Movies Anywhere Will Soon Allow You To Share Movies With Friends

If you have a great digital movie collection, you'll soon be able to share it with your friends.


While we have streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video--among many others--there are also digital movie rental and purchasing services like Movies Anywhere. And for those of us who have extensive digital collections, you'll soon be able to share the movies in your collection with your friends.

Movies Anywhere's upcoming service, Screen Pass, will allow users to pick a movie from their My Screen Pass Eligible Movies section inside the My Movies section and share them with a friend, for a limited amount of time. You can share three Screen Passes a month. After you send one, your friend has seven days to accept it, and then 14 days to start watching the movie. Once it's started, they have 72 hours to finish it.
