Comcast Signs On as Movies Anywhere’s First Pay-TV Partner

Comcast’s Xfinity Digital Store has joined digital movie-collection service Movies Anywhere, with the cable giant becoming the Disney-led service’s seventh digital retail partner.

Movies Anywhere partners for the October 2017 launch were Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, Apple’s iTunes and Walmart’s Vudu. FandangoNow, Fandango’s FandangoNow on-demand video service came aboard in March, and Microsoft Movies and TV joined in August.

Comcast is the first pay-TV provider to join Movies Anywhere. Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers are now able to synchronize their accounts with Movies Anywhere,  combine eligible movie purchases from the Xfinity Digital Store with those from other Movies Anywhere digital retailers, and access them on Xfinity X1, the Xfinity Stream app and other Xfinity TV platforms.

One year after its debut, Movies Anywhere, which is owned and run by Disney in partnership with four other studios, had signed up nearly 6 million registered users who had added more than 150 million purchased movies to their collections.

For a limited time, Xfinity consumers who sync for the first time with one of the other participating Movies Anywhere digital retailers will receive a free digital copy of “Happy Feet,” a 2006 computer-animated musical family film with a domestic box office gross of nearly $200 million. Those who sync for the first time with two digital retailers also receive digital copies of “The Martian” and “The Fate of the Furious.”

“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
