    I'm still confused. I merged two UV accounts but still have two separate logins. Both accounts appear to have identical libraries. Does it matter which one of these logins are connected to other retailers? I have about 50 titles that I purchased or redeemed from now defunct UV retailers.

      not even by a long shot. No TV title support, many movies missing, no library sharing.... MA has pretty much been worthless for me.

        Perhaps the remaining studios will now get on board with MA. TV really needs to be included as well. If studios were only interested in subscription based television content, then why sell Netflix and Hulu original programming on Vudu and Itunes. These platforms may be replacing cable and OTA but it's not a substitution for owning.

          I have a TON of titles that are neither MA or UV, mainly Lionsgate, MGM, and Wells Go USA. 120 is appropriate. The number of MA-only titles I determined by the difference between my UV-only library at myuv.com and my MA-only library at moviesanywhere.com (79), not comparing it to Vudu. This takes into account UV titles that also have MA license, because it's just finding the number of UV titles missing MA licenses. When comparing my Moviesanywhere library and my Vudu library, there is a difference of 200 movies. When I subtract the number that is the difference between my UV and MA libraries (79) from the difference between my Vudu and MA libraries, it leaves 120 not accounted for, which are the Vudu only titles. These are all rough estimates due to the bundles.

          edit: If I were to filter by studio to find the MA-only, I'd also have to include Touchstone and other Disney subsidiaries.


          Hmm interesting. I do understand how you're calculating your totals but I don't think it's an accurate method.

          My issue is with the way you're determining the MA-only total of 79. You say the way you determined your MA-only titles was by finding the difference between your total UV count (884) and your total MA count (805) which gives you 79.

          However, I think the correct formula to find your MA-only count is finding difference between your total MA count (805) and the total movies your UV and MA libraries have in common. This second number is the one that's tricky to find. To figure out this second number you would need to determine how many movies in your UV count are from Paramount/MGM/Lionsgate (as well as a few other minor studios) and therefore UV-only.

          Once we have that count, we can subtract them from the total UV count. The ones left should presumably all be from studios that issued both UV and MA licenses and therefore all movies that your UV and MA libraries have in common.

          It's a little confusing, but let's say for example that 250 of your UV movies are from Paramount/MGM/Lionsgate and therefore UV-only. This would mean that your UV library and MA library only have 634 titles in common (884 minus 250).

          This means that your MA-only count would actually be the difference between your total MA count (805) and the movies in common (634), which would mean that your total number of MA-only movies would be 171, not 79.

          This would also mean that in VUDU the movies that have either an MA or UV license (or both) would be determined by adding your total UV count (885, which includes movies UV and MA have in common) to the MA-only count (171). This would give you a total count of 1056 movies with either an MA or UV license (or both). And the total movies with NEITHER (VUDU only) would be 1085 minus 1056 which is about 29.

          I kind of went through the same thing, except that with me my MA count and my UV count were almost identical, which simply meant that the number of Paramount/MGM/Lionsgate movies (UV-only) I owned was almost equal to the number of Disney (MA-only) movies I owned. However, in VUDU my movie count was way higher than my total movie count in either UV or MA. I knew that there was no way that that many of those movies were VUDU only. I had to use the studio filtering in order to determine which of those movies were MA-only and which were UV-only.

          NOTE: when I say Disney, I am also including all of Disney's subsidiary studios like Touchtone, Hollywood Pictures, Lucasfilm, Marvel, Pixar etc.

            That's what happens when I'm posting at work! I release in reading your post that my phrasing in my initial post is totally wrong...I meant to say that subtracting my total number of titles in my Movies Anywhere library (805) from my total of Ultraviolet titles (884), would give me the number of Ultraviolet titles that do not also have Movies Anywhere licenses......I kept thinking backwards and saying it would give me the number of my MA-only titles...which doesn't really matter for this thread. I was more so bringing out the number of UV titles that still need to have MA titles, so that (in theory) my Moviesanywhere page and myuv.com have the same number of titles. I do know what you mean that there are some MA titles that are not UV...pretty much all the Disney/etc. titles that are post-MA additions to my library....rough guess, maybe 25 titles (no real clue off hand). So...not counting bundles...my Moviesanywhere should have at least 884 titles to reflect MA licenses for every UV titles, plus all the MA-only titles. So about 79 titles need to be added to my MA library from my UV library. If you subtract the (estimated) number of MA-only titles from the MA total, that brings the numbers to 780 and 884, meaning there are 104 UV titles not reflected in the MA library.

