Movies Anywhere Comes to Xfinity

Posted on December 18, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Music + Videos, Microsoft Movies & TV, Google Play Music, YouTube with 9 Comments

The Movies Anywhere service has added Xfinity as a new partner. So customers of this U.S.-based cable provider can now access their cross-service purchased movie content from their cable TV interface.

“Once you connect your Xfinity account to Movies Anywhere, your eligible movies purchased from participating Movies Anywhere digital retailers will become available through Xfinity,” the Xfinity announcement explains. And your Xfinity digital movie purchases will also be available in Movies Anywhere and through other participating synced digital retailers. It’s one library, accessible at home or on the go, at any time.”

That, of course, is the central benefit of Movies Anywhere. Today, the service works with movies from five major movies studios, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox Film, Universal, Walt Disney, and Warner Bros. And it works across Amazon Prime Video, Apple iTunes, FandangoNow, Google Play Movies & TV and YouTube, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, and, now, Xfinity too.

    The Xfinity announcements are always ridiculous. It's really only available to the 3 people that pay the ridiculous top monthly fees, like $300, for their special high tech (only two years old) boxes. Even those people probably watch movies on Apple and Amazon. And it's crazy how much they charge for the lowest tier, which then only gets 15 year old built-by-lowest-bidder boxes that were considered slow even 15 years ago. And you can't even use their (terrible) streaming app without taking a useless box!? I didn't even turn mine on for two years! But you have to have it!? Why is their business model tied to the box metric, even when it pisses customers off? It's like communism over there. They have no idea what they're doing, they just need a Potemkin village to show off to investors, look, voice control, look, modern remotes, look Movies Anywhere, but it's all a low volume sham. Even the football games are going thru Amazon now.

    It's maximum bureaucratic inefficiency delivered at luxury business cost. Like our health care, the worst of all worlds so a few billionaires can buy another empty mansion tax-free. Only in America!

    These cross-service deals are too confusing for me. Think I’ll check a book out from the library. ?
