This app is awesome! Especially when I pair it with the fire stick. Big fan!!
Not happy all I get are errors!
Don't waste your time 1/5
I just tried to watch one of my movies using movies anywhere. I pressed play and after 5 minutes of telling me it was loading I closed the app and went to Vudu and was able to watch the movie.
This app is a joke. It always has been. They advertise that you can watch all of your movies, anywhere. Then I find out that there are certain movie producers that they don't support; so you can't watch all of your movies anywhere. That's somebody's pipe dream.
Wish in one hand; spit in the other; see which one fills up first.
Just okay 2/5
Easy to set up, but doesn’t do any good until all studios and digital retailer are on board. Still have to have other apps to watch all my movies.
Movies anywhere 5/5
It is as advertised and more
Being trying to sign in need to verify my account but I can because they never send the email being waiting for 1 month now
Great, but a few flaws. 4/5
This app is the representation of a great idea. However, it’s not quite perfect.
The biggest problem is that not all studios have signed up, so even though you can merge your iTunes, Amazon, Google, and Disney accounts, you’ll have movies missing from your collection. For example, the John Wick films are not available.
The next biggest problem, for me, and the reason I no longer use the app to watch movies on my phone, is you can’t ‘full screen’ movies on the iPhone X. Whether a film is 16:9 or CinemaScope Widescreen, the movie is letterboxed on the sides. Double tapping on the screen doesn’t zoom the image to full screen. It does nothing. So disappointing.
Full 4K UHD Support Essential 1/5
Simply put, not making it obvious when you have the 4K rights to a movie through Movies Anywhere is a must-have. Until the app (and the MA service as a whole, for that matter) fixes and clarifies UHD title support, it's behind where it needs to be.
Great idea needs more improvements 2/5
This app is great and i love it but we need some more improvement nets guys we need to double tap to zoom in full screen other wise awsome app come on guys add in double tap to zoom in so we can’t trench th picture not using that app till that feature comes Also needs a disc to digital more vendors PlayStation Microsoft and Comcast xfinity and FandangoNow
Please add 4/5
When I put my amazon on I thought I would be able to stream amazon free movies too but it never let me
And I wish I could watch shows and movies and many things
Makes consolidating your movie library a snap! 5/5
Awesome app! I linked Vudu and my iTunes library. Now no matter where I am I have access to all of my movies. If only I could use two iTunes accounts, that would be great. (Make sure you work out custody of your movie library when you get divorced!)
Finally an App that combines it all 5/5
I am so glad to finally have an app that crosses all platforms. I am able to get me movies from iTunes, Disney Movies, Amazon and Vudu all in one place!
Can’t change email address 4/5
App works well but I need to change the email address that is associated with the account and there doesn’t seem to be a way. Junk.
Just awful 1/5
By N/A 1234
Nice concept, but poor execution.
Confusing legal agreement for data sharing too.
I cannot rate this very high because of bad matrixes - including in two Star Wars movies - The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi for Improper order, and The Lion King for putting The in the O of Lion King
Simply does not work... 1/5
Have tried numerous time to login, says that the password that I use with my desktop is not valid. Works with my desktop but not the app. Tried to reset the password, said sending and email, never did. Tried half a dozen times, still no joy! Now cannot login with either desktop if the app. Basically useless.
Completely BS! 1/5
I bought a instant download move. I redeemed it through the app. I didn’t get the move I payed for. I tried redeeming again and now it says it already been redeemed. I don’t recommend this app to ANYONE!
No 4K redemption 1/5
Upgrade to 4K redemption for codes from a 4K disc.
Worst app ever!!!! 5/5
This app has a lot of money and it’s not fair at all!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never wanted to see and use this app ever again!!!!!! Neeeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does nothing without crashing 1/5
Try playing and it says listening issues. Then try to mirror on Apple 4K tv and it crashes. It does not save offline because it looks for a signal even after it downloads which makes no sense so you have to turn off WiFi whenever you wanna watch but in iOS 11 the moment you hit a new WiFi network it turns back on. This is the biggest waste of time they should just take it off and come back in a year when they fix it
Poor system 1/5
Constantly crashes, slow loading, not “compatible” with my Sony/Android smart TV that was previously compatible with Disney Movies Anywhere, no way to easily select a scene, extremely disappointed. I spend hundreds of dollars on Disney Movies Anywhere for my smart tv, and we loved it. Now that DMA has become this Movies Anywhere, it has been problem after problem, I’m worried about how much money has been wasted.
