If you remember Disney expanded their portfolio last year to include movies from multiple content providers. This was a good move by the company but proved to be costly for Microsoft who had been hosting content on their Movies and TV app. However, this might soon change as Microsoft might be planning to join Movies Anywhere.
Microsoft is committed to delivering rich entertainment experiences to our customers. And we’re in discussions with Movies Anywhere about bringing their service onboard.
– Microsoft Spokesperson
This will be a good thing for Microsoft as they were left high and dry by Disney last year. However, this might not be the only good thing for Microsoft as Movies and TV is not available for mobile devices but Movies Anywhere is. This would mean that users can rent or buy movies and watch them on their Android or iOS devices. Unfortunately, Microsoft hasn’t commented much on the availability of Movies and TV app on Android and iOS devices.
