Do we know this for a fact at this point? I hope it's not true. As I mentioned in another post, I have UV movies obtained on Vudu that I hope to view on FandangoNow after UV folds because Vudu's print is terrible.

This statement on UV's site gives me hope:

Quote:
In most cases, your movies and TV shows will be available via the retailers linked to your UltraViolet Library at the time of UltraViolet shutdown. Linking to additional retailers can maximize your access to your Library and help avoid potential disruption.

Vudu just has to tied to UV and you are fine.

They are one and the same. Where is your UV account connected?

as has been mentioned in this thread already, you can still share on amazon, google, and apple.

if you have a uv tagged title and you link the service on which you redeemed it (example vudu), once it ports to another uv enabled service (fandangonow) it should stay in your library even when uv is gone. its just not going to get an ma tag if its not a ma title. once a studio joins ma, their catalog should become ma tag enabled.

Iím thinking UV digital copies might drop in price between now and July because they wonít redeem after that. Instead of running for the hills, I might stock up!

we dont know they wont redeem after uv ends. but there is a possibility the older uv codes already past their expiration dates could stop working, there is also a possibility they will continue to work in MA or on specific providers sites. given the codes age, that has always been a possibility. since the launching of MA we've seen most studios leaning less towards grandfathering (extending) expired codes.

I agree as well. Physical releases dont mysteriously disappear. I even buy Netflix shows on Blu-ray cause I don't completely trust that my fav shows will be available on streaming FOREVER.

Not to get off topic but people who think any media is forever amuse me almost as much as people who pop into unrelated forums to make comments of superiority when potentially bad news comes about. There's been a parade of these, we are not worthy.

Isn’t Google getting rid of Plus in April? That was linked to YouTube, so I don’t know what’ll happen with that. I even heard rumors they might be getting rid of Hangouts shortly afterwards.

I redeemed my Trek movies in iTunes and Vudu for the exclusive commentaries. In the case of Beyond, it’s STILL the only way to watch the commentary, which is particularly frustrating for me since iTunes keeps crashing when I try to run it .

FandangoNow does not maintain a transaction list for you like Vudu and MA. It is currently extremely likely that all UV items will disappear from FN once UV is dismantled.

If you ever disconnect FN from UV, all those UV titles disappear from your collection. I hope FN might change this (if even for the shut-down moment), but if you've ever contacted their customer support, you know they are not likely to lift a finger.

nobody knows when google (and if) is rolling google play into youtube. its been rumored for 2 years. the dates on hangouts demise, which was supposed to be the beginning google/music/play/plus/youtube merge keep getting kicked back. the hangouts thing is now supposed to happen in 2020. we'll see. god knows google play could use the youtube ui speed bump.

but havent heard of any plans for google to get rid of family sharing though.

I forewarned of this in past posts on discussions of streaming vs. physical media. Only weeks ago did I get emails about Sony's streaming service shutting down, now Ultraviolet. Seems they aren't expecting things to pickup anytime soon and just calling it since the introduction of Movies Anywhere by Disney, a superior service in my opinion, alongside Vudu.

No worries yet though, even if I lose all my digital copies I don't care, I have the physical media to all my movies (with the exception of about 4 digital movies I got free for signing up for stuff, but I don't care about them specifically).

Movies Anywhere and Vudu are all that's really needed to support any digital movie. (Vudu for the studios that are too stubborn to support Movies Anywhere)

Actually it was sonypicturesstore that closed, not the streaming service. That streaming service is still working today (2/1), still has a UV redeem link, still loads and plays the (Sony) UV collection. Granted you have to have a Sony device or TV with that app (called Ultra), but it was not dismantled, just that internet sales site.

Glad to see Vudu is assuring people in the U.S. Might lose some random thing or have lesser quality on a handful of things but it's in these sites' best interest to make you feel like your collection is safe. Even most Joe Schmoes wouldn't support digital purchases if they thought they'd lose them down the line I bet, and they know that, so they'll do everything they can before allowing people to lose stuff. It could happen of course... I've seen it happen with my other hobby, PC gaming... but they'll try really hard to prevent it.

My main fear with digital has always been content modification, not content loss.

Anyway... good luck to all those affected outside the U.S., hopefully it works out as well.

My fear as well, which is why if it's a movie I care about, I often have a disc set of it even though I might also own it digitally.

La sigh...

Again as per DECE and Vudu:

Keep your UV library connected to Vudu or a UV compatible etailer and you will keep a majority, if not all, of your digital library.

What would really be helpful at this stage is a tool to extract a list of all UV licenses owned, with list to include Title, Quality (SD/HD/UHD), Date obtained, Redeemed/Purchased from provider, Studio, also email of acct that it came from.
