When the studios began offering digital copies of movies with home videos on Blu-ray and DVD, ultraviolet is one of the first services that hosted a library of titles for users. The company is now excluded.
The Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) has announced that the ultraviolet digital cabinet will close this summer. What does this mean for clients who have a collection of movies redeemed through Ultraviolet Digital Film? Learn more below.
Diversity is about exclusion of ultraviolet, but users do not have to worry about losing access to their digital library. Ultraviolet will not be dead until it's gone July 31, and provide clients with the ability to link their library with other collaborating vendors to retain their digital library. Most users with a collection of digital movies will probably do so by making their movies available in stores such as Walmart Vudu or Fandango NOW, but if you have not done so, Ultraviolet has instructions on how to do it on your site.
For those ultraviolet users who are worried about losing their movies, Vudu has gone away to convince customers that it will not affect their libraries in any way. Vudu Vice President Scott Blanksteen said:
"Customers using Voodoo for watching, renting or buying movies and TV shows will not be affected by the breakdown of the Ultraviolet platform. These customers will still be able to enjoy Voodoo content as they have been and continue to access all the movies and TV shows they have saved in their Vudu library, even after the Ultraviolet service quits.
There is a possibility that some movies and TV shows from your Ultraviolet library will not be retained after closing the service. But the company anticipates very little disturbance for customers in this respect. And if you accidentally buy a movie or TV with an ultraviolet digital copy, you'll still be able to use it by July 31st. It will also appear in any merchant library associated with the service.
The Ultraviolet Armor is not surprising. Studios such as 20th Century Fox and Universal Pictures previously used Ultraviolet as their default distributor of digital movies. But ever since Disney launched Movies Anywhere in the fall of 2017, two studios stopped publishing digital movies via Ultraviolet. Since then, Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures have joined Fox and Universal in publishing digital movies via Movies Anywhere.
If you have not yet set up a movie account at any location, this is now the best way to track your digital library of movies and TV. Most movies and TV shows redeemed through the service switch to movie libraries on iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Voodoo, FandangoNow, Microsoft Movies & TV and Xfinity. However, movies from Paramount Pictures and Lionsgate have not been cut yet because they have not supported movies anywhere. Despite this, it is still the best cabinet for digital libraries.
