Disney is rumored to be expanding their Disney Movies Anywhere digital locker service to include movies from other studios such as 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, and Warner Bros. The service, which is said to be called “Movies Anywhere” and live at moviesanywhere.com, is expected to support Amazon Video, VUDU, Google Play, and Apple iTunes. If it works like the existing Disney Movies Anywhere service, it would mean that buying a movie from a participating studio through any of the major digital stores will result in the movie becoming accessible through all other video services at no additional charge.

Amazon has now linked up with Disney Movies Anywhere, the cloud-based digital movie service from Disney. This means that, if you connect your Amazon account with your Disney Movies Anywhere account, purchasing Disney movies on one video service will make the movie available on the other service for free. Launched earlier this year, Disney Movies Anywhere is Disney’s effort to unify the digital purchases of their content. Prior to today, they already work with Apple’s iTunes, Google’s Play, and Walmart’s Vudu service. Today they’ve added not only Amazon, but also Microsoft. Purchasing a Disney movie, which includes Marvel movies like The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, from any of these services will unlock the movie across all platforms and apps.
