MoviesAnywhere NOT UV

Just a heads-up to the group... If you redeem a movie code at MoviesAnywhere it will NOT port over to your UltraViolet account, and then won't appear for you to download in your Kaleidescape account.

Just got burned on 4 discs I got with UV codes.... So, MoviesAnywhere is definitely not MoviesEVERYWHERE. :/

Found this nice Google doc last night. I received the UHD Fifth Element as a gift and redeemed at Vudu (all ready have the BR from Kscape). Code threw an error saying I all ready owned it. Seems like Sony UHD UV codes do not redeem for UHD playback at Vudu.

So according to the doc, if I were to redeem at MA, I would get 4K playback from iTunes, Google, & Amazon but only HD from Vudu. And like above would not port to UV.

Frustrating times.

If it's Sony why not redeem through the Sony Pictures website? That way you would get it on Kaleidescape.

I did and the options were Vudu, MA, or I think Sony's store. Conflicting results as to whether the Sony store crossed over to UV.

Redeeming in Sony store will give you UV as well. Redeeming in vudu gives you uhd UV if vudu supports uhd for that movie or you will get hd uv if vudu does not. For some movies only fandango gives you uhd uv.

Redeeming in iTunes will give you access to movie in some sites like vudu, Amazon, google play and iTunes, but no uv.

You are right, this is a mess. I hope K will allow us to redeem uv codes and K joins movies anywhere. This will be perfect.

Vudu has limitations on 4K UHD content at this point:

Sony: Only three titles available in 4K UHD
Fox: No titles available
Lionsgate: No titles available

This affects read-across of digital rights.

I'll reach out to Sony and get my code back. Since I all ready had HD rights, it was wasted.

So reached out to Sony via their help number. Gave them the code and a screen shot from my Vudu account. They added the movie to my Sony library which then ported over to Kscape in about 5 minutes.

So now downloading HDR 5th Element from the store!

Thanks,

Kevin D.
