Streaming movies app


Just looking for some advice on a streaming app, basically with Google Play Movies, Amazon Movies, ITune movies etc is there an app which you can sync ALL your accounts and then stream it to your TV? i researched this on google and there is an app called Movies Anywhere (https://moviesanywhere.com/) which seems to fit the bill. However seems like its available the States (not UK which is ideally what im looking for)

I know i can use a VPN create and account then download an APK for my mobile phone and login through there, however seeing all my movies have been purchased via a .co.uk i dont think i would be able stream it.

was hoping if anyone else knew something similar to this that they could recommend

Thanks for looking

I was looking for the same sort of thing, and thought Movies Anywhere might be the answer, but as you've found, it isn't. It has meant that I can get to my Ultraviolet titles through Google Play, but it only syncs Amazon and iTunes titles from a US account, not UK.

If anybody does find anything, I'd be interested, but I suspect down to different licensing and DRM types, such a beast probably doesn't exist.

My mate is big into this stuff and combines all his accounts on his AppleTV, and went to the trouble of getting someone in the US to create a MA account for him.

As far as I can tell from him there isn't a good alternative over here.

Just to add as well, that once you have a Movies Anywhere account and the App (which is admittedly a faff), you can view movies without a VPN as MA doesn't do any geo location stuff or region checking. And you can cast from the app as well. I use this method and buy digital codes.

Obviously, as you have noted, you can only sync and add US purchased movies with MA, so if you are looking to sync UK purchases, as you have found, there isn't anything out there sadly.

I'm sure this will change, but we seem years behind.
