BURBANK, Calif., Aug. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MOVIES ANYWHERE today announces that DIRECTV will be joining its robust digital retailer family*, providing another way for users to bring their favorite digital movies together from across different digital retailer accounts and platforms, all in one place.

MOVIES ANYWHERE is celebrating DIRECTV's launch with a limited-time promotion.

MOVIES ANYWHERE brings together users' movie collections from across beloved Hollywood studios, digital retailers, devices, platforms, and now DIRECTV. Additionally, MOVIES ANYWHERE recently launched a new co-viewing feature, which enables users to Watch Together via an easy-to-use synced experience across devices.

MOVIES ANYWHERE also recently launched a feature in beta, SCREEN PASS, which allows users to share their love of movies with family and friends.

"With consumers spending more time at home, MOVIES ANYWHERE will be a welcome addition for our DIRECTV subscribers," said Tim Gibson, vice president, video and application marketing.
