Fifty bucks says they release their own “Paramount Movies Everywhere!” app that completely defeats the purpose of putting all of your movies together no matter who made them (unless they’re indie movies...).

This application has no explicit mapping for /error, so you are seeing this as a fallback.

There was an unexpected error (type=Internal Server Error, status=500).
LinkToRetailerCommand could not be queued for execution and no fallback available

Amazon isn't linking. Anyone else?

Found one that's good. Let's you filter by buy/rent as well as SD/HD.

(Note: Interstellar is Paramount so it's not supported.)

This is fantastic. This is why I always appreciated Disney Movies Anywhere - one code, all services. I have used a bunch of Vudu's Disc to Digital conversions, and now they're (mostly) in my Google AND Amazon libraries. This is really fantastic. I hope all the studios get on board.

Also, one great feature of DMA that is carrying over to MA - Extra features. If you use MA, and look at a movie, you will see featurettes, deleted scenes, etc that would usually be lost if viewing through a provider service. Disney/Pixar movies always had that through the DMA service.

"Movies Anywhere".


Oh and Paramount can't go do their own counter software. Paramount has one of the weakest backlogs. To do their own thing in the face of Disney, Fox, Universal, and Sony joined forces would be laughable.

Oddly enough, I have only one 4k Vudu redemption, Batman vs Superman (don't ask) and only the Theatrical Cut is MA, not the Extended.

Yeah Paramount is gonna fold eventually. They were part of UV and they have had lots of news coverage this year about how much they’ve been weakened financially.

I assume buying iTunes codes and redeeming in iTunes is the easiest. Anything available in 4K on iTunes is automatically upgraded to that whether you paid extra for 4K or not. Though there’s some exceptions like Disney Movies for now.

Yeah UV is pretty much dead at this point. UV didn't have Disney, this does. And this is compatible with the big retailers like Apple, Google, and Amazon unlike UV.

Paramount will have no choice but to fold.

Not iTunes, but the TV app. It’ll be in your library in the movies section.

(The iTunes app on iOS is just a store front basically, the TV app holds your movies/tv shows libraries)

If you linked Vudu, Vudu seems to take some time. Took about 30 minutes before they showed up. The others (DMA, Amazon, Google) however showed up instantly for me.

Vudu linked, but only showing a fraction of my titles in MA. Stuff like John Wick or Dredd don't show up.

MA is also a nightmare at showing titles. No sorting options and isn't even alphabetical by default.

As stated a few times, Vudu lags. Takes some time before they show up. Also, any movies from non supported studios (like MGM and Paramount) aren’t supported. Hopefully they jump on board eventually.

Ah okay, I'll just wait a bit then. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Also, I hope this forces other companies (like Vudu, Amazon, etc) to match Apple on free upgrades to 4K. I doubt it would happen, but that seems to be the only lack of parity in this whole thing that I'm noticing so far.

edit - update! yeah just took a bit and then everything showed up ^_^

I'm fine with just using Vudu. It's where all my movies are and linking with MA already pulled in the free movies and Amazon stuff I had on to Vudu.

I'm seeing the same thing. Lego Batman - which I got from Amazon - shows 4K/Dolby Vision in my library but when I play it the pull down menu shows it's playing in HD/Dolby Vision.

Baby Driver and Spiderman Homecoming, which I got from codes redeemed on the Bluray via the MoviesAnywhere site, show the same behavior.

Hopefully it's just a quirk being ironed out.

To be fair, there's a bit a lot of growing pains in my experience (and reading other people's experiences online) with the HD->4K upgrades on iTunes. Movies showing 4K then changing back to HD then changing back to 4K, things like that.