By Dark 5tar
This app would be good, but for the fact that you can’t turn off the Subtitles. They give you a couple of ways they say will do it, but none work and now I have movies that are annoying to watch. My Digital films were fine before this app made me use it. Obviously I don’t have a choice, so I’m stuck.
UPDATE: A person named Keaton from Movies anywhere contacted me, and solve the problem! Other than my original problem, the app is great! Great response from Movies Anywhere!😃👍🏻
Warning Stay away 1/5
None of my Disney 4k disk I purchase that came with a digital code are not redeeming in 4k only HD ? It was redeeming in 4k with dma and now that MA took over it’s not? technically MA is DMA it’s the same, but now are not redeeming 4k ? Don’t spend your money on disney 4k disk titles if the digital code don’t redeem in 4k just buy the bluray disk which redeem in HD and is a whole lot cheaper
Re entering 2/5
So I'm coming from the disney movies app. Currently sitting waiting to take a plane where I'm under the impression that my movies will still be accessed. Nope I was wrong I now have to go and find all the access codes to my movies once I get home which I had already downloaded! And I hope I still have those codes. Not happy about that .... I shouldn't have to put in the codes again coming from one format to another if it's an "update". Hopefully all my movies will transfer over ... so far not loving the app.
By steff cast
This is an awesome app, except that some movies do not have an alternate language. I bought a couple of movies that you could only change caption language and not the audio. But on my iTunes TV app they do have the different audio language settings. I hate it because my son can’t watch the movies in Spanish through the app.( I chrome cast)
Linking accounts doesn’t work right 1/5
By Wolf Master
When linking accounts app says they are linked but the movies are not there.
Merges everything into 1 5/5
This merges all you movies from different sites into one library available on every service your logged into!!! Highly recommend!
Buffering Issues 2/5
This app lets you redeem Ultraviolet codes for movies. There’s a “My Movies” page that lets you review your movies. Upon selecting a movie, you can read its details, play the feature, or play its special features. It supports Chromecast.
I have tried playing a 4K copy of “Mad Max” on my Chromecast. I regularly stream HD Netflix content to this Chromecast without a hitch. I expect the same from any paid video service.
This app does not consistently stream HD video to the Chromecast. It often wavers between HD and SD, and sometimes stops to buffer. This is unacceptable. I do not receive such performance problems in any of my other video streaming apps.
In closing, this app does a good job of redeeming your purchases, allowing you to browse your content, and streaming your content over Chromecast or even downloading it to your phone. However, the end-user experience is marred by buffering issues and inconsistent streaming quality. I hope the Movies Anywhere team can improve their streaming backend, perhaps through intelligent caching, to support a growing user base.
Will not send a verification email 1/5
I’m writing about the Apple TV version of this app, which is completely unusable. When I first installed it, it worked fine, though after connecting Amazon it wouldn’t add movies I purchased there afterwards. However, over the past few days it does nothing but spin. I can’t even navigate to settings. It’s completely worthless.
Great idea, low performance 3/5
I downloaded this to simply project my iTunes bought movies onto my chromecast but every time i do connect this app with my chromecast it works for 20 min and then shuts the chromecast off.
I do love this app it saves my storage, but when I went to open it I could not find it (I only have one page) I thought I accidentally deleted it. So I like looked in the App Store and settings and it was saying I still had it! In that being I deleted it to re-get it but now I can not re-download it. This is so frustrating!
Love it. 5/5
This app is great. It’s both really easy on the eyes, and appealing to look a at. It can be linked with iTunes, Amazon, and GooglePlay accaunts. And they give you up to 5 free movies just for linking Accounts. And, if you have a Disney Movies account too then when you buy or redeem Disney, Pixar, Lucas studios or Marvel movies then you get points on your Disney account. However, Disney is making a change right now, this app “Movies Anywhere” used to be (and for a limited time longer will be), part of Disney’s Movies Anywhere, but the Disney portion is closing by, like, the 18th or 28th maybe of this month, January, I think. And, until then I’ve been having a really head cracking experience with stuff like signing in a that like ( even reset my password repeatedly but still had difficulty), and without an active password, can’t contact them though email to find out why. Finally found a phone # so it’s cool. Apparently no new Disney accounts will be accepted anymore. So until the Disney end date, there may be some more difficulties for people.
