This is somewhat true. The MA app itself does not currently support UHD. However, it will transfer UHD rights. For example, if you purchase a UHD movie at Vudu, it will transfer to other retailers in UHD.

Here's an excellent interview with the General Manager of Movies Anywhere. Great straightforward questions and answers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cO5pQtCO8d8

Got to say, this is very exciting! It's really amazing to see the holy grail of digital movies actually happening (buy a movie anywhere and play it anywhere). We're almost there, just need to add more studios and retailers, and it sounds like they're intent on making that happen.

I just hope this is easier to use than UV and Flixter and all the other annoying ones they had a few years ago...

I'm sure you all received the same message from Disney, but posting the "short" version here. It is the notice informing DMA account holders that Disney is ending DMA and provides the instructions for moving content to Movies Anywhere (not included in this post).

From Disney:

We’d like to notify you that the Disney Movies Anywhere service has changed and will be closing in the near future. For a limited time, you can continue to watch your movies through our website and apps, but you can no longer add new movies to your Disney Movies Anywhere Collection.

Starting today, our members can join and transfer their movie collection to a brand new service, Movies Anywhere. With Movies Anywhere, you can re-link to your digital providers, and bring together your movies from Disney, Fox, Sony Pictures, Universal, and Warner Bros.

The email then goes on to explain the content transfer process.


Jim

We require support from Movies Anywhere, and their focus for launch was understandably on the largest online retailers. We do plan to have support in the future, and we look forward to working with them.

In the meantime, UltraViolet continues to work just as it has. Itís worth noting that there are some differences between the two platforms. For example, some studios that support Movies Anywhere donít support UltraViolet, and vice-versa. (Where they support both, generally your UltraViolet titles will also become Movies Anywhere titles.) Other differences: right now, Movies Anywhere supports SD and HD, but not UHD. Itís also US-only at this time.

Weíll have more to share at a later time.
Really hope this doesn't take long. I think this will be the gating factor for me buying into K.

I suspect some of reason K never got DMA or Fox UV is because MA was already pending.

With regards to UHD content rights, they are currently porting through MA (although sometimes with issues). WB titles I have in VUDU in UHD gave UHD rights in iTunes, for example. Folks buying Spider-Man Homecoming in UHD or redeeming codes are seeing that go through in UHD, too. It's been stated that UHD right transfer through, it's just the current MA viewing apps don't do UHD yet themselves.
