Default UV movies, but no UV rights for Kaleidescape

So, I ordered Crazy Rich Asians on Vudu. It's a UV title, and it now shows up in my UV library. However, it doesn't show up in Kaleidescape. I asked them about it, and was told that, even if it shows up in UV, Kaleidescape doesn't have the UV rights to that movie.

Isn't that the whole point of UV? To ensure that whatever you buy is available to each UV partner?

This seems to be a breach of contract. I've gone through the UV advertising promo material, and I don't see "some movies may only be available on some devices" anywhere. How is a consumer going to know which movies are available on Kaleidescape UV vs the rest of the world UV?

Just purchase on the store (vs. Vudu) and you will be guaranteed it will work. I think this is the best option for K and therefore for all of us.... SJ

Well, the Kaleidescape Store doesnít have the UV rights-

so there is your problem.

https://www.kaleidescape.com/movie-s...ch-asians-2018


Simple rubric for purchases:
UV= Ultraviolet
MA= Movies Anywhere

- Movie is UV licensed and K store UV Licensed? Get the Vudu title or Disc code.
- Movie is only MA licensed? Buy the movie from Kaleidescape Movie Store.
- Movie is not UV or MA licensed? Buy the movie from Kaleidescape Movie Store.
- Movie is not on the Kaleidescape Movie Store? buy at least one DV700.

Some titles I have noticed don’t get UV rights until the disc release date, that is the 20th so I would check again around then

Some don't get UV rights ever and we need to purchase twice. That is an issue, but it is not under the control of Kscape

Only where that vendor holds UV rights to the title. In this case Kaleidescape donít.

Titles that have UV rights in K are suitably identified in the store.

This. Always nice when "disc to digital" rights are included with the purchase, though. Just looked at the movie in question and nope. Not included. Pricey movie, though! Normally I'm all about buying from the K store, but for a movie like this one (which I actually have been wanting to see), I might just be in for a rental. A couple bucks at a Redbox kiosk or streaming rental versus $37 makes this decision pretty easy.

$37 for a Rom-Com is too steep for my blood. I've been able to justify high costs at times for certain films, when they're packed with 4K, Atmos/DTS:X, extras, and tons of replay value, but on this one? Prolly not.

I blame Warner Bros. on this one. Most of their newer movies on the K store seem to be similarly expensive, also lacking digital rights. Comon' WB! Get with the program! Lionsgate seems to get it with most of their stuff (even new 4K movies) being under $20.

All of the previous WB titles that I have recently purchased have UV rights:

The Meg
Oceanís 8
Tag
Ready Player One
Rampage

I think I would wait a little bit and see if the UV rights donít show up. I think someone said that they may not show up until the disc is released, so I would wait until after Nov. 20th to see what happens. WB has been really good in the past with UV rights. Some other studios not so much....

Yeah a lot of movies don’t end up getting UV rights until the disc releases

Just today Slender Man and Alpha both finally added UV and ported in 4K UHD....

Additionally some UV movies have different tokens. So even if it shows in the K store as UV it still might not crossover from the UV version bought on Vudu or that one had a code for.
