I was talking to someone who will be representing their company on Ultraviolet. He asked me to send him what I like and don't like about it so I thought I would look for more opinions about what works and doesn't before I send it on.
Here is my dislike list:
Too many inconsistencies:
Different user name and password requirements on different sites
Different ways to download/stream different films
Linking to a movie in my collection on my UV page, just takes me to the studio page where I have to login again.
Its not clear how long I can stream a title for. One year? Forever? TBD?
Its too hard to manage my content. If I want to download a movie to watch on the plane, there is no one point to do it and there is no easy way to manage the title as it doesn't show up in the video folder, its in a separate application. If I need to move it off to make room for something else, I have to re-download it. I can't just move the file off to my iTunes library or PC until I want to reload it next time.
I should be able to move a downloaded file between all the devices on my account.
My like list:
While I am squarely in the "give me a disc on my shelf" camp, I like the concept of being able to have a portable copy to take on the go.
