If your source supports iTunes, VUDU, Amazon, or Google Play it will work.
I added my accounts.
i noted that some titles are not showing??
James Bond films for one??
Is this a known issue that will be corrected later?
MGM is not yet a part of MA
Back to vudu..
Actually I never use the digital services
Linked my iTunes, Disney Movies Anywhere, Amazon Video and Vudu accounts. The Disney titles showed up immediately, which is no surprise given that it's basically the same platform. The five free movies for linking to at least two retailers also showed up immediately. So far neither my Amazon nor my Vudu titles are showing up. However, Vudu's already showing the Movies Anywhere freebies, which is nice.
I noticed my TV titles are only showing the Ultraviolet logo still. I'm guessing this new platform is for films only? If so, I hope Ultraviolet doesn't shut down completely. I find the digital copies more useful for TV seasons than for feature films, if I'm binging something and don't feel like getting up to swap discs.
Is there a special place in iTunes to view your Movies Anywhere titles, or is it only through Apple TV?
Are Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM sticking with Ultraviolet?
I don't think you'll see optical media die out until Fios-quality broadband is available universally, even the really rural areas. Places like Alaska still have thriving video stores for the same reason.
All the titles should be merged in iTunes. They don't care where you got it from.
I had originally thought it was since Fox is distributing MGM releases.
However, that could just be an optical license.
Mgm will probably launch their own service...
MOVIES ANYWHERE? Not true- it's strictly for the USA only!
This is the BEST!!! All my HD Ultra Violet movies will stream via iTunes now in 4k! Wonderwoman , the Batmans, all the DC flicks, Goodfellas, etc. etc I will save so much money now not buying 4k discs. Thanks you Disney and iTunes or whoever is responsible for this. All my movies are now centralized and available now. And you can redeem digital codes in one place now.
Makes no sense to buy 4K discs anymore if you use iTunes!
This changes EVERYTHING.
4K streams are nice, but they still don't look as good as 4K discs. Furthermore, they still need to address enhanced audio formats like Dolby Atmos.
Also the app sound is only 2.0.
Well they certainly look better than HD or Blu-ray discs plus are FREE- so NO complaints here. Plus no need to spend an additional $25 for a very slight upgrade from the streaming 4K version.
This will definitely cut into sales of 4K discs.
Use it via iTunes . No Atmos but much, much better than 2.0.
If it meets your expectations then so be it, but I want the best audio and video presentations available to consumers. With that said, I don't understand your additional $25 comment.
Probably $25 you don't need to spend buying a UHD disc if the 4k stream you get for free is good enough for you.
Has anybody received a 4K stream for free without buying a disc? As I'm confused, are titles you have in your digital collection automatically getting upgraded to 4K if one exists?
Easy: I bought the Blu Ray of whatever which had a digital copy which redeemed as HD. iTunes with my new 4K Apple TV gives me a FREE upgrade to stream HD movies at 4K resolution (as available). The average 4K disc is $25 at least at the best buy/amazon prices I've seen- which now I will not be spending. So my 4K spending is now on hold if not caput for all of the titles in my vast library. NO need for another upgrade buy.
If you purchased the blu-ray and got a code for HD with iTunes you now get a 4K stream without any additional purchase.
Are you sure about that?
