Comcast and Movies Anywhere Partnership

Beginning today, Comcast’s Xfinity TV customers can sync their accounts with Movies Anywhere and seamlessly 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. Comcast is the first pay TV provider to join Movies Anywhere, the pioneering movie service that launched last year in the U.S. with an unprecedented five Hollywood studios and now – with Comcast - seven major digital retailers (Xfinity, iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV and FandangoNOW).

 

Comcast has joined Movies Anywhere in time for Xfinity TV customers to take advantage of Movies Anywhere’s current syncing offer. For a limited time, fans who sync for the first time with Xfinity, or one of the other participating digital retailers, will receive a copy of “Happy Feet.” Those who sync for the first time with two digital retailers also receive “The Martian” and “The Fate of the Furious.” For more information on this offer, visit Movies Anywhere’s website.

 

To get started, Xfinity TV customers will need to create a Movies Anywhere account on the Movies Anywhere app or website. Once logged in, they can connect their Xfinity TV account, as well as their accounts from any other participating digital retailers, to Movies Anywhere and create one centralized digital movie collection that can be accessed on Xfinity X1, the Xfinity Stream app and other Xfinity TV platforms.

With the addition of Comcast to the Movies Anywhere lineup, customers’ Movies Anywhere collections will be accessible for the first time directly on the TV through Xfinity On Demand, and on devices via the Xfinity Stream app and web portal. All Movies Anywhere users are also able to access their collections via the Movies Anywhere app and web portal on an array of additional platforms.

 

Movies Anywhere extends Xfinity TV customers’ ability to purchase digital movies across their favorite platforms and retailers, including the Xfinity Digital Store. One of the top digital retailers for new releases, the Xfinity Digital Store offers Xfinity TV customers the ability to easily purchase and access thousands of movies, many featuring enhanced extras via X1 and across devices via the Xfinity Stream app and web portal.

When is the feature of linking Xfinity purchases getting turned on to sync with Movies Anywhere? It was supposed to be in November.

I don’t think there’s been an official announcement yet.

It doesn't work.   I have entered my information on movies anywhere but nothing shows up on my x1 box in saved purchases.

I have it linked and its working but I have 2 issues. I got Venom in 4K and the support page says you will get the HD version on Xfinity but I only got the SD version and I have TAG 2018 but on Xfinity, it shows some other movie called TAG but from 2014. Everything else is fine but those 2.

Re: Comcast and Movies Anywhere Partnership

This may or may not be the best place to post this, but I have a request, can you please institute a search feature in the saved movies section of the site.  I have over 2,500 in Movies Anywhere and trying to find a specific title without a search feature is mind blowing (for lack of using other language here).  There are those of us who have huge libraries of titles, this is only a portion of what I have in the cloud actually since I also have a huge Ultra Violet library as well. 

 

I am really very pleased to have Movies Anywhere included in On Demand, it saves data usage.

 

Additionally I notice that recently purchased newly arrived titles take forever to show up in my Library, often up to 15 days or more, actually one had to be manually added by crediting my account with the price and then purchasing it independantly with Xfinity when I called due to the problem.  I also have multiple titles that are not represented in Xfinity that I own and that show up in Movies Anywhere, but I suspect that is due to licensing issues with Xfinity and the Studio (common in cloud based lockers that provide streaming service of your purchased cloud titles). 

 

For now I would be tickled pink if a search by name feature could be added and that newly added titles show up when purchased outside of the Xfinity ecosystem a bit more rapidly.  Thank you for your consideration in these matters.

We bought a physical copy of a blu-ray and it came with a digital redeem code.  It was added to MoviesAnywhere and shows on both a PC and an iPhone.  However that new movie doesn't show on the X1's menu-saved-purchases screen.  The other movies anywhere movies do, but not this one.  How often does Xfinity in general and/or the X1 update?  We tried a reboot and the movies still doesn't appear.  This has caused a MAJOR headache trying to get it working for them.
