Sorely needed - would almost make me consider using such a service. Ripping Blurays + plex is still more flexible, though, for the technically inclined.

I linked my Amazon and Google accounts but no free movies. Hopefully they get this sorted soon.

EDIT: They just showed up. Apparently it's just moving slowly.

The only movies I've bought with Amazon or Google were Disney movies, but I got my free 5 anyway (well... 3, since I already had the Lego Movie and Big Hero 6).

Yeah I was able to link Amazon and iTunes last night, but it seems like they reset everything and now I can't relink iTunes now. Vudu still doesn't work.

I wonder if some movies I have on Vudu in SD from codes in cheap DVDs will port to iTunes as HD through this?

edit: well some SD stuff I had from way back when on Amazon ported over as SD so I'm guessing it won't from Vudu either then

These kind of glitches are expected.

We had the old style five person share off of an ultraviolet library. This is not better from a sharing point of view it appears.

Going forward our only solution seems to be piecemealing the connections across each other's accounts rather than a shared out library. I don't love this.

I resolved it, you have to unlink your MA account through the AppStore.

This is amazing. The disconnect between digital services was so silly. I always appreciated when I a disc would come with iTunes and Vudu since i have an apple tv. It was frustrating having to bounce back and forth between apps though trying to figure out which belonged where.

So how does this work? If I buy an HD copy of a film from Google Play for example, does that get updated to 4K through iTunes, or would it still just appear as HD?
I have managed to create a US Movies Anywhere account & linked my UK Google Play account to it. Amazon, iTunes & Vudu need US accounts though.
Vudu is linked to my UK Ultraviolet account, so it will be interesting to see if those films carry over

Put my digital copy of Rogue One on the wrong DMA account back in April, and was told I had to call in order to move it to the correct account. I have a feeling that I've probably lost that digital license forever with this new fangled set up, as I've already merged this new account with my main DMA account.

Hit the drop down in the top right corner and hit Migrate DMA. That should do it.

There is a separate option to merge it with the DMA account.

Is DMA down too? Wreck it Ralph wasn't showing up in my Google library, but I think it's because it originally was linked from DMA?

I can't seem to sign into my account there.

Nah, just call in and have them fix it.

Just unlinked my iTunes from last night using the iTunes app. Now I'm re-linked ok.. just waiting for Vudu and don't care about Amazon. Have nothing there, and only use for Prime content I can't get anywhere else.

I ran the app, signed in with my Google account, it found my Disney account as soon as it logged in, but the options in the left pane are grayed out and it says Guest at the top.

Edit: exited app and ran it again and now all is well.

Yeah, hopefully UV sticks around for a while or MA adds family sharing.

Makes me a little nervous that I don't really understand how all this shit works together. If I own movies on UV/Vudu, and I link with Movies Anywhere, and then UV dies completely and Vudu shuts down entirely, will I still have my movies on Movies Anywhere?

And why's everyone talking about transferring to iTunes? Don't I just move everything to Movies Anywhere and use all their apps and shit? Is there a Movies Anywhere Roku app?

But this sounds very consumer friendly and the best of all possible worlds?

I'm still confused about the non-VUDU Ultraviolet redemptions. I don't have a ton, but whenever I redeemed, I used Flixster just because that happened to be the first one I signed up for. Can I get those in there?

Didnt realize Vudu was such an issue for some people. I've had my Vudu account for years and not once did I have an issue with the service.

The only thing I didnt like is when I purchase a BD/4K like Wonder Woman and the code is for WB's streaming service. I hate signing up for studio only services.
