    Ha. I didn't say that I was happy about it, just that it's a big deal.

    I'm not sure what the guys said here but this gal just used the flixster app on my iPad to watch Austin Powers so yes it does work. Looping site is incorrect.

    Just noticed the animated scooby doo series is coming to Ultraviolet! My children will love It.

    Maybe they mean that the non streamed copies don't work.

    Poppycock. I downloaded and played most of two movies from St Louis to Las Vegas on the way to CES last week using my ipad and 2 UV files. They played fine.
