Make sure you can actually play the titles that were FN only. I have some titles that were FN only that now show show purchased on VUDU yet there is no play option for those titles.

Yeah, it's just like yours, some can play and some can't. At least they ported over.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

It took almost no time to merge the accounts. The 30% off coupon is already added to my account.

After way too long comparing my inventories, I discovered the following in our updated VUDU/FN merged collection. Shared below in a Spoiler in case anyone else has same titles and may have same issues.

Spoiler:
  • Priceless (movie) now is in My Movie list twice
  • The Peter Sellers Collection from FN ported into VUDU without the Pink Panther 2: A Shot in the Dark
  • 2 UHD Demos from FN didn't port in
    • Standard Everest
    • Standard Voyage of Time
  • Salt Unrated came in as Salt Extended and has no play option
  • Transcendence ported in as a documentary about sports
  • Lara Croft Tomb Raider and Cradle of Life now shown as Bundle
    • Yet have Lara Croft Tomb Raider Cradle of Life as separate movie
    • These were originally procured at VUDU as separate movies so not sure what transferred to FN via UV or MA and now back from FN
  • Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride II which were previously separate are now in a Bundle
    • Likely originally bought as Bundle from FN
  • Miss Congeniality and Miss Congeniality II which were previously separate are now in a Bundle
    • Likely originally bought as Bundle from FN
  • Lorax 1972 which was HD at FN is no where to be found
    • Still have it SD (yet showing HD purchased from original import to VUDU from UV)
  • Lorax 2012 which was UHD at FN is still shown as UHD purchased at VUDU yet will only play HD
  • All titles I had that were HD via MA and showed SD Purchased now show HD Purchased yet will still only play SD
    • These were HD at FN
      • Brainstorm
      • Coma
      • Gaslight
      • Last Stand at Saber River
      • Man Who Knew Too Little
      • Man Without a Face
      • Monte Walsh
      • Supergirl
      • Time After Time
      • Time Machine (original)
  • Extreme Home Theaters: Season 1 has no play option
  • 3 missing various TV episodes
    • Not really worth hassle to get them back as they were random and freebies anyway
    • Best Thing I Ever Ate: Season 9, Episode 4
    • Lawn & Order: Season 1, Episode 1
    • Property Brothers At Home Drew's Honeymoon House: Season 1, Episode 1




I received 2 x 500 points at My Universal Rewards and nothing at Disney Movie Insiders.

Good news is that Lie to Me Season 3 that was not on VUDU previously now is there with ability to play. It showed up w/o an option to play when first merged in.

Hoping all the other Resolution Mismatches and wrong Pink Panther movie work themselves out over time. If not, I will be contacting Support.

Spoke too soon. While Lie to Me Season 3 has play buttons, it states "Failed to get playback information" when attempting to watch any of the episodes.

House of D and Life After Beth were 5.1 on Fandango but only 2-channel on Vudu. Thankfully I watched them before Fandango went under.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

Ack! You guys have freaked me out...I made a chart of all my FandangoNow titles and I'm slowly going through them all.
So far, nothing is missing and everything is playing...and a few titles have upgraded to 4K as I said earlier.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

Transferred all of my FN with no issue. The only unexpected thing that happened was a positive. A few weeks ago I bought the Heat director's cut UHD on Vudu, which is MA. After the transfer, the theatrical version UHD was also in my Vudu library. I pretty much never used FN, so I didn't even know I had that version over there.

Like everyone else, I used the 30% off coupon on Godzilla vs. Kong.

One thing that didn't occur to me: I have a FN app for my Oculus 2. Since the merger it's become literally unusable. I wonder if Vudu will release their own VR app.

History of the World Part 1 is now working on Vudu. Honeymoon in Vegas is still failing.

On the flip side, some non-MA movies I bought from the last two Golden Globes 50% off sales (Judy, Bombshell, The Farewell) now show as owned in VUDU (but not, surprisingly, as newest titles owned).

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

I only bought Movies Anywhere titles on FandangoNOW, but I went ahead and merged my accounts. The only change that I noticed is that I now have two versions of Heat and two versions of The Last Picture Show.

I also got 2 versions of Heat. One was the FOX release and I guess the other was the older WB release.

I also got 2 versions of Don't Let Go. I already had the Blumhouse movie, but it also gave me some short film also called Don't Let Go that's like 47 minutes.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

Searching my library, I found that I now have two versions of Denial (2016) and two versions of A Woman's Face (1941)

The second version of Denial is a completely different movie, and the second version of A Woman's Face isn't playable.

Is FOX the newer, bluer release?

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

I had a few Universal movies show up twice with slightly different running times, turns out the longer ones have the FBI warnings at the beginning and the other ones don’t.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

So still trying to get thought things but they seem to still be in flux as well.

For instance, when I checked a few days ago Don't Trust The B In Apartment 23 only Season 2 was playable, but last night I noticed Season 1 is now working.

I’m sure they’ll be working on stuff like that for quite a while.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

I don't know if this is the result of Vudu getting everything straightened out, but I watched Patriot Games UHD last night. When I open the Jack Ryan bundle (which I purchased on Vudu, so no migration), parts of the UI go black, but it's still navigable. Whatever. But when watching the movie, there was a slight, but perceptible delay between the visuals and the audio. I exited out of Vudu and then resumed. The issue was still there. Anyone else having any wonkiness in their library since the merger?

A Shot in the Dark has finally been restored, replacing the 2005 flick.

Now if we could only get a faceplate for the Pink Panther collection....

Yeah, I noticed that earlier this week when they emailed me on some of my conversion issues. Unfortunately, I never got a chance to watch that random Spanish language movie, and now it's gone. As for the rest, I got a few of the missing movies, but they still have an open ticket on others.

Re: FandangoNOW is moving to Vudu

The Pink Panther issue is the only issue of mine to be resolved. It's been 2 months since merger and over 1onth since I reached out to them on my issues. I've only received 1 email reply out of over 10 tickets asking for more information. I provided the requested information. Received a reply that it is being escalated. And now silence again.
