Google has announced support Movies Anywhere, the service that allows you to synchronize your movies across multiple devices along with movies that you have purchased from other digital stores. The concept behind Movies Anywhere is to give you one repository for all of the movies you have bought from Apple’s iTunes, Amazon Prime, Vudu and now Google Play.
Today, we’re taking it one step further by adding support for Movies Anywhere, allowing you to bring together your movies from Google Play, Amazon, iTunes and Vudu into a single library that you can access on any of your devices, regardless of where the purchase was originally made.
The addition of Google Play is a real win for consumers as you don’t have to go to multiple places on your devices or try to remember where you purchased movies in the past. They all show up in one app now.
How the service works is pretty straightforward. Either through the app or the site, you can add you Google Play account, Amazon, iTunes and Vudu accounts to the service. Once you do, all the movies from Disney, Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal and Warner Bros. will be added to your new single account. From there, you can download them to your devices, stream them, or cast them to your Chromecast.
In an effort to sweeten the deal a bit, if you sign up for Movies Anywhere and add three services to your account, they will give you five free movies:
