( D2D is not a requirement of UV.)

    These things take time, UV is a couple years old now and they still are working on their website.
    I agree these things can take time but IMHO Disney should have supported UV long ago. No reason why the DMA app couldn't have already supported UV and/or other service providers out of the gate rather than be exclusive to one proprietary format.

      I think it was a business decision, not a technology decision. There clearly is some deal with iTunes/Apple, maybe the money was too great to pass up, maybe it was the offer of free HD upgrades. Also the things we like about UV may not be liked by Disney, specially the library sharing.

        For those who are wondering why Disney would pursue the Apple partnership as an exclusive on their app or support them first-->
        ---For those who don't know Disney's CEO and Chairman, Robert Iger, sits on Apple's Board of Directors.

          And that page speaks volumes considering Albert Gore Jr. is also on the board of directors.

Surprisingly I hadn't thrown out the digital copies and codes from most of my Disney movies that had them (I did for others as a local-only low-rez DRM copy is worthless to me) so I was able to try out signing up for an iTunes account and linking with the Disney service. I was very pleased and impressed with the titles that were there in that they had (all?) the extra content nicely presented and accessible. The current method of how studios and digital retailers add extra content (which most titles don't have) to the end of the movie or as a few extra files is a very poor experience. I'd love to see how UV providers and studios to figure out how to offer something even close to this. (Random gripe: still displeased that neither service redeems the 3D copy)
            iTunes has had extras for a good while now. I've really enjoyed knowing that was there (by a while, I know it was since the 2009 Star Trek (reboot) release, if not before) as it meant not missing out on stuff I would normally have paid for the disc-based copies for.

            I appreciate that Vudu offers the extras, but like you, I hate the way they currently include them as it just isn't convenient at all and doesn't fit with my desired usage.

            Otherwise, you raise some interesting points, though I'm not sure I agree with the thought that it wouldn't be 'good enough' to just have Vudu (or others) tied into DMA. It would certainly be a good start and would lessen fears and concerns that any of us would be absolutely locked into iTunes for anything. Not that I expect iTunes to go anywhere, but since they are Apple only (or primarily so -- you can see the content on Windows PC's, but not so easily on other non-Apple devices) I still very much want non-iOS alternatives for accessing DMA content.

              That is cool. Thx for sharing. I agree that bonus content missing from UV titles across vendors is a gap which should be filled. I did not know the DMR/iTunes had that figured out and am impressed.

                Haven't cross-referenced with the physical media (I am one of those lazy Americans), but the bonus material listed with Avengers through DMA looks to be almost everything they would have included on the BD release, outtakes, deleted scenes, alternate begining/ending, and a couple of 'shorts'.

                VUDU, please don't let iTunes corner this market!

                  The biggest problem with DMA is the exclusion of BVHE content. I emailed them about it but don't expect a reply. It would be nice to have Enemy of the State, The Rock, Armageddon, Con Air, etc. at DMA or even Vudu. Oh well, I'll stick to ripping BVHE and MGM content, your loss Disney and MGM.
