FandangoNow, Fandango’s digital movie rental and sell-through service, has completed an integration with Movies Anywhere, the Disney-owned service that uses the KeyChest digital rights system.
With the digital tie-in, FandangoNow customers can use the Movies Anywhere platform, including apps and the web site, to access and view movies from studio partners that include Walt Disney Studios (including Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Sony Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures (including DreamWorks and Illumination Entertainment), and Warner Bros.
Movies Anywhere estimates that its library holds nearly 7,500 digital movies, including the just-released Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Tied to that release, Movies Anywhere has added several profile picture options that, for example, let users pick from the Rebel Alliance Starbird, Stormtrooper or the First Order emblem.
Movies Anywhere supports several platforms, including Amazon Fire devices, Android and Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS, Roku and web browsers.
FandangoNow joins a growing group of digital retailers that support Movies Anywhere, including Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Apple’s iTunes and Walmart-owned Vudu.
“We are thrilled to welcome FandangoNOW, a go-to online destination for movie fans, as our newest digital retailer,” Karin Gilford, GM, Movies Anywhere, said in a statement. “Movies Anywhere is rapidly revolutionizing the way that consumers access and enjoy their digital movie collections. The app has been used to store over 100 million movies to date.”
