Movies Anywhere Is Now Available On Xbox Consoles

September 14, 2021 - Posted in Games Posted by:

On September 14, the Movies Anywhere app has launched on Xbox consoles. The app allows users to watch movies and TV shows from various digital retailers or purchase content from a digital storefront.

The Movies Anywhere app is available now in the Microsoft store for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X. In addition to purchasing movies through the Movies Anywhere storefront, the app allows users to sync purchased content from Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play/YouTube, Microsoft Movies & TV, Xfinity, Verizon, and DirectTV, so all your content is in one place.

The Movies Anywhere app has been expanding into new markets in the past year. It launched on Samsung TVs earlier this year. In 2020, Movies Anywhere announced Screen Pass, which allows you to share selected movies with friends, and this also gives users the ability to watch content together.

Movies Anywhere on Xbox launches with 4K support, as long as you’re using a TV that can support that.

However, as reported back in 2017, the service does come at a cost. Movies Anywhere shares your data–but you can opt out of most of it. According to the app, it shares personal information about your account, video titles, descriptions, and other video activity with participating studios, affiliates, and service providers. Even if you opt out of this, the app will need to share some information–both video data and personal info–with certain service providers.
