With theaters closed down, having a movie night now means you'll be saving quite a bit in comparison. You could purchase a few of these films for less than the price of some movie tickets, and let's not get started on the cost of concessions. Purchasing your films digitally also means you don't have to worry about where they're streaming or if they might be taken off the streaming service you use.

Plus, with Movies Anywhere, you can even sync the movies you buy to all the different digital libraries you connect — and it's free. If you don't like to watch via the Apple TV app, just keep your libraries connected to Movies Anywhere and you'll be able to watch them on other apps like Vudu or Prime Video.

There are a ton of movies in the sale, from The Greatest Showman (opens in new tab) and Bohemian Rhapsody (opens in new tab) to School of Rock (opens in new tab), There's Something About Mary (opens in new tab), and Dodgeball (opens in new tab).

  • The links in the article for the sale don't work correctly. They bring up a banner about a sale but don't actually show any titles. The links for some movies mentioned in the article yield similar results. Of course I am accessing the article via Android Central on an Android phone. ;)
