    That's because they most likely acquired these movies illegally. Buying codes off eBay and other black market code selling websites, Google groups for trading and selling, buying fraudulent Vudu accounts with movies and then merging them with their main account, etc....

      Before I quit buying Blu-rays, I had over 1,000 titles in my collection, all bought legally. Do you expect me to keep all those receipts in hopes 2 years later Paramount or Sony would ask for them to issue me a new UHD code? The simple answer is no.

      Let's not forget how many buy Blu-rays or 4Ks just to get the digitals, then resell their discs on eBay? Those were also obtained legally, but still have no way to provide pictures of the media a year later.

      The fact is these are issues within Vudu, that need to be address, and should have been addressed months, if not longer ago. When 4 retailers have said title in UHD, Vudu can easily request it and get it. I doubt any studio is going to hold back from Vudu, unless they have an exclusive deal with just one streamer. Providing UHD to all retailers does nothing but opens up the possibility of said studios making more money.

        I didn?t keep all my paperwork for blu rays and learned my lesson. I bought 283 UHD blu rays and kept EVERYTHING. When I call the studios they fix any issues. I spent a lot of money and I don?t feel bad for the 70% of people complaining about UV who paid $5 for a digital license. That?s a rental cost. Then account sellers it?s just annoying. The people in that GOOGLE plus group/MeWe are the worst.

        This list is not going to accomplish anything because it?s way too bloated. If you trim it down it might succeed but this won?t.

          If you feel that way, why are you posting here? Clear you don't care. We do. We paid for our discs, which came with codes, that throw errors and redeemed for lesser quality. Vudu has already said they will try and fix these issues, and they have fixed a few. If a studio blocks them, they really can't do anything. But if that's all you have to say, see yourself to another thread.

            Every Sony release I own is 4K in MA. I called Sony they removed the UV and issued 4K MA codes. Contact Sony if you want it fixed as it?s not Vudu?s job.

                From looking at your forum posts, you posted once in March 2018 and nothing in nearly a year, until this thread was made, then you've made 2 or 3 one liner comments on some threads, then the rest is in here complaining about the people who want these issues fixed. Very trollish, and this will be my last reply to you.

                You can believe what you want. Fact is I have had many tickets here opened, that required pictures to get fixes, and I've supplied those, so I guess that blows your comment out of the water... lol

                  Fortunately for the rest of us this thread is about UV issues that need to be addressed, and not about what you 'believe'. You trying to derail this thread presents you as petty and immature. Some of us have spent a lot of money on digital through Fandangonow, (now gone) Target Ticket, Cinemanow and Vudu. Whether we spend $5 a movie or $20 a movie is completely irrelevant to the fact that we bought UV rights to that title at a specific resolution. And as a consumer we have a right to request to have things fixed according to what we purchased

I know I wouldn't. I normally just rebuy the 4K if I know the code will redeem in 4K, then sell off the disc in a local group.

                    yep you got me man.

                      Also what is the definition of a troll post to you? The fact that my opinion is different than yours? The fact that you want digital ownership despite not owning the discs which I assumed. Then you called me a liar but a day latter you openly admit that you sell the discs in a seperate thread.

                      You're correct I don't post a lot on the internet. I have 4k discs to watch instead. I post here about Vudu issues which I've had a couple of.

                      If you own physical they can't take it away. The only people pitching a fit dont own these titles the way they claim. It's not VUDU job to help you try and beat the system.

                        How about the fact that you've made it your job to barge in here and accuse people of things?

                        I have lots of stuff on physical, but I prefer digital for ease of use. I've actually bought a fair amount of stuff straight through digital because it was on a huge sale. You seem to forget that not every legit purchase is physical disc + code. So maybe just stop with your accusations and leave this thread since you're only here to antagonize others.

                          Not sure if it should be on the list or not but Vudu has yet to update Grease HDX with the new transfer.

                              So what's next? Is it a bad idea to even buy digital movies? What happens if VUDU or any of these companies shutdown? VUDU is a separate company from Walmart. Worse now about 3 years ago I stopped buying physical movies .. I have boxes upon boxes of Discs. Now I'm filled with uncertainty.

                              This situation really makes me feel very uneasy about digital movie purchases. I've literally purchased thousands a physical DVDs and Blu-rays over the decades. Regarding UV, I have a bunch that went from HDX downgraded to SD and what's worse I'm not certain how many are actually lost completely (if any). I don't have time for this crap of double checking, inventorying, keeping vanishing (thermal paper) receipts and a like. I went digital so I didn't have to worry about lost discs.

                              So what happens if VUDU decides to close its doors? It's bad enough that I have a few hundred dollars of orphaned movies on Google and Apple iTunes. I realize this is a UV issue .. but what's next?

                              Especially now I feel like a chump for buying movies in the first place with all these pirate sites. Sorry about the rant...

                                To Wastelands credit he didn't edit his post about selling off his discs. I've bought digital also guys but I worked with studios and my issues except 3 or 4 or fixed.

                                Limitless UHD on FANDANGO Now I purchased never transferred to UV despite having a UV sticker for 2 years. Gone now.

                                Ex Machina is UHD in my UV locker but ports as HD.

                                Now You See Me UHD in UV ports in HD

                                Transformers UHD never made it out of UV eithet
