The UltraViolet digital locker service will disappear, but now there is a video and television library in service, there is no need. While your account is linked to a small retailer, your library must be secure.
It must be said that "must be", according to the written statement, UltraViolet has not yet fully determined all the details. If you live in the United States and at least five retailers nowadays – Fandango Now, Kaleidescape, Paramount, Verizon FiOS or Vudu – you will have full access to your library after UltraViolet after July 31.
There are still issues. According to his questions, "The majority of the libraries available to UltraViolet Libraries, and perhaps all of them, still available today, are still available to these merchants." That is, everyone else can access. The title of your library explains how to handle copyrights. Here is another argument to add more than one trade, if possible: if a company does not have the rights of a particular product, maybe another company.
We're going to hear more about UltraViolet and participating retailers. Things are going forward. Meanwhile, here you can take some steps now.
- If you are unsure if your account is related to retailers, go to the UltraViolet user page, sign in and click the "Retail Services" link above.
- If your account is not at least linked to one of these retailers, or if you want to connect to the second one, it's not a bad idea to do it as soon as possible. Go to this page and choose the vendor that offers the most convenient sense. (If you are not in the U.S., the same page would be a list of available vendors).
- Keep up to your email address and check the UltraViolet FAQ every week to check your store and information about your library.
July is still six months old, but do it this time, so you will not be able to turn yourself in the summer vacation shade.
