Connect your Apple ID to your Movies Anywhere account

Connect your Apple ID to your Movies Anywhere account and watch eligible movies across all of your devices.

The Movies Anywhere service lets you browse and watch your collection of eligible Disney, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros movies, along with bonus material and exclusive videos, from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC, or Apple TV.

You can access Movies Anywhere on your computer or from the free app, which you can download from the App Store for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV 4K, or Apple TV (4th generation).

When you connect your Movies Anywhere account to your Apple ID, you can access eligible movies across all of your devices. 

Your Apple ID can have up to ten devices (including five computers) associated with it for music and video playback. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID.

  1. Open the Movies Anywhere app on your iOS device and sign in.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, tap More, then tap Manage Retailers.

Renew or disconnect Movies Anywhere

Every two years, Apple must ask for your permission to share the eligible movies that you buy from the iTunes Store with Movies Anywhere. Any new, eligible iTunes Store purchases that you make won't be shared with Movies Anywhere until you renew your consent.

You can also disconnect from Movies Anywhere at any time. After you disconnect your Apple ID from your Movies Anywhere account, you can still watch movies that you bought from Movies Anywhere or the iTunes Store in either place, but you can only watch new movies that you buy in the application in which you purchase them.

You can also disconnect your Apple ID in the Movies Anywhere app. Open the app and go to More > Manage Retailers, then tap Disconnect under iTunes.
