I wish that people would stop giving movies 1 star for having UltraViolet digital downloads. It's ridiculous and incredibly childish.

Stick to critiquing the movie.

So I am confused the ultraviolet digital download is only for one day. If not you have to stream it on ultraviolet?

I wish people would mind their own business and allow other people to review as they see fit.

If you don't find the logic of critiquing the UV download (and only the UV download) to be completely asinine , then hey, more power to you.

They are reviewing the PRODUCT. Why is it too hard for you to understand reviews for products should focus on the product, not just the movie itself?

Take the first Blu-ray release of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The case said it was presented 1080p but there was an encoding error that supposedly caused the Blu-ray to actually present video output in 1080i. Two months later another version released correctly displaying video in 1080p. Should a review of that Blu-ray by customers not mention the quality of the video? I would want to know this if I was considering purchasing the item.

Should not someone complain about the lack of extras in a Blu-ray release if extras are next to nothing or do not exist? What if another release sells for the same price or less with equal or greater quality and more extras? Shouldn't a review mention this to inform others who would appreciate this feedback?

If you want a review of the movie go to a website that reviews movies. A quality review of a product on Amazon should review the entire product.

Personally, I dislike UV and I am glad to see these reviews mentioning this issue. I think people should mention this as it is relevant to the product. Should the review be 1 star out of 5? I don't know but you're more likely to get noticed by using that score than if you put a 3 out of 5.

My thing is, even though it is UV, it still comes with the actual movie on a disc. So if you have a blu-ray drive on your PC, why not just rip it to whatever format you want, and then BAM! You can put on all your isheep, I mean iphones and itunes.

hopefully the studios will take notice and start giving us real digital copies again. I'd like to know if this includes a real digital copy as well like some movies. There is a note on amazon saying the 'digital copy expires in 2014' usually digital copy refers to a 'digital copy' not ultraviolet garbage

maybe i've mistaken but the UV digital includes a copy you can download for iTunes. i was worried about the same issue for Hunger Games Blue ray that i purchased. But it gave me the option to download to my iTunes on the UV screen. once you choose iTunes, it sends you to itunes where u take your UV code and redeem it in itunes.

update: i should also mention, even though i choose itunes to redeem the digital movie, it still allows me to watch it via the UV site as well (you need to create an UV account). so i wasn't locked to one choice. here's the link of the blue ray i bought The Hunger Games (Blu-ray + Digital Copy)

update 2: i also want to clarify that upon download via itunes i was able to sync it to my Apple devices. It also shows up in my "purchased" movies section as well so i can stream it directly from apple tv etc.

I'll never understand why people want digital copies anyway. Oh yeah, this is the iPad generation. Lame.

And to the folks who think that their one star reviews are going to be noticed and UV will die a quick death... keep dreaming.

to be fair, i just want a digital copy to put on my phone. yes i understand you can rip etc yourself but it's just convenient to have it. plus because you own a digital version from iTunes etc. you can just stream it when it's convenient. obviously no way digital copy is gonna be blue ray but it's just for those times when you don't have your disc.

I have no problem with UltraViolet digital downloads. No different than iTunes downloads. At any time, the studio can pull the product, and you are only have temporary license, not ownership of the downloaded material, so what's the big deal? So many people whine about it, but it's not that bad, honestly. I stream movies via UV & Flixter to my tablet, and UV & Vudu to my roku boxes. works great coz now I don't have to have a bluray player in every room to enjoy a movie, and it's easily portable when I need it to be.

The digital download expires December 4, 2014, not December 4, 2012.
I missed that too though.

Hurr durr. Stoopid WB and their stoopid ultraviolet copees.

Posted on Nov 26, 2012 7:52:35 AM PST
It looks like, per the picture on the Amazon page, that this product is Ultraviolet only and will not work on iTunes. Stay classy, WB. It costs them nothing to be able to give us a real digital copy, and instead they make us use this Ultraviolet system that I and many others hate. Awesome.

pulled this from

[2.4.1] Does UltraViolet work with iTunes, iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV?

UltraViolet works fine with Apple iOS devices if you download an UltraViolet app. Flixster Movies, the first UltraViolet-compatible app (released in Oct 2011), can stream and download UltraViolet movies on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Android devices, and Windows PCs. Using Apple AirPlay mirroring, iPad2's and iPhone 4S's can play the movies through Apple TV.

UltraViolet can work with iTunes, but only if Apple chooses to participate in UltraViolet. Until then, UltraViolet movies will play on Apple devices but won't show up in iTunes.

Sooo...I would take it as this only includes a UV code, not a traditional digital copy code that is compatible with windows media and/or itunes. Nowhere does it say it's an itunes compatible copy that I've seen.

Now, I would rate this down a full star because of this as well because you are rating the product, not the movie (that's what movie review sites are for!). Why not just include a UV and regular digital copy code like was included with Prometheus! I ended up pre-ordering just a digital copy version because I have more flexibility with it, and I'll probably just pick up a cheap blu-ray only version eventually when it's under $10 so I can have the higher quality video/audio later.

If you purchased a bike on Amazon would you like to know if it was missing a chain, or a front wheel, maybe some brakes. All of the sudden this review would become extremely valuable. Now, people are getting bent out of shape because people are rating a product low, because it doesn't include a part that they feel makes the product viable. I would hope that a bike would get one star if it was missing part of what makes a bike. I will continue to make one star reviews for products that only offer an ultra-violet copy. I will support the actual movie by purchasing it from the i-tunes store, and showing the movie studio what I support with my money. If the studio wants me to buy the discs, I will be happy to do so if they include the digital medium I prefer.

People are all going on about how bad UV is, but it works quite well and has app support on multiple devices. Now what about Itunes digital copies? I can only tell the ones upset are the Apple fanboys since the interoperability of their digital copies is far lower than UV. I can't go and load Itunes digital copies on my Android phone, no I need to use Apple products. Stream using my Roku? Nope! need Apple TV...

Apple does make some good products don't get me wrong, but when I can use non-Apple products from home to on-the-go without worry of "if" I can use my digital content, it seems pretty simple of which is truly superior. I have yet to see anyone mention a "good" reason why they despise Ultraviolet, just a lot of "Itunes is better just because" arguments.

So in order to watch this movie on a Kindle we have to purchase the movie on Amazon Instant Video and not Untraviolet?
