It's official: Digital movie collection service Movies Anywhere, owned and operated by Disney, has added Microsoft Movies and TV as its sixth digital retail partner. FandangoNow, Fandango's on-demand video service, came aboard in March.

Movies Anywhere movies will show up within Microsoft's Movies & TV apps, even if they were bought on competing platforms. With this new compatibility, you're no longer limited to watching the movies you've purchased through Microsoft on an Xbox One or a Windows 10 PC. It is available in more than 20 countries.

The Movies Anywhere logo now appears on eligible movies. If you've been waiting on setting up a Movies Anywhere account, now is a good time to do so, as X-Men: Days of Future Past is arguably the best movie in the franchise and definitely worth watching. Movies Anywhere users will get an exclusive sneak peek at a bonus feature from Deadpool 2.

"This launch has been highly anticipated by our most passionate movie fans, and we are very excited to bring Microsoft into the Movies Anywhere family", said Karin Gilford, General Manager, Movies Anywhere.

The ability to buy a movie or show on one platform and watch it on any device is already pretty compelling by itself, but Microsoft is sweetening the pot for users by giving away X-men: Days of the Future Past for free, a movie which has an 8/10 rating on IMDb. "We are thrilled that Microsoft now supports Movies Anywhere", said Pedro Gutierrez, director of Microsoft Movies and TV. "Microsoft Movies & TV allows you to watch the newest movies across your favorite devices - like Xbox - before streaming services or disc, and without subscription or membership fees".
