Movies Anywhere wants to fix your scattered digital library

Applications
Do you hate having all your digital movies scattered across different apps? Well Disney and four other Hollywood studios just teamed up to try and solve that annoyance by launching a new service called Movies Anywhere. It's really a simple concept. Let's say you bought movies on iTunes, but you have a few also in Google Play, and you also downloaded some of Amazon and VUDU. This app, will bring your library together in one place and it works in reverse. All the movies also show up on your Amazon video app or iTunes, or your Google, Doo Doo Libraries. There is one catch, it's not for every movie, this app only links together 733 movies from five studios. It's Disney, Fox, Sony, Universal, and Warner Brothers. Paramount and Lions Gate are not partners right now. That means no Star Trek no Hunger Games. So, you still have to hop between apps for those titles. Now it doesn't cost anything to use Movies Anywhere and link up your accounts. The app is on Roku, Amazon, Android and Apple devices. So yes, that means if you purchased a movie on iTunes, you can watch it on a Roku or Chromecast or Fire TV. If you own a physical DVD or Bu-ray disc that is among the titles available, you can redeem your digital code with the app. Disney already used this account linking magic with its own app, it was called Disney Movies Anywhere, and that service is gonna go away and be replaced by this new app that stretches across more studios. Disney is leading this project to join up with other studios as a way to cut back on the clutter of many apps and maybe, when things are less messy You'll be more encouraged to buy more digital movies in this one-stop shop. To entice you to create an account, Movies Anywhere offers five free titles to get you started. There's Ice Age, the recent Ghostbusters, Big Hero 6, Jason Bourne, and The Lego Movie. I'm Bridget Carey, for a more in-depth look at the service, head to CNET.com.
