Four years after AMC Theatres launched its on-demand streaming service, AMC Theatres On Demand, the company is now transferring its entire library of films over to Vudu, the Fandango-owned digital video on-demand service.
Vudu announced Thursday that it’s the official new streaming destination for AMC Theatres On Demand, giving users access to over 200,000 movies and TV shows, including the latest hit titles like “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” “John Wick: Chapter 4,” “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves,” “Avatar: The Way of Water” and more.
AMC Theatres On Demand users will no longer be able to watch, purchase or rent titles on the AMC Theatres On Demand apps or website.
Instead, users will have to create a Vudu account to purchase new titles as well as move over their existing AMC content library.
According to the AMC website, users have until August 31 to transfer their existing movie collection over to Vudu.
AMC Theatres On Demand users that are already on Vudu will also be able to link their accounts.
New Vudu customers get 15% off every purchase during the first month of using the service.
“Today marks a noteworthy partnership for both companies.
AMC is the largest theater chain in the U.S., with 600 theaters and approximately 200 million customers.
Vudu is among the most popular digital video on-demand services, with 60 million registered users,” says TechCrunch.
Statements from AMC Entertainment on New Streaming Platform Partnership
“AMC Theatres On Demand is proud to announce our new partnership with Vudu.
We have selected Vudu as our partner to continue providing exceptional On Demand movie rentals and purchases to our guests, as AMC will no longer offer this service independently.
AMC guests can now gain access to an even more extensive movie library, featuring thousands of FREE titles, 4K UHD quality, Dolby Atmos, and more.”
Vudu offers more than 200,000 new releases and catalog movies and TV shows to rent or buy, including the most extensive collection of 4K UHD titles, plus thousands of titles to watch for FREE.
There is no subscription required, and you can watch from your favorite viewing devices.
Vudu also offers safer family viewing with Kids Mode, Common Sense Media ratings and reviews, parental controls, and more.
“Plus, if you’d like to rent or purchase additional movies, new Vudu customers get 15% off for the first month,” AMC says on its website.
The AMC and Vudu on-demand streaming platform partnership breaks barriers between traditional forms of consuming films versus today’s current modern take with online streaming.
The movie theatre industry has come a long way since the crippling events of the pandemic in 2020.
