While that may be true regarding new releases, in the case of Paramount it is their back catalog as evidenced here that is of interest to many movie collectors - https://www.vudu.com/content/movies/...t%2520Pictures

How many people would you technically be able to share iTunes with? I guess like how many Apple TV devices can be set up at once and can you watch the same movies at the same times?

One option to consider, is that you can be logged into a service more than just once.

So for example, I have a friend I can trust. If my FandangoNow account is activated on his streaming player (a Samsung for example), he can watch my MA titles there.

I can be in another city, and still use FN myself on another device (a Roku).

Now, Vudu limits the log-ins to 5(?), not sure what the limit is for FN.

But that, off the top of my head, is one way to share (without creating an extra MA profile) my MA collection via FN. It depends, of course, on whether you trust that person or not (i.e. they will have to use your FN password to access FN)

I saw someone on a different site "gift" their MA library to another user by linking their Vudu account to the person's MA account. And then once the content transfers, unlinking again. I guess you have to wait 6 months to relink a service though?

That sort of linking used to occur between users all the way back in the DMA days. Naturally Disney takes a dim view of such "sharing", so beware (I've never done it, and never would; it's definitely not authorized).

If I remember right there was once a crack-down by Disney based on the previous DMA linking.

But yes, you have to wait 6 months to relink the MA account to any other Vudu account.

The answer to your question would depend on if you are talking about passing out your own iTunes username/password or setting up a Family Share.

With the Family Share method each person is still using their own Apple/iTunes account so the normal per account limits apply.

At some point afterwards, Google removed the option to share movies imported into Google via Movies Anywhere after you set up family sharing. Movies and TV shows purchased via Google still works.

Is there any way around this?

I've been sharing MA movies in my Google Family share all along, just added 'The First Avenger [4K]' yesterday.

You do have to manually toggle family sharing on for those titles but the "Vudu Catalog" Chrome extension can do that for you, or load up an Android device with all the Google accounts in question logged in (you can switch between them) and use the "Not shared' option to see if there are any 'Not shared' titles and then click that title and toggle sharing on.

I just tried the extension you mentioned above, and it's changing my titles to shareable.

I don't have any one to share my Google account with, but I'm happy to know it can be changed.

EDIT: After finishing, they're still not marked shared.

I'm also seeing the 'share' option in iOS - I'll have to try it the next time I enter an MA code.

Perhaps we should take this discussion to this thread though?

https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread.php?t=307654

Just a quick update. As I stated before, I haven't purchased anything from Google other than free TV episodes in years, so it didn't hit me until early this morning, but the payment method I had associated with Google had expired.

I updated it, and it still didn't want to work, but I tried again about 10 minutes later, and this time, the titles became shareable again.

Thanks for letting me know it wasn't working correctly, as I have 908 MA movies, and probably at least a third wasn't marked shareable (not that it matters since they're not being shared with anyone, but just in case, it now works).

UV sharing is now officially dead (for better or worse).

MA sharing is all we have at the moment so let's make the most of it!

Sadly this thread seemed to have died a horrible death. I do greatly miss the UV sharing from yesteryear, while it didn't include Disney and its subsidiaries it did include Paramount, Lionsgate, MGM, and several smaller studios. And with Disney Movies Anywhere I could at least get my, at the time nearly 100+ Disney movies to other services. Now I am lacking about 1000 movies between the non-participating studios and and an average of a dozen movies per participating studios that just aren't eligible.

Now with Movies Anywhere having its own app on TVs activating through a code not password sharing is nice and allows me to focus on connecting accounts for easier movie buys while price comparing. Though I am not much of an Apple user, redeemed a few codes there when you could redeem in multiple places or to get UHD upgrades early in the DMA and MA days. I would connect it to a family members iTunes but all of them depend on me for movies so they don't have anything that would benefit me. Would love to have sharing again so I could gain movies more quickly (and cheaply). Any ideas?
