Re: Flixster / Flixstervideo - no longer providing playback or code redemption after

If the CinemaNow content or former Target content was not UV, then it is gone into the ether... Just like some of the Walmart exclusive MP3s, the Sony Connect stuff etc. It all sucks and makes me hope the $$ people paid for digital content could at least be reimbursed...

And with that, Flixster (USA) is done now.

Sounds odd that other studios are joining Disney Movies Anywhere, I always thought Disney had their own deal because they were too "special" for Ultraviolet, but now they're letting other studios in it?
I think the other studios are capitulating to Disney. Disney has their own service and doesn't need to join UltraViolet. The other studios recognized that and want a unified digital rights system for Hollywood. I am guessing that UV is slowly phased out for a DMA-like system.

How do I move my UV titles from Flixster to VUDU?

They should have already moved over if you had both VUDU and Flixster connected to the same UV account.

For now, your UV account remains unaffected. Flixster shut down, not UV.

Link your flixster and vudu accounts to your ultraviolet account? (You can do it on vudu by going to the drop down menu on the top right corner of the vudu website and clicking Ultraviolet)

I took a look at all my movies on my UV account that I got through either Flixster or Cinemanow, and thankfully only a couple of them aren't available to watch through vudu, because vudu doesn't have the movies (though some are available only to watch and not to buy, and I had to go filter through my library to find them, since you can't do a keyword search for those ones).

OK, I just signed in VUDU and yep, they're all there. Cool!

I don't think I even got an email about this. Glad it works.
