Today, Movies Anywhere welcomes its newest digital retailer, FandangoNOW, Fandango's video on-demand service available on more than 200 million connected devices.

Fandango joins the four other existing Movies Anywhere digital retailers: Apple's iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, and Walmart's Vudu. However, movies rented from digital retailers can not be accessed from Movies Anywhere.

After linking their FandangoNow account with Movies Anywhere, users can watch their redeemed and purchased digital movies from any participating digital retailer on platforms including Amazon Fire devices; Android devices and Android TV; Google's Chromecast; Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; Roku devices; and web browsers. Movies Anywhere is rapidly revolutionizing the way that consumers access and enjoy their digital movie collections. Movies Anywhere offers a library of almost 7,500 digital movies, including new releases, and will continue to expand the consumer experience as more content providers, digital retailers and platforms are added.

"We are thrilled to welcome FandangoNOW, a go-to online destination for movie fans, as our newest digital retailer", said Karin Gilford, General Manager, Movies Anywhere.

Even if you aren't now a big FandangoNOW user, this is still exciting news.

This is another foothold in the digital market that you probably weren't aware that Disney had. Movies Anywhere brings together the movies from Sony Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox Film, The Walt Disney Studios (including Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Universal Pictures (including DreamWorks and Illumination Entertainment) and Warner Bros. Last October, the company launched Movies Anywhere in partnership with the four other studios.

Movies Anywhere says it already supports almost 7,500 different titles, and on a similar note, today (March 13, 2018) also marks the first day that you can digitally purchase Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Interestingly, Fandango still remains a member of UltraViolet network - a similar digital-entertainment locker service - but which never secured big players like Disney, Apple, Google, and Amazon.

Now that Fandango has joined Movies Anywhere, "FandangoNow customers will gain simple, streamlined access to their digital movies from Hollywood's major film studios", said Fandango chief marketing officer Adam Rockmore.
