In a move that strengthens the digital movie ecosystem, on-demand video service FandangoNOW, available on more than 200 million connected devices, has become the digital retailer to join the initiative.
Movie lovers can now easily centralise and access their favourite digital movies purchased and redeemed through FandangoNOW alongside their titles from other participating digital retailers. Through Movies Anywhere, consumers have one home for their digital movie collection with a seamless, cross-platform digital entertainment experience and access to a library of nearly 7,500 digital movies—including 2017’s No. 1 film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which arrived digitally on March 12th.
Using the Movies Anywhere app and website, FandangoNOW customers can access their eligible digital movies from Hollywood’s major film studios including Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios (encompassing Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures (including DreamWorks and Illumination Entertainment) and Warner Bros. Upon connecting their FandangoNOW account with Movies Anywhere, users can watch their favourite redeemed and purchased digital movies from participating digital retailers on an array of platforms including Amazon Fire devices; Android devices and Android TV; Chromecast; iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; Roku devices and popular browsers.
“We are thrilled to welcome FandangoNOW, a go-to online destination for movie fans, as our newest digital retailer,” declared Karin Gilford, General Manager, Movies Anywhere. “Movies Anywhere is rapidly revolutionising the way that consumers access and enjoy their digital movie collections. The app has been used to store over 100 million movies to date. The popularity of Movies Anywhere is largely due to the extraordinary content, including exclusives and promotions, and the support provided through our growing list of online digital retailers,” .
“At Fandango, we aim to deliver the best movie experience anytime and anywhere, throughout a movie’s entire life cycle — from theatrical to home entertainment and beyond,” commented Fandango CMO, Adam Rockmore. “Since FandangoNOW’s launch in 2016, we’ve been hyper-focused on innovation, including building one of the industry’s largest collections of 4K Ultra HD movies and broadening our distribution on a wide variety of connected devices. Now, through our new relationship with Movies Anywhere, FandangoNOW customers will gain simple, streamlined access to their digital movies from Hollywood’s major film studios.”
To celebrate the launch of this exciting relationship with FandangoNOW, Movies Anywhere has ramped up its user experience even more by adding several profile picture options. For example: Star Wars fans can choose from the Rebel Alliance Starbird, a Stormtrooper or the First Order emblem, and change their profile picture selection whenever they wish.
