and so forth.

UltraViolet, a worthy effort to join one’s digital libraries together from various studios, wasn’t able to make the complete circle to encompass all services and studios.

However, Movies Anywhere is still short of a few studios to be the complete answer. Sony, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Warner Bros., and of course Disney films are all compatible, but Paramount, Lionsgate, and MGM have yet to join the platform.

Microsoft is offering a free digital copy of X-Men: Days of Past to customers who sync their Microsoft accounts with Movies Anywhere.

As of this article Movies Anywhere has not updated their web page to include Microsoft.

[Update: Oops. Guess we broke the news too early. Microsoft yanked the page temporarily, but soon made it live again. See the screen shots below for reference.]
