In late 2017, Disney relaunched its Movies Anywhere service with a greatly expanded scope, bringing on several other major studios and allowing users to watch their movie purchases across Google Play, iTunes, Amazon, and Vudu no matter where they were originally purchased. At launch, Microsoft wasn't in on the program, despite having been a part of the service's previous incarnation. However, it looks like all of that is about to change soon, adding Microsoft's Movies & TV to the list of partners.
Twitter user WalkingCat, who has been a reliable source for numerous Microsoft-related leaks in the past, has posted what looks to be a new introduction video for Movies Anywhere. The curious part for Microsoft followers, however, is that Movies & TV is listed as one of the partner services during a portion of the video.

Microsoft has been said to be in talks about joining Movies Anywhere since at least March, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the company join the service soon. Combined with word that Microsoft is also working on bringing Movies & TV to Android and iOS, this would be a big boon for users of Microsoft's devices and services.
