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

I thought you guys said the Flixster app was live on iOS???? http://www.loopinsig...-apple-support/

The problem for Apple users is that it doesn’t work on iPhones, iPads or iPod touches, effectively locking UltraViolet out of use of some of the most popular portable electronics available today. And with Apple’s iTunes as a direct rival to UltraViolet, I think it’s safe to assume that Apple’s in no hurry to do a 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.
