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.

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".
