Another content provider has joined the cross-platform digital locker system.
Movies Anywhere has announced the addition of Comcast Xfinity TV to its lineup of supported digital retailers. The service is the first pay-TV provider to support the platform, joining previously compatible stores like VUDU, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Movies & TV, and FandangoNOW.
"Comcast is one of the country's leading pay TV providers with a customer base that, like ours, consists of people who are passionate about the movies they love," said Karin Gilford, General Manager, Movies Anywhere. "We are thrilled to now include Comcast's Xfinity TV customers among those who can benefit from Movies Anywhere's ability to bring their favorite movies together in one place that can be accessed across a multitude of devices using the Movies Anywhere app and across Xfinity TV platforms."
Movies Anywhere allows users to buy, redeem, and store digital films from five major studios and then sync those titles across multiple retailer apps and playback devices. The platform supports a growing collection of over 7,500 digital titles from Disney, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Universal, and Sony. With newly added support for Comcast's Xfinity service, Xfinity customers can now combine their eligible movie purchases from the Xfinity Digital Store with their libraries from other Movies Anywhere retailers, enabling access to all their supported titles through the Xfinity X1, the Xfinity Stream app, and other Xfinity TV platforms.
"Xfinity X1 is the only platform that provides customers with seamless, integrated access to all of their entertainment choices within one user interface, whether that content is live, on demand, streamed, recorded, rented or owned," said Daniel Spinosa, Vice President, Entertainment Services, Comcast Cable. "And by joining Movies Anywhere, Xfinity TV customers can now easily link their accounts across participating digital retailers and watch their consolidated digital library on X1, or anywhere in the country via the Xfinity Stream app and portal."
