Starting today, AMC Theater on Demand will be shutting down, and members can now rent and even purchase premium AMC selections via the Vudu streaming platform. Vudu already offers an extensive collection of over 200,000 films and television series, boasting the largest collection of 4K UHD titles, all available for free.
“As the first theatrical exhibitor in the United States to bring first-rate films through the life cycle from theatres to home, we at AMC take pride in having served our guests through a multitude of platforms during the pandemic,” said Nikkole Denson-Randolph, Senior Vice President, AMC’s Content Strategy & Inclusive Programming. “As we continue to evolve our business and remain focused on Making Movies Better by enhancing the theatrical experience, we’re even more excited to expand our relationship with a trusted partner, who will ensure a continued preeminent experience for those consumers who are streaming their post-theatrical movies at home.”
AMC Theater on Demand customers can link their accounts to Vudu to create a seamless viewing experience. Most previously purchased films will be automatically upgraded to Vudu’s highest-quality format, including 4K Ultra HD for no additional cost. Additionally, for the first month, new Vudu customers will get 15 percent off every purchase.
“AMC Theatres has been a valued exhibition partner of Fandango’s for more than two decades, and we’re thrilled to now offer our Vudu streaming service to AMC Theatres On Demand consumers,” said Cameron Douglas, Fandango’s Vice President of Home Entertainment. “As consumers’ appetite for top-notch entertainment continues to grow, as well as their desire to watch the best movies both on the big screen and at home, this incredible collaboration with AMC Theatres will ensure that fans get seamless access to the premium content they love and crave.”
To migrate existing AMC content libraries to Vudu, AMC Theaters On Demand consumers can link their current Vudu account using the same email address or create a new Vudu account, allowing for a unified and seamless movie-watching experience all in one place.

Movie, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Evil Dead Rise, and Scream VI to list a few. Check out Vudu’s full catalog and get more details about this partnership by visiting its website.
