Everything connected. So far I'm unimpressed with the interface. Just random titles thrown into a pile though I guess it's in some sort of order by Date Purchased/Added to the original service.

I can't filter by title, date, studio, genre, etc. I'm assuming they're in some sort of order, but no way to know what's there without already knowing what's there. the items are numbered in any way so no way to tell how many items are there. If 10-20-100 went missing or 10 new items imported I'm not sure there would be a way to know.

Big pretty pictures, but I can't see a way to resize them or do a list with title/small pics. I'm assuming like most things this is done to make 4-6 inch screens happy.

None of my TV imported though I'm not sure they were supposed to.

It's the 1st day and the migration was relatively painless. One error message the first time I tried to connect VUDU. I not terribly happy with their non-optional data sharing -- no up front global opt-out for spam and marketplace offers, but I can apparently unsubscribe individually to each incoming message they send my way (how nice of them to be so nice as to to send all sort of offers they know I'll be interested in from potentially an infinite number of sites once the sharers start sharing the email address)

I think most people aren’t even bothering with the app. There’s just no need for it, really.

Connected with Vudu about 4 hours ago. My Vudu titles are showing up in other services, but not a single title from any other service has populated to Vudu yet.

EDIT: Patience paid off. My Vudu titles populated a minute or two ago. TV shows still aren't there, but I'm not positive they will transfer.
No TV shows, Jason. The platform in MOVIES Anywhere, not TV Shows Anywhere. TV is not part of the plan.

Then it's still going to be the same massive cluster f*** this digital thing has been.

I have to agree with Jason on this. I don't care that it's called "Movies" Anywhere. This is an opportunity to make all digital purchases simple for the consumer, and if TV show purchases are not included then it has failed. Personally I only have a couple of TV shows in my online library, so it doesn't affect me much. However, it's still a stupid restriction.

Even the Disney Movies Anywhere platform that was launched 3 years ago didn't include TV content. No one ever complained about that.

69 of the 97 Vudu titles I had purchased previous to Movies Anywhere are now showing in the Movies Anywhere locker. Presumably the other 28 titles are from nonparticipating studios.

All 74 titles showing in the Movies Anywhere locker are also now showing in my Amazon video library. It appears that the movies that I only own in SD on Vudu will stream in HD on Amazon, which will be nice if true.

iTunes is still only showing the movies I redeemed on iTunes. And none of the movies I redeemed in iTunes are showing up in Movies Anywhere, even after linking the account.

But I'm surprised that, as a consumer, absolutely no information has been communicated to me by any of the studios, the storefronts, UV and/or DMA.

You mean like this?

So is anyone able to use movies anywhere with there smart tv and or blu-ray/4K UHD blu-ray player? The only way I would check it out if is I can use it to watch movies on my tv. I have a tablet and even after I upgraded it I have not watched a movie on it! And I do not watch movies on my phone and it is hard to get into a movie on my pc when I could watch it on my 4K UHD TV instead. So just wondering if it is currently useable with TV's or blu-ray players.
