    Confusion re: Back to the Future movies

    How come the Back to the Future movies show as UV-ready in my WishList, but when I try to do the Disc to Digital conversion of my blu-ray Back to the Future movies, a message says they are not available?

    Not everything that is UV is available for D2D.

      Why is that? What is taking so long for some of these titles?

        Right, not everything that is a UV title is available for D2D...but everything that is UV should be available for D2D in my opinion (even your old VHS movies). That is the whole point of UV...but the movie industry thinks that watching movies in the cloud carries such a high value with consumers that we will buy their movies twice if they don't allow them to be converted from disc to digital.

          Which has been true for them with VHS -> DVD -> Blu-Ray, so why not on "the next big thing?"

            Or for some of us.
            VHS -> LaserDisc -> DVD -> Blu-Ray

            Don't forget SelectaVision, Beta, Hi8, HD-DVD and others to name a few.

              Because I'll boycott any titles they try that nonsense with. I've bought the same junk so many time I don't want to buy it again. EXCEPT as D2D, for the LAST time, that blood money. I've paid enough into the system.

              They need to understand that the future is not in selling the SAME TITLE repeatedly to the same customer. That just brasses off the customer and makes them not want to buy from you anymore. The FUTURE is in selling a permanent right to the customer for that title, period. They can watch it however they want, whatever resolution, whatever device, once it's licensed. After that, sell them NEW titles. Given the massive catalogs these mega-corporations own (leaving aside the massive abuse of the original intent of copyright law), they will basically NEVER run out of titles to sell you, as long as they get off their @$$e$ and make the rights available.

              It doesn't matter whether you sell someone 100 copies of the SAME TITLE or 100 individual copies of different titles. The end result is the same, in terms of profit. As far as I'm concerned. But in the former case you have an unhappy customer tired of buying the same title over and over and over from you (and thus tired of buying from you IN GENERAL) and in the latter case you have a satisfied customer waiting eagerly to buy the next title(s) from you.

              Just saying. That's my opinion on the thing. As an end user I'd rather pay for 10 DIFFERENT TITLES than 10 different "micro-versions" of the SAME TITLE. This is what the studios seem to fail to understand.

              And, I agree, the situation with Back to the Future sucks. I've bought the DVD sets, I've bought the Blu-Ray sets, I see that all 3 titles have the UV icon on VUDU, meaning the rights have cleared, but they don't recognize in VUDU2Go and you can't bring them up in the list of in-store conversion items either. That blows. I don't know whether it's because VUDU simply doesn't have the disc IDs from the studio to let them match the discs to the titles, or whether the more orwellian, machiavellian versin where the Corporations are simply withholding the titles in hopes of garnering higher profits is true.

              If they think I'm paying "full price" AGAIN for the things I JUST BOUGHT NEW on Blu-ray, they're delusional. Hell will freeze over first. And you can quote me on it...

                There is only a UV Redeem on Back to the Future I, not II or III on Vudu. If you goto Universal's digital redemption website you'll see the same thing, only I, not II or III. Universal released a version or I by itself that had a UV on it. None of the trilogy packs had UV on them, only iTunes.

                What I see if the UV logo on Vudu for all three down in the bottom of the "Overview". If I recall correctly (???) this is supposed to mean that if it's in your Vudu Collection (IE purchased on Vudu) that it will appear in your UV locker (IE Flixster, CinemaNow, etc).
