Fox, Warner, Universal to join Disney's 'Movies Anywhere' service - report

Wednesday 11 October 2017 | 13:43 CET | News
A number of leading Hollywood movie studios including  20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. and Universal Pictures  have signed up to Disney's Movies Anywhere service, according to unnamed sources cited by Bloomberg. Disney launched the service in 2014 while most other studios supported a rival format called UltraViolet. However, the company has been spent the past year trying to persuade other studios to join Movies Anywhere in an effort to compensate for plunging physical DVD sales and a disappointing year at the box office, said the report.
