AMC Theatres, the largest theatrical exhibitor in the United States and the world, today announced that the Company is extending its business into the home. Beginning today, AMC Stubs members in the United States can rent or buy approximately 2,000 of the most popular digital movies from the top Hollywood studios at AMCTheatres.com as well as on the AMC Theatres mobile, connected devices and SmartTV applications.
To celebrate the launch, AMC Stubs members who use their first transaction to buy or rent a movie distributed by Lionsgate or Paramount Pictures can choose an additional three movies from a selection of that studio’s films.
AMC has agreements with every major Hollywood studio to make selections of their movies available for digital rental and purchase, including both new release and popular catalogue movies. New releases will become available on AMC Theatres On Demand the same time they are available digitally nationwide, following the traditional theatrical window set by each studio for each movie.
As part of a first-ever cross-platform marketing partnership between AMC Theatres and AMC Networks, AMC Stubs members will also be able to find movies from AMC Networks’ IFC Films and RLJE Films catalogues on the AMC Theatres On Demand platform beginning in late 2019. Through the partnership, AMC Theatres will also promote AMC Networks’ targeted streaming services Acorn TV, Shudder, Sundance Now and UMC directly to moviegoers, including more than 20 million AMC Stubs households.
Movies can be purchased or rented through AMCTheatres.com, the AMC Theatres mobile app, Roku and SmartTVs with more services and devices to be added in the near future.
AMC Theatres On Demand rentals and purchases both earn AMC Stubs points that members can accumulate towards in-theatre rewards. AMC Stubs membership will be required for all digital transactions.
