Other Studios Join Disney Movies Anywhere

Disney Movies Anywhere, its digital movie copy service, looks to be opening its doors to other studios including the key backers of rival UltraViolet.

Bloomberg reports that 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures are joining Disney’s KeyChest storage platform, Lionsgate is reportedly interested, Paramount is arguing over financing, and no word about Sony’s involvement.

Launched in 2014, Disney Movies Anywhere enables consumers to peruse branded digital movies online and purchased them from authenticated platforms iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft and Fios by Verizon.

UltraViolet, boasting more than 20 million registered accounts, includes Fandango Now, Vudu, Kaleidescape, Fios, Sony Pictures, and Paramount.
