    That's what I was referring to. Having an UV "instawatch" option for Amazon would get people's attention in ways that nothing else has so far. I love the Walmart/Vudu option, but if someone buys a disc in the store, they still have to manually scan the receipt. If you had the option on Amazon, the "average" consumer might finally begin to understand what Ultraviolet is really about.
    Derp! I see now, I was thinking you were saying their size would be the big factor, but Best Buy is a big retailer, too, and CinemaNow is not going anywhere fast. But I see you were also talking about their ability to be a full-service media provider, like Vudu and Walmart are trying to do. (Personally, I think Vudu's doing a great job, but we know Instawatch is having issues on Walmart's side, and the studios can make redemptions confusing and frustrating, too.)

      Their goal is to lock up a similar share of video, both physical and EST.

      There is no question, they are a big player. It is interesting that WD-Studios elected iTunes as their first. GooglePlay as the second. The third should of been Amazon, but here we are three days from Vudu getting the third slot in interconnection to DMA.
      Didn't Amazon and Disney just settle some big dispute? I think, if I remember correctly, that Amazon wasn't taking pre-orders on The Winter Soldier or Maleficent for awhile and maybe didn't have The Winter Soldier when it first went on sale.

      I answered my own question: http://dailycaller.com/2014/08/12/am...vie-preorders/

        Yeah, that could be the reason. Still, the confusion with DMA will just grow as they keep adding vendors. UV is often criticized for needing two accounts to work. It has been stream-lined somewhat with auto account creation via API out of a vendor store front. DMA is going to grow awfully clunky as they keep adding vendors. Plus, with it being for just one studio makes for a rather annoying user expirence.

          As I understand it, Best Buy no longer owns CinemaNow so the two should no longer be tied together.

            DMA is not clunky right now, and I would not expect the addition of Vudu to make it clunky. Vudu has been preparing for DMA for a while, so hopefully everything will go smoothly like it did when Google Play was added. Adding more vendors will actually decrease any confusion because your vendor of choice will be more likely to be part of DMA. Right now the confusing part is if you choose a non DMA provider to redeem your code the movie will not end up in your DMA locker. Of course you can still get in your locker with the DMR portion of the code.

            I really don't see how just including Disney/Pixar/Disney-Marvel makes it annoying. If anything it makes it simpler. Redeem your digital code or DMA code at digital copy plus and watch at your favorite linked provider, this is just how Ultraviolet works. The DMA app is great for the on the go experience.

            The DMA locker is really very similar to the UV locker, any complaints about DMA probably apply to Ultraviolet as well, except for the lack of family sharing, which is the big bugaboo for you and many others.
            iTunes has family sharing now which includes Disney movies, so maybe Vudu could include DMA titles in family sharing. It does not seem to be prohibited by Disney.

              In my opinion, it would be hypocritical to call the two account requirement with DECE a confusion and hindrance to consumer acceptance and not level the same claim at DMA.

              The fact that DMA is a single studio, does not have D2D, and has no library sharing are additional strikes. The family sharing of iTunes / AppleTV is a pale comparison to the DECE library sharing feature.
