There's more, the new Movies Anywhere service can also be linked to Amazon Video, iTunes and Vudu, so any films from the supported studios on those platforms can be viewed in the same place too.

Today, Disney has launched the same service for Android users.

Rumored yesterday, and then teased via social media hours later, the revamped Movies Anywhere app is expected to launch "any time", per a representative for the studios, with details officially released just minutes ago.

Movies Anywhere initially features access to a library of over 7,300 digital movies, along with fresh previews and film extras from the studios responsible for such 2017 global blockbusters as Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", Warner Bros.' "Wonder Woman", Sony Pictures' "Spider-Man: Homecoming", Universal's "The Fate of the Furious" and Twentieth Century Fox's "War for the Planet of the Apes".

Google has announced support for Movies Anywhere, a new service which seeks to make your movie collection available across multiple platforms. Other retailers and studios may join in the future.

When she got there she was married to Junaid Hussain, a British-Pakistani hacker who was killed in a drone strike in 2015. The wife of another immigrant to the so-called Islamic caliphate said she knew Jones and described her as "very cute".

Movies Anywhere is launching first in the U.S., and all movies purchased from Disney, Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros. will be available to watch on Google Play.

Featuring films from Sony Pictures Entertainment, The Walt Disney Studios (encompassing Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm), Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal Pictures and Warner Bros. Movies Anywhere now offers support for devices including Amazon Fire; Android devices and Android TV; Apple TV; Chromecast; Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; and Roku.

Of the majors, Paramount and Lionsgate are still to sign up to Movies Anywhere, but it'll only be a matter of time if it is successfully taken up by millions of users.

The initial push will be for people to link accounts with the service, to push it, Disney is giving users who link their accounts access to Ghostbusters (2016) and Ice Age, and if they link a second retailer they will get access to Big Hero 6, Jason Bourne and The Lego Movie as well.
