Microsoft has announced today that they will be joining the Disney-lead Movies Anywhere service, a service that aggregates digital movies you’ve accumulated into one larger library. The service already includes iTunes, Google Play Movies, Amazon Video, Vudu, FandangoNow, and now has added Xbox Video to its collection.
What this means is that movies you get on the Xbox Live service or Microsoft store can now be stored in this library and viewable on other non-Xbox and non-Windows devices. It also works in reverse, where you can watch those movies you buy elsewhere on the Xbox One.
The service is now officially live after bit of a false start this morning. Unfortunately, Movies Anywhere is only for U.S. customers right now.
