Disney’s Movies Anywhere Launches Watch Together Allowing 9-Person Viewing

movies-anywhere-watch-together-wonder-woman-1280pxMovies Anywhere has launched a new feature called Watch Together that allows synced co-viewing of movies by up to 9 people at the same time via Screen Pass. [Correction: Screen Pass is not required if participants already own a title.]

Viewers can also communicate with friends using real-time with emojis through the new sharing feature, and doesn’t require a plug-in or second screen. Watch Together is available on mobile devices, web browsers, and most smart TVs running the Movies Anywhere app.

We recently reviewed Screen Pass (the link system that allows MA members to share a movie with other MA members if not already purchased) and found not as many movies as one would hope allow the sharing.

However, with Movies Anywhere using blockbusters like Wonder Woman, Trolls, and The Fate of the Furious to promote Watch Together we imagine there will be an expansion of eligible titles.

Update: We took a look at some of the titles eligible for Watch Together and found recent releases like Just Mercy, Emma, Ford v Ferrari, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and Parasite, to name several. Indeed, we’ve been told 80% of the movies on Movies Anywhere can be “watched together.”

Movies Anywhere is a free service that allows members to store their digital movies across multiple platforms and stream through apps and web browsers. The service also sells titles through connecting partner retailers.

The platform is supported by Disney (Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm), Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros., as well as most major digital movie services.
