Movies Anywhere's new feature lets you share digital movies with friends

02 Sep 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Digital movie locker service Movies Anywhere's 'Screen Pass' feature is now available for everyone. It lets you share digital movies with family and friends.

Share digital movies

Movies Anywhere is a digital movie locker that links Amazon Video, Apple TV (iTunes), Google Play, Microsoft Store (and Xbox), Xfinity, FandangoNow, and Vudu. Participating Hollywood studios include Disney, Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal and Warner Bros. 'Screen Pass' was added to Movies Anywhere in beta form in March 2020 and is as of this week officially available for everyone. It lets you share purchased movies with friends or family for a limited time at no additional cost as long as both parties have the Movies Anywhere app installed. Users get 3 screen passes each month, meaning that they can share 3 movies (or the same movie with three people).

Movies Anywhere Screen Pass

Approximately 6500 movies are Screen Pass-eligible. This translates to over 80% of the library that can be linked to Movies Anywhere. Movies Anywhere also recently launched a 'Watch Together' feature that lets users "share a synced viewing experience with up to 9 other people at the same time". However, unlike Screen Pass, all participants must own the movie. Movies Anywhere is available exclusively in the US at this time, with no news on international availability. The app can be accesses from popular TV platforms including Apple TV, Roku, FireTV, LG webOS TVs, and Vizio TVs.
