Tie in to Ultraviolet

It would be great to have Xbox Video be a Ultraviolet provider. This way digital copies of movies could easily be redeemed and viewed with Xbox Video and movies bought on Xbox video can be viewed on a device where Xbox Video is not available.

    This sounds like a very cool feature. I am passing this on to our team for review.

        This is a top idea, and was passed for review in 2013. When is this going to be implemented?
        This would make Microsoft the one stop for media.

        they already have a tie in with disney, should be a similar concept

        This is a must with so many digital options and even now Cineplex is offering digital movie super ticket with your digital copy and your theatrical release ticket. I'd love to just buy Star Wars with my movie ticket and access as an example, but it wouldn't show up in my Films & TV library. I also already own a bunch of UV titles from other services/digital purchases. This begs the question, why would I keep buying from Films & TV if it doesn't support UV?

      • PaulPaul commented  · 

        okay I love hot movies and tv can be watch over xbox on the app on my laptop. if you could only link my unltraviolet to it. OMG it would awesome and I could actually stop using vudu.

      • Brian WhimsBrian Whims commented  · 

        As of right now, if there's ever a movie on sale on Movies and TV, I probably won't even consider buying it (unless it's Disney) since it won't be Ultraviolet compatible. VUDU is the only one to support both Disney Movies Anywhere and Ultraviolet, and as long as that is the case I'll strongly prefer to buy digital movies on VUDU. Also, being able to do Ultraviolet Disc-To-Digital directly from an Xbox would also be a nice feature since a lot of people don't have Blu-Ray drives on their computers.

        Please add ultraviolet. Disney Movie Anywhere is great and all,but thats only disney movies, the other studios are part of Ultraviolet! please allow us to link up that License Locker as well!

        Great, Microsoft added support for Disney Movies Anywhere. But where's the Ultraviolet support, of which organization that Microsoft is actually a part of?

      • Kian NgKian Ng commented  · 

        Please add this. I am only buying movies from Vudu due to their support for Ultraviolet and Disney Movies Anywhere.

        Cameron: "uhh....can someone look up Ultraviolet for me?"

      • JevonJevon commented  · 

        Please add Ultraviolet support!!! I have over 500 movies that I can't watch on xbox video :(

      • AaronAaron commented  · 

        Just bought a surface pro 3 and I can finally see my content on a device other than an Xbox. You're behind the times Microsoft. All of my movies are purchased through Vudu. Vudu just keeps getting better and better while your movie service is getting more and more irrelevant!

      • Eric JilotEric Jilot commented  · 

        Lost yet another sale (Star Wars) to Vudu, because you do not support UVVU (Ultraviolet) or Disney's Movies Anywhere.

        Whats worse is that Microsoft is a member of Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the organization behind UVVU.

      • Michael Di VerdiMichael Di Verdi commented  · 

        This would be the game changer that would give me confidence to invest in this eco system. I could be assured that my titles carry valid UV licences and my collection is safe long term.

        Please integrate Xbox Video with UltraViolet movies like iTunes and Google Play does. I really like the Xbox Video App and I try to watch most of my movies here. However, when I find movies on sale in stores, I buy them only to find out that there are no download capability for Windows devices (SP3, tablets, etc.)

      • Richard GuntherRichard Gunther commented  · 

        Great idea. I might actually use Xbox Video if I knew my titles would be available through UltraViolet.

      • Anders0nyAnders0ny commented  · 

        Give me a reason to buy from you Microsoft and I will ... it's that simple, if you serious about it.

        How can your Xbox Video and Music service compete with Amazon Prime ? I get Unlimited Prime Video (TV Series / Movies) Streaming, Unlimited Prime Music Streaming, and Free expedited shipping on purchases for a few dollars difference on just what you want to charge me for Music Streaming alone...

        Video Purchases ? When I want to purchase a movie, I check who has the best deal of the UltraViolet members (Flixster, Vudu, Barnes & Noble Nook, CinemaNow, Target Ticket, Verizon FIOS On Demand, M-GO, or simply Blu-ray with UV license on-board) and buy from them ... Xbox Video isn't even considered ...

        You can't be that blind, as to not know why your not the premier service out there... but your Sales and marketing strategy leaves me .... looking elsewhere.

        Every time I see a good sale in Xbox Video, I'm tempted, but then stop because I know I can't watch it on other devices (we rent occasionally, but always go back to discs for buying). UV tie in would help that immensely.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        It's been under review for over a year now, that a long time to figure out if you want to implement a feature. I hope this something you intend to implement as part of XBox Video.

        Maybe we could get an update from someone at Microsoft.

        Hurry up and make this happen, or I'll just keep spending my money on Walmarts VUDU app
