Deal Details

Last Edited by ItsGime January 6, 2014 at 11:15 PM
First deal post - Don't kill - I'm nice and helpful - Did a search and looked through 102 familyvideo posts and did not see this one.

I always wondered what a video rental store did with all their UV codes. Now I know.

Family video sells UltraViolet codes (ONLY CODES NO DISC) for $5 for various movies. I bought Start Trek Into Darkness and The Internship. Both codes added to Flixster and my UVVU.com locker as the SD, HD, versions. VUDU has the HDX version as well.

These are good prices if you only want the digital copies. It takes approx 1 business day to receive the code. The order has to process and it appears they manually type the code in an e-mail to you.

Neither of the two I purchased said HD or SD but they included all HDX, HD and SD. I would assume that is the standard unless otherwise specified?

LOL - how about a valid point of reference for this? Also please show the separation between consumer level and corporate level. Also, Ebay taking down auctions for codes doesn't count as valid reference of a law. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) Keep in mind rental stores such as the one talked about here have different licenses for the purchases of their films. This also allows them to do things we cannot do at the consumer level such as renting them to other people and charging them for it.

This is what I was thinking. It definitely goes against the spirit of the bundle to sell the digital rights separately from the physical one.

It isn't. When you purchase a physical good without signing a contract, you have the right of first sale to that item. That includes an ultraviolet card included in your DVD/blu-ray. If they find out they could possibly take away the digital rights based on how their terms of service are written, but that doesn't mean you don't have the right to sell it.

Really. Come on trolls. I asked for valid ref and a separation of consumer vs corporation.

I agree as a consumer we are treated differently and are not supposed to sell our UV codes. But film industry corporations and their partners are not held by consumer law and can sell the codes. Here are the top 3:

A - Paramount sells digital copies directly (that provide addition to your UV locker)
B - Flixster (Time Warner) sells digital copies directly. (that provide addition to your UV locker)
C - VUDU (Walmart) sells digital copies directly. (that provide addition to your UV locker)

It might be against their terms of service, but it is certainly not illegal.

If it is illegal it's the dumbest thing on the planet... They are selling you a good that you don't need so you sell it to someone who does. It's not like selling a CD that you already ripped or a DVD that you uploaded onto your computer. It's good for only 1 use - I'd imagine if it ever made it to the supreme court they would agree but the movie industry is hopeful that you just being afraid of their ridiculous wrath is enough to keep you from rightfully selling an item you paid for but do not want.

As an aside, UV codes? Seriously??? I'll pay for an iTunes code but there's no way I'd pay for that stream only POS.

you can download to your device also. Vudu allows it. I download them all to my PS4 and phone. HDX looks great.