            As for the Vudu-only titles, you are right, the MA-only titles make it so I'd have to physically count, instead of doing the math in this manner.

              Are you talking about UV accounts and not Vudu accounts? If you merged UV accounts you would not be left with 2 logins and 2 libraries. Sounds like you have UV sharing set up with 2 linked UV accounts. This is different from a merge.

                That might be the case. I don't know how I can tell for sure. I have my primary Vudu account which has all my UV titles. I have one UV login that's linked to that Vudu account and another login (which also has all my titles) which links to my Fandangonow. I had a secondary Vudu account but it's no longer linked to my UV even though I don't remember ever disconnecting it.

                Just checked myuv and indeed it does list one of my email logins as a shared user but when I attempted to merge, it said that, "Both users selected for merge belong to the same account." Should I just leave it alone then?

Once UV shuts down as long as your account remains linked, the titles will simply remain as owned in Vudu and just the uv logo will go away. Simple. Any issuees with Sony store , etc can be worked out by the user with that studio.
                  Sigh, Sony is closing it's streaming service as well, so those titles that are Sony UHD, like MIB titles are at risk due to this closure of both services that cross reference the licensing information.

When I got the email about the Sony Pictures store closing, I contacted them about this very issue because I suspected the closure of UV was coming soon. I had 6 Sony movies I redeemed in UV that Vudu didn't have UHD rights for. So, when MA came around, Vudu only pushed HD rights into MA.

                    They issued me 6 new UHD codes for those movies to redeem though MA with the only condition that they would then be removed from UV. As a result, all my Sony movies have UHD rights in MA now.
                    Thank you I will get to them tomorrow on the subject, I think that I have about 4 or 5 also that are both MA and UVVU UHD titles but not UHD on VUDU. Thank you again, I will check back and let you all know on that front.

                    I sent them an e-mail, I have 5 titles that are UHD in Sony & UVVU. MIB 1-3, Labyrinth & Fifth Element. Not sure if these are UHD in MA, but if they are, I requested a code from them to retain my UHD licensing/rights in MA going forward. So glad that I did not have more to try to figure out. I have a whole bunch that are UHD in Fandango, but not VUDU as well. Such a cluster this is right now, sigh....

                    Thank you for cluing me in to having Sony push out codes that I can redeem in MA to retain my UHD licensing, so very much.

                    ***Well I was wrong again, I had more titles that were UHD in Sony and UVVU, all of the Close Encounters and Passengers, so those got added to the list for Sony to try and fix as well. What a mess I have to say, and I am chuckling as I say that, cause if I did not laugh I would just be plain downright angry at this point....

                      Except the MA is designed differently. UV was designed to be a digital locker which is where your purchase rights were stored. Unlinking a retailer from UV caused your UV purchases made at a different retailer disappear. MA works differently where the retailers maintain the licenses and MA works as a coordinator. If you delink a retailer from MA, your linked movies remain.

                      Note that according to the FAQ, UV is actually switching to the MA model right before they shut down so that the rights aren?t lost at retailers.

                        However, if the UV licenses are revoked, linked accounts will lose access to the films.
                        So, if users are going to continue to have access to the movies after UV is shutdown, at some point they are going to convert to actual purchases in the retailer they have linked (that's pretty much the only way that's going to work). Once that happens, disconnect the UV account and contact Sony for the replacement codes.

                        Also, as a note, Sony said they were going to revoke the UV rights for those movies, but a few weeks later and they are all still there. So, YMMV.

                          All of Sony's UHDs redeem with 4k rights in MA, so you'll be good. Specifically, all 5 of those moves are in UHD on Amazon. So, once you get the MA codes and redeem there, you'll have all of those movies in UHD in Amazon. They are also 4k in Google Play Movies as well (4 with HDR, The 5th Element is 4k only.)

                            Thank you so very, very much, it is not like I would be really out, I have over 4,000 movie titles with VUDU and a boatload of TV series all seasons as well, probably about 200+ TV seasons, so would I miss them, most likely not. However, I did pay for them and would like to have them in the cloud, obviously I have invested in VUDU (my primary choice for streaming since 2011) heavily, and hope that going forward we are all supportive of one another.

                            Thank you again, these forums are great when we all work together, retailer and customers, Thank you all.


                            ***Update, called Sony received 4K codes for all 9 titles redeemable on MA, they have redeemed on MA as 4K. Sony is very accommodating on this issue***
