I still think you can redeem in Flixster, dependant on title and age - I redeemed Phantom Thread in there at the beginning of June and the US 4K code via Vudu ported into there a couple of weeks ago.Am I right in thinking that Google Play is the only way to redeem UK codes now? I have an unused bunch from Fox, Warner, Universal etc. I just tried Creed toes if it was still active on water & that sent me to Flixster to log in but when I tried the Matrix trilogy that went to Google play.
Definitely. And glad to see it’s all still working as it should. For now......The UV closure date is now only a couple of days away. I just redeemed a large pile of codes that I'd set aside over the years but ignored... some recent although also many quite old.
They all worked except the Universal ones (many of which it seems were withdrawn just recently on 15-Feb-2019) and all the BBC ones (redemption website doesn't even exist anymore). No problems with Warner Bros, Sony or Fox titles. They all went to Google Play except for the ones that redeemed on the Flixter site.
Guess that I should now spend some time hunting down more codes from purchases that I haven't watched or even unsealed yet...!
The lack of Flixster app on TVs is definitely what killed it in my opinion.I migrated my UV account to Flixter, but there isn't a Flixter app for my LG C8 TV...
What's the best app to watch on LG tv's? So far the Moves & TV App through Google is the best.
I encountered that issue with some Zoom orders (Spartacus, Ted/Ted2, Steve Jobs) and was advised to contact Universal support using their form @ https://www.ultravioletuniversal.com/support/gbr/support.aspx (click on the 3rd bullet point to reveal form)
their email response, after an hour or two ...Technical Information
Retailer: ... (Zoom not there, so I left it blank)
Operating System: Other
Request Type: Redemption Code and Licenses
Comments or Questions: Please note this redemption code was for the Blu-ray title
Spartacus ("55th Anniversary Restored Edition"), purchased on 14th April 2019 from
Zoom.co.uk, who have advised me to click here and request a new code.
Same response for the other titles. I then replied to each with my chosen title from that limited list (ended up choosing Lady Bird, The Huntsman: Winter's War, Snow White and the Huntsman, Jaws). After another hour or two received the UV code.From: Universal Ultraviolet Support <Ultraviolet.Univer[email protected]>

Thanks, I'll give that a try. Spartacus was also one of the titles I had that didn't work; some others included Ex_Machina, Kick Ass, Kick Ass 2, Dad's Army and more that I don't remember. Also have Ted, Fifty Shades and perhaps others from Universal amongst the stacks of Poundland discs I haven't been through yet!
I found a Lionsgate code sometime later, which is another that didn't work anymore. Their redemption site redirects to Flixster but the system didn't accept the code.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
The First Purge

Sounds simple enough to resolve (assuming you’ve got the discs).However, they've started bouncing my second batch of requests with this response after I've sent through the UltraViolet slip images:
I also found a Sony code that didn't work, which was a surprise since all the others did. This was for Total Recall (2012); when submitted the page redirects to Sony Pictures Store instead of Google Play, then says that an unknown error occurred upon trying to redeem it there. I've submitted a support request.
