    best place to get these codes is when you buy the movies from new the buying of codes on this forums is a big no no as per the t&cs :)

    How is it terrible? At least it's a unified system, without the need for all of those silly bespoke players from the likes of Fox etc. Just add it to Flixster and it's there to stream/download, or you can watch it on a PC. It's dead easy to use.

    I rather like UV when bundled in with a Blu-Ray but I don't think I'd buy them on their own. At home I'll want Blu-Ray but UV is great for tablets. I have a collection of about a dozen films (and growing) on Flixster so when I need to travel for work I just download a couple to watch offline.

    I had a look at my disc and the only ones I have is Dark Knight Rises, American Reunion and Supernatural S7.

    Do they have a expiry date ?

    2 years from release date apparently

    I've not used any of my UV codes (as I rip my own BDs), but it sounds like it's a pretty good, flexible system.
    I've noticed that Disney US have now started offering Amazon and VUDU digital copies (instead of iTunes or UV) which is annoying a lot of people :laugh:

    The only reason I asked is because I've had a change off job @ work... I now have all my break at once an 1hr!! So im working my way thru the few films i have,Noticed the ultraviolet films on eBay so thought I would ask!!! As for the post saying there rubbish, I disagree, for work or other times on the iPad there great... Off course there's no Dts 5.1 7.1 or HD, but to pass the time I think it ideal...

    The Ultraviolet copies themselves actually are in 1080p with 5.1 and 7.1 audio mixes. Also full 3D too if that is where the code originated from. Unfortunately the state of download services beyond itunes here is a joke. I use Vudu and can say the UV system is unbelievably good when setup right. IF you need Lossless audio then no it won't fill that void, but if like myself you don't appreciate the gains from lossless, then it can pretty much replace your BD collection. The ability to combine your own collection with other family members with it is fantastic.
