      They've been adding a lot of UV, they've added hundreds of titles from what I can see. The problem is that they're adding titles that it doesn't look like could have been procured from anywhere. It's good that the handful of people who possibly bought some UV movies from the 1920s and '30s are getting their stuff fixed but is that really the bulk of the problem?

      There are hundreds of HD and 4K that people already got from other providers but that Vudu seems unable or unwilling to upgrade. Some of these are notable titles as people have mentioned, like Lionsgate and Sony 4K titles. I'd also add a lot of Warner and Sony HD. It seems that after July 31 that FandangoNOW might also act as a bridge for Movies Anywhere titles (good for Sony titles) but that doesn't really help with outstanding Lionsgate titles that I'd like to watch at Vudu. And it doesn't help people who bought HD titles at CinemaNow that don't import to either Vudu or FandangoNOW in anything but SD if at all, which it seems there are many from the spreadsheet.

        That will be helpful for those of us who keep losing MA titles due to the UV licensing issue that keeps sending incorrect refund requests from UV to VUDU that VUDU passes to MA while the titles are truly still in UV and VUDU.

        ​​​​If indeed FN was to bridge the UV titles to MA that would return the missing titles to MA. This will be very helpful if VUDU and UV are unable to fix the issue before 7/31.

          I've been having some UV issues, bought The Grifters, Serendipity, and Trackman on iTunes (had leftover gift card funds) and noticed they are all UV. I contacted iTunes help, they said contact MA, when I said they aren't MA eligible they said contact Vudu (since I told them about Texas Chainsaw moving into UV and then Vudu)? I contacted UV but haven't heard back from them.

            You purchased non MA movies on iTunes. iTunes is separate from UV and does not support UV. Those movies will stay in iTunes and will not port anywhere - unless those studios ever join up with MA. You do not gain UV rights from your purchase on iTunes.

              I redeemed Leon:The Professional 4K HDR through my linked Sony account in 2018. In VUDU, all I show is the 4K remastered version that I redeemed in 2015. But in VUDU I do not show the 4K HDR version.

                That is the meaning of the original post. Vudu has not enabled UHD with this title - and they need to.

                  Colbyw, I am new at this, so yes I did see in the Spreadsheet, at #s 224 & 225 Leon The Professional, with these SONY IDs:

                  12764
                  703366 - Extended

                  These are the 2015 4K Remastered versions cited. I already have those in my VUDU collection.

                  What I am instead looking for, is for VUDU to enable UHD for the 4K HDR version released in 2017.
                  The ID # on the spine of that SONY Ultra HD release is 50885.

                  So I'm confused by your statement. Are you meaning that anyone who redeemed the 2015 codes for the 4K Remastered versions, are to expect them to be enabled in UHD, from that purchase alone?

                    I don't know about the physical discs. All that matters is if Vudu enables UHD for a version that you have in UHD in your UV locker or in MA and/or a UHD code that verifies as UHD on MA and redeems UHD on Vudu (which none do currently) - when all of these things align you will get UHD in Vudu. As of now, none do.

                    *I know it can be confusing, but if you don't have in UHD in your UV locker or in MA - you will not get UHD rights if Vudu enables UHD.

                      Thank you for your response. I have now figured out that, when I redeemed the code for Leon The Professional through the Sony site, that it was linked out to MA, per the Sony Site. So I do have the movie in 4K HDR through MA, but not through VUDU.

                        Did you mean via UV? Because Sony has never been directly linked to MA. Or do you have it in MA due to redeeming your code via MA? You can look at your MA transaction history and it will show from which provider (MA included) insert a movie into your MA.

                          If it was UHD and UV on FN it could port via UV to FN and then from FN to MA in UHD. Lol

                            I think you meant FN to UV to VUDU to MA. Nothing from UV to FN passes to MA at this time.

                              Vudu doesn't have it in UHD so it wouldn't port to FN in UHD from Vudu. (I don't know 100%, just my best guess) He redeemed in "2018" on Sony in UHD which was probably hooked to his UV, and The Professional may have been UV on FN at that time - and FN does have UHD enabled for The Professional, but don't remember if UV to FN ported to MA back then. But, now I really want to know the answer, lol. Where's Rex - he would know.

                                The only way, as of now, that a title goes FN to MA is if the title is purchased on FN. VUDU is the only service the ports incoming titles from UV into MA.
