Movies Anywhere Announces DirecTV Launch and Free Movie Offer





Today Movies Anywhere announced DirecTV as the newest addition to its list of digital distribution partners. This partnership provides users another way for users to bring their movies from different accounts and services all in one place. This comes at an opportune time as viewers continue to spend more time inside and on their screens.

“With consumers spending more time at home, Movies Anywhere will be a welcome addition for our DIRECTV subscribers,” said Tim Gibson, vice president, video and application marketing. “Along with the limited-time offer for a complimentary digital film, we hope this makes it even easier for customers to enjoy a night-in at the movies.”

“We are thrilled to be able to expand our availability within the Pay TV ecosystem with the addition of another one of the nation’s largest providers,” said Karin Gilford, general manager, Movies Anywhere. “We know DirecTV subscribers are passionate about movies and will benefit from Movies Anywhere’s ability to bring their favorite movies together. Now, they can access their collection across a multitude of devices using the Movies Anywhere app or the DirecTV platform, regardless of where they initially purchased or redeemed.”

Movies Anywhere is running a special promotion alongside this new partnership deal. Starting now through September 9, new and existing Movies Anywhere users can pick a free movie to add to their collection when they connect any digital retailer to their Movies Anywhere account for the first time. Choose from Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Smallfoot, The Meg, The Matrix and Crazy Rich Asians as a complimentary movie to add to your library for free.

You can access the free movie offer here.

Movies Anywhere recently launched its Watch Together feature which allows you to co-view films with your friends from different devices for a synced experience that’s easy to use. It also launched Screen Pass, a beta feature that allows you to share your account with friends and family.
