    Ultraviolet in the News

    Either I'm feeble at searching, or these have not been posted.

    Interview with Mark Teitell from DECE:

    ...there are over 12,500 UV titles now

    UltraViolet now has more than 17 million household accounts.

    ...something like a third of people reported that they have already been buying more content because of UV

    ...we are on a timed countdown to introducing the Common File Format in the U.S., during this year. We have completed our trials and initiated a countdown in the U.S. to commercial deployment.

    NPD report on the state of Ultraviolet:

    Well over half of the 16 million UltraViolet (UV) users in the U.S. are now viewing their content on a TV.

    The report found that as of February 2014, 61 percent of the U.S. UV user population has watched a movie from their cloud-based UV library on a TV, a 43 percent increase from the 43 percent who had reported doing so in August 2013.

    ...satisfaction with UV among users is near 90%, and 82% plan to continue using the service in the future.

    Re: Ultraviolet in the News

    So which is it, 16 or 17 million accounts? I think this number is high. I think many accounts were created and then abandoned when the user decided that UltraViolet wasn't for them because it was rolled out before it was ready for prime time.

    Don't get me wrong, I personally like UV and plan to continue using it until it no longer exists. I just feel that the UV website sucks and the whole process could have been designed and built much more professionally.

    I hope that UV continues to grow AND get better. Things just seem to move at a snail's pace!

        I read this interview about a month ago, but I didn't post it because when someone posts a link to a story like this, the thread usually gets locked.

        The latest number is 18 million accounts, with 16 million being US based accounts. It doesn't sound to me like a lot of those accounts were abandoned, if 82% plan to keep on using it. I think that's quite healthy.
