Is there a press release or media link discussing this?

Unfortunately, no. I was going off of this post here: https://plus.google.com/115939350275...ts/C55hxmW9fgu

The Comcast thing still hasn't formally been announced yet. I was hopeful we might see K joining by the end of the year. Still sitting the bench while building my iTunes/MA library with my fingers crossed.

Hi All,

It is not up to Kaleidescape it is up to Disney. If/when they get added it will be when Disney says so not when Kaleidescape want to.

Seems to me that discussions between KScape and MA should have already happened. If the plan is to put it in somewhere down the line, fine, we do not need a date.

We NEED a "Yes we have been in contact with MA... We are on the list, and it WILL happen we just do not have a date yet."

or

"Yes we have been in contact with MA... And it does not appear that we will be integrating with that service."

Simple, this would then give a lot of us peace of mind so that we can purchase MA titles from the KScape store and EVENTUALLY have them available on other streaming services like iTunes / Vudu.

Without some sort of notice, it is very hard to buy MA titles from KScape at all. Period.

A significant loss of revenue for KScape and their policy of no longer talking with their clients!!!

K has already said that they have contacted MA and been told that they are negotiating with the large retailers first. Hence, K doesn’t yet know what the answer will be until MA is willing to talk.

At least that is my take reading between the lines.

It's not really fair to say that "K has already said..." when, you know, they haven't. It would indeed be nice if K provided actual details on what's going on with MA, so that reading between the lines wasn't necessary. It would be nice to know they had an actual commitment to adding MA rights, and that it came down to negotiations with MA. All I've seen from them is that it "may" be added in the future.

Because my reading between the lines is that adding MA rights doesn't necessarily benefit K. The exact opposite is entirely possible. As you may have noticed with the elimination of the Alto from the K lineup, and no disc drive planned for the Strato, we're getting closer and closer to the situation where, if you want to add a movie to your Kscape, it's got to be purchased from the K store.

Maybe that's what it takes for K to remain an ongoing enterprise. I don't know. If it is, then, it's something we'll have to accept if we want K to thrive. But, frankly, if that's the case, then I'd be happier if they just said it. We all want them to succeed. Just give us some clue as to what's going on.

MA relaunched Oct 12th, 2017... Originally, it was Disney Movies Anywhere and has been around since 2014.

So over a year has passed now with no official word from K!

The fact that you can buy DMA / MA movies on the KStore indicates that there is a relationship, has been a relationship!

We have all been patient, but it is time that someone provide us with an official update on the status of the integration with Movies Anywhere.

I agree. Some form of official communication is due. Universal has stopped providing UV for the most part and looks like other studios are following the same slowly.

If K is going to be a content island, I would like to know. I am buying movies on K store with the assumption MA will be added soon.

If MA will not be available, it will change my strategy and I am sure so will it for many others.

As much as I love the K interface and hate the discs, if the alternative is content island with K, I would prefer the safety of Discs with the portability of MA.

I do agree that some official communication is due from K.

I simply will not buy a movie that does not come with digital rights. And that goes for any retailer, not just K. In the last few years, we've seen the following EST retailers close down: CinemaNow, Flixster, Target Ticket, and K temporarily. Any purchases that did not have digital rights would be lost. When we have a system like Movies Anywhere (and UltraViolet), buying movies outside of it just doesn't make sense.
