    It would be nice if Disney would include their Touchstone label to DMA.

    I think this is a move to enable them to do just that. Some of those Disney mini studios have R rated fare that they probably don't want under the Disney name. This would open things up for them...

    Here's an interesting thing... Disney has a new page to redeem codes. It's much more generic and less "Disneyfied" than before.

    Haven't seen any news out of CES about it, fingers crossed.

    Don't assume it was Disney who first proposed this idea.

    Look at this article from a year ago...

    http://m.homemediamagazine.com/studios/warner-ceo-wants-meld-ultraviolet-disney-movies-anywhere-35355

    It's a move that can be mutually beneficial to both sides if it makes customers more comfortable making digital purchases, and they all know it.

    Don't assume he was talking about Warner joining Disney.....He thinks there should be one locker, not Disney's, then everybody else's..(UV)..easier for the consumer than having 2 lockers.

    “It would be my goal to bridge [UltraViolet] with what Disney is doing, so the consumer doesn’t have to guess is that a Disney movie, or is that a Fox, Sony, Paramount, Universal or Warner Bros. movie?” he said.

    "Tsujihara said Disney and other studios could maintain separate sellthrough platforms while combining cloud-based functionality on the backend. The executive said combining user data between UltraViolet and Disney would help the industry grow digital content sales."

    Noticed this in this new website's help section. Was it always there?



    What digital movies can I redeem on this website?

    Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and Touchstone Digital HD titles can be redeemed on this website. Titles released prior to June 2013 may require the Digital Copy disc. Please refer to the insert from your Blu-ray or DVD package for specific instructions.
