Disc to Digital and Mobile to Digital no longer work on FOX titles as of 11-01-2019. While this is likely due to Disney's ownership, it also may have some to do with UV's shutdown and now that VUDU is up for sale.

That's a bummer. I wish I had heard of this before the cutoff date -- I would've double checked to see if there were any titles I wanted to convert. Oh well.

Well the disc to digital was going away at the end of the year, but I was trying to get a few more in while I'm on vacation. It won't let me checkout. I called customer service, and it looks like they shut it down early.

That’s odd. I had some titles in my cart, and it just let me purchase them.

I did get burned on the Fox thing, as I put Avatar in my cart a little while ago then it became ineligible.

My understanding from this forum,other forums and a few articles the Go/In-Home Disc to Digital app is the one Vudu is getting rid of 1/20 .But the D2D Vudu app on your phone or tablet is still available but still limit to 100 scans or buys a year.Or at least we'll find out in about 4 days.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

Most of my D2Ds so far have been BD conversions, but before the end of the year I went through a batch of my old DVDs and converted them, basically choosing the ones I’d pull the trigger on if they were in a $4.99 sale. Obviously I couldn’t do the Disney etc. titles, and a fair number were rejected because they were old UPCs or whatever, and I didn’t convert if they had an SD option only. But I was pretty pleased with the bunch I was able to convert, including an old version of Touch of Evil, Boogie Nights, Deliverance, Cuckoo’s Nest, and a lot of classics that were probably unlikely candidates for sales (Gilda, Anatomy for a Murder, River Kwai, Ben Hur, noir, Westerns—thanks, Warner combo sets with individual UPCs!). I have no idea if I’m anywhere close to my 100 annual quota, but I figured I might as well get them in just in case.

Plus, while I’ve been reluctant to dump the BDs I’ve converted, it’s easier to dump the DVDs since they’ve now been upgraded in quality, barring significant loss of bonus features.

I've brought 70 movies so far this year using D2D. Just 30 more to reach the 100 limit.

I'm struggling to get the new Android app to work. It just says invalid photo every time I try to take a photo.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

I connected my Vudu to iTunes so my movies auto-populate in iTunes. Is there a way to further upgrade to 4K versions when applicable?

The iOS app stopped working a while ago so I had to switch to the browser version on my phone.

Not for movies obtained through the D2D program.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

The following titles have had HDX added to their disc conversions. They more than likely still play SD until Vudu adds their HDX transfers, but you can get that HDX locked in now in case they pull the title before they add the HDX transfer. A few are from BR, too, so cheaper! The majority (if not all) are Starz/Anchor Bay/Lionsgate titles.
Is anyone interested in this kind of info and related disc news?

A Nanny for Christmas (2010)
After Sex (2007)
American High School (2008)
Blue Seduction (2009)
The Dead (1987)
Dead Leaves (2004)
Demon Hunter (2005)
Devil's Den (2006)
The Fallen Ones (2005)
Finder's Fee (2001)
Gangster's Paradise: Jerusalema (2010)
The Garden (2005)
Gothic (1987)
iMurders (2008)
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2008)
The Killing Machine (2009)
Lower Learning (2008)
Megan is Missing (2011)
My Teacher's Wife (1995)
Opposite Day (2009)
Pierrot Le Fou (1965)
Room 6 (2005)
Southie (1999)
Staunton Hill (2009)
The Toothfairy (2006)
Turbulent Skies (2010)
Vlog (2008)
Wagons East! (1994)
Walled In (2008)

I'm finally getting use to hitting the shutter to take the pic, whereas before it would auto-take.
would not matter as much, but I have thousands of movies.

My

Next of Kin HDX MA
