Get Big Hero 6, The Lego Movie, Jason Bourne, Ghostbusters (2016) and Ice Age FREE through 'Movies Anywhere'
Get Big Hero 6, The Lego Movie, Jason Bourne, Ghostbusters (2016) and Ice Age free when you connect 2 video streaming services to the newly launched 'Movies Anywhere'.
Disney has partnered with several other major studios to allow you to combine movies you have redeemed or purchased on multiple accounts through a single service called 'Movies Anywhere'. If you connect one account (eg. Google account, US iTunes, Amazon, Vudu) to the service you get Ice Age and Ghostbusters, if you connect another account you get the other 3 movies as well.
Currently 'Movies Anywhere' is technically only available to US customers so you will need need to use a geo-blocker or VPN to sign up to the service with a US IP address (I recommend using Opera browser which comes with a free built in VPN). Once you have signed up however you can stream videos from the service without the need for such things, using any Australian connection.
The great thing about this service, besides the free movies, is that you can combine your movies from your Google, iTunes, Amazon and Ultra Violet (if you use Vudu) accounts into a single service. Any movies you connect will then be synced across your accounts for all connected services as well. For example, the free movies I obtained through Movies Anywhere now also show up in my Google and iTunes accounts, alongside all movies showing up in my Movies Anywhere account. Looks like a great service for those of us sick of managing multiple streaming account purchases. Here's hoping it comes to Australia officially in the future but for now signing up with a US IP seems to get things up and running just fine.
ANOTHER awesome thing about linking accounts is that if you have a US iTunes account many of your movies will be upgraded from HD to 4K HDR for free. I just tried this by syncing with my Vudu account and all my Ultra Violet account movies showed up in iTunes and on my Apple TV, many of them now watchable as 4K HDR versions.
