Movies Anywhere allows you to bring together films that you've purchased into one app. It works with content from Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV, and several other popular services. Today, Movies Anywhere launched an app for Xbox consoles, including the Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.
Since Microsoft Movies & TV works with Movies Anywhere, people could already watch some content through the Movies & TV app on their Xbox consoles. However, the new Movies Anywhere app includes some unique features that make it stand out. People can hold a watch party with Movies Anywhere to enjoy content with friends and family through the web. The app also supports Screen Pass, which lets people lend digital copies of a movie to someone else.
The Movies Anywhere app supports 4K, HDR 10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos, meaning it can take advantage of the best 4K TVs for Xbox Series X & Series S.
Joining Movies Anywhere is free, but you have to pay for any content you watch on it (or have someone lend you a copy with Screen Pass). Since Movies Anywhere works with several streaming services, you can shop for sales across platforms to find the best price.
Movies Anywhere only works with supported content. Sony, Universal, Disney, and Warner Brothers are on board, but some films won't be available through the app.
