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.
