Disney vs. Vudu? ‘Movies Anywhere’ Adds Films from Fox, Sony, Universal

If you want to take your movies “anywhere,” it’s not just Disney anymore.

The Walt Disney Company has launched a new streaming video-on-demand service that looks like it will compete directly with Vudu.

The new service allows you to link accounts from Disney Movies Anywhere, Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and Vudu… putting all of your digital movies in one “locker.”

From The Verge

For several years now, Disney has been the only Hollywood studio with a digital movie locker worth using, but a host of other industry heavyweights have now jumped on board to launch an expanded version of the service called Movies Anywhere. It’s both a cloud-based digital locker and a one-stop-shop app: customers connect Movies Anywhere to their iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, or Vudu accounts, and all of the eligible movies they’ve purchased through those retailers appear as part of their Movies Anywhere library. Given that the Movies Anywhere app works across a number of platforms, it basically allows them to take their digital film library with them no matter what device or operating system they’re using.

(Of course, being owned by Disney there’s a definite focus on Disney movies.)

If you sign up right now, they’ll give you five free movies: Ghostbusters (2016), Big Hero 6, Ice Age, The LEGO Movie and Jason Bourne.
