Movies Anywhere has beta-launched a new platform called “Screen Pass” that enables registered users the ability to share up to three movies monthly with friends and family for free.
The platform, which acts as a middleman for digital services iTunes, Google Play, Prime Video, Apple TV, Vudu, FandangoNow, Verizon and Microsoft Movies & TV, includes movies from four major studios: Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures and Disney/Fox.
Screen Pass gives a friend or family member (who must registered) seven days to accept the invitation, and another 14 days to watch the title. Once started, the user has 72 hours to finish watching the movie. A title can be shared un-limited times.
The beta launch, which began March 17, features about 6,000 movies that can be shared.
