Users can only share up to three movies a month. If you want to share a movie, you must visit the Screen Pass section in the Movies Anywhere app. From the listed set of movies, you can share it with your friends and family. The receivers will get a notification that you have shared content with them. They have up to 7 days to accept the Screen Pass, and then up to 14 days to watch it. Once started they need to complete the movie within 72 hours.
Movies Anywhere is rolling out this feature today in closed beta to limited no. of users. In May, this feature will be open to everyone.