BUT OTHER THAN THAT I LOVE THIS APP!!!
Constant licensing errors 2/5
Almost every time I hit “play” it says licensing error. I often have to press play several times before it works.
Please fix 4/5
Great app been waiting for somewhere to put all my movie downloads but how can i link more then one iTunes account? Cant get all my purchases.
It is not free 1/5
I would hope that it's movies for actually free but you have to sign up
Very disappointed 1/5
We love the Disney anywhere ap so that our kids could watch movies on the go. With the new ap movies anywhere we can’t get the ap to work or even download on our devices due to them being older models and being told that our devices can’t support that program. I guess we won’t be using or buying many more Disney products.
Edit to review/response:
Thank you for your complete lack of a helpful answer. I am aware of the minimum requirements, they are the reason that we now are unable to watch our Disney movies on your subpar platform
I liked it better as Disney Anywhere 2/5
If you are looking for a basic app to gather your movies in one location and you have a newer device this app will most likely work for you. I had this app when it was just Disney Anywhere and it worked better for me then. I have a few basic complaints...
-I have an older iPad that I allow my children to use. With this app you cannot download movies onto it. I can use other apps to download movies (i.e. Amazon and iTunes) so I know it's possible. For whatever reason movies anywhere doesn't allow downloading for older devices. This makes this app useless to me on road trips.
-I also don't like this app because they are constantly advertising horror movies on it. I don't find this appropriate for small children. I liked Disney Anywhere for this reason.
This is the best app ever!
Needs A Family Plan 3/5
This is a well made app but there is one specific and glaring problem with it. My wife and I have multiple accounts with specific providers (2 iTunes and 2 Amazon accounts) so we have movies stretching across both of our accounts. Since you can only sign up one provider per account, it means that we are missing movies in the other person’s app. This app would be so much better if we could add all of our plans to one app to stream all of our content.
Can’t play movies 1/5
Today, I redeemed IT 2017, and it keeps saying there’s an error with licensing
I'm not clear why I would use this app. It duplicates what ever other app does and it only accepts Itunes only payment.
Awesome concept, terrible delivery! 1/5
The ability to share platforms for watching purchased digital video content is looooong overdue. The web based version of Movies Anywhere works great on PC with Edge browser and works even better on Android! However, the IOS based app appears to be nothing more than an after thought! The controls are not intuitive or fluid as the Windows and Android based platforms. Worse, the ability to choose or switch between profiles is entirely absent from this version, which disastrously means....NO PARENTAL CONTROLS TO CONTENT, ACCOUNT SETTINGS OR PURCHASES! That essentially makes this app worthless for my family, as the kids exclusively use our iPad! :(.
Licensing Error 2/5
For probably 1/3 if my videos, it gives me a “licensing error” when I try to play them. What’s the point of this app / service if you can’t play the videos you own...?
Not compatible with you iTunes purchases 2/5
Movies anywhere only supports movies that are in their app. None of my iTunes movies show up in this app. Emailed them and was told only certain movies will show up at all. I thought this app was supposed to combine ALL digital films into one app. Seems like a waste if my iTunes movies wont show. If it weren't for my huge digital Disney collection I would delete the app and never think twice about it again.
Can't link retailer accounts 1/5
I want to link with my Vudu account, but this app won't recognize my username and password for Vudu. My iTunes account linked easily, but most of my movies are on Vudu. I also can't post a question for app support with movies anywhere, to have this problem solved. The app concept is great, but I'm not pleased with the finished product.
By The real Goldengriff
Thanks for getting my movies together.....,,
iPhone X 2/5
This app is updated for iPhone X but only when your not watching a movie. I like being able to change the aspect even if the little notch on top cuts a little bit off.
Can’t trust it. 2/5
I can’t trust this app because I have realized it is missing so many of my movies and not connecting even probably 75% of them. I have over 50 movies from vudu alone and movies anywhere shows 36 titles total. I also connected google play, iTunes and Amazon.
Amazing the app even opens 1/5
By czr the master
It desperately needs iPhone X support I mean the phone has been out for months it’s not that hard to reformat a platform so it fits in a screen
