Movies Anywhere, previously known as Disney Movies Anywhere, is a cloud-based movies streaming service operated by The Walt Disney Company, and provides content from Walt Disney Studios, Universal Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures. Movies Anywhere serves as digital locker and centralized library through internal rights synchronization platform known as KeyChest, which synchronizes purchased content licenses from digital distribution platforms as well as digital copies redeemed from codes found in home media releases linked to a single user account.
Movies Anywhere supports the integration and linkage with Apple iTunes Store, Google Play Movies & TV, Vudu, Amazon Prime Video, and FandangoNOW, offering a convenient one go-to app of your choice for all the digital movies streaming needs no matter where you purchased them. One glaring exception until now is Microsoft Movies & TV. While the Microsoft used be to partner of Movies Anywhere, the support ceased in September 2017. But now, Microsoft Movies & TV re-joins the family of Movies Anywhere, and to entice you to link your Microsoft account to Movies Anywhere, a limited-time free perk is offered.
By connecting and syncing the Movies Anywhere account for the first time with participating digital retailer, which includes Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Apple iTunes and Fandango Now, you will receive X-Men: Days of Future Past (Theatrical HD Version) for free, added to your Movies Anywhere digital movie collection for life automatically.
The free X-Men: Days of Future Past movie offer is available from August 6, 2018 through August 28, 2018.
