Disney is shuttering its Disney Movies Anywhere service Wednesday, and urging users to transfer their movies to the newer Movies Anywhere locker service. However, consumers won’t actually lose their movies even if they miss the shut-off date.
Disney Movies Anywhere first launched in 2014 as a digital locker for Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movies. The service allowed users who had purchased these titles on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, or Google Play to transfer them to the Disney Movies Anywhere locker, and then stream and download them through the service’s apps. Users were also able to unlock digital copies of movies they had bought on DVD or Blu-ray via included download codes.
