How to Share Your Movies with Screen Pass
Movies Anywhere is a service that gives you a place to digitally store movies you've bought, either on DVD or through a streaming service. Screen Pass is a function within this site that allows you to share these movies with others. It's completely free to sign up for, and by using Screen Pass your friends or family can have access to your movies for free.
Create an account on Movies Anywhere. You can do this by clicking Join Now in the top right corner of the site.
To be eligible for Screen Pass, you must redeem or buy a movie. To redeem a movie, go to Redeem and enter a Movies Anywhere code from a DVD or Blu-Ray which includes the code insert. You can only share a movie if it is eligible for Screen Pass.
To buy a movie, either search for one or select one on the Explore page. Then click See Retailers for a list of streaming services where you can buy the movie. Once you select one and buy a movie at your chosen service, it will appear in your Movies Anywhere library.
Click the My Movies tab to see your Screen Pass-eligible movies. Select the movie you'd like to share with someone.
Click the Screen Pass button and you'll be given the option to Send a Screen Pass to a friend.
Your friend will have 7 days to accept the Screen Pass. If it's not accepted, the pass will be returned to you to use again. Once accepted, they will have 14 days to watch the movie, and 72 hours to finish the movie once it's been started. You will have 3 Screen Passes to use a month, and unused passes don't roll over.
You will then receive a URL link to send out by clicking Send A Screen Pass. This will give whoever you send the pass to access to this movie. They will also need to create a Movies Anywhere account in order to accept the movie.
You can share this URL anywhere, but only one person may accept and use the pass. Once it's been accepted, the URL becomes void.
How to Share a List Of Your Movies
If you don't know which movie you'd like to send out, you also have the ability to send someone an entire list of your Screen Pass-eligible movie collection which they can then choose from. The same time frames and rules apply for accepting and watching a movie from this list as it does for sharing a singular movie.
Go to your Settings by clicking on the arrow next to your profile picture.
In the app, tap your profile picture and select Settings.
Then select Screen Pass.
Click Share List of My Eligible Movies
Then select Use a Screen Pass. You will then be able to send the URL to the list of your Screen Pass movies to anybody you choose.
