Many of these are Mobile Disc 2 Digital or D2D @ home for $2 giving a UV copy and where applicable Movies Anywhere copy (I didn't check the list for which ones are MA or not - just look for the MA icon on each page at Vudu or search for them directly on Movies Anywhere's site.

Microsoft is not a part of MA like there were a part of Disney Movies Anywhere. So future purchases will not port out of there and will be ecosystem locked until or unless they work out an agreement with Disney and become a part of MA.

Can this connect to Movies Anywhere or another online service? After Microsoft shut down their music service and made you download all your music go keep it, I don't really want to invest much money in their system.

No, it's one of the few services that doesn't support Movies Anywhere.

Great price, but...
how are these watched?
is there an app for streaming boxes (roku/firetv/etc)? mobile apps?

all i'm seeing is
"Rent or buy a movie or TV show from the Windows Store, the Xbox Store, or the Web and it will instantly appear in the Movies & TV app on your Microsoft devices.* Need to watch the latest movies and TV shows now? If you have a broadband connection, stream to watch instantly. Travelling? Download to your Windows PC, Tablet or Windows Phone so you can enjoy it on the road, even without an internet connection. "

"Watch with the Microsoft Movies & TV app on your device. When you rent or buy from Microsoft, it's playable on Windows, Windows Phone, and Xbox"

The locked eco-system is a no-go for me. This is worse than Apple/iTunes.

I would hesitate to buy movies from Microsoft right now. You can't watch the movies anywhere beside Windows/ Xbox devices, and there may be some chance Microsoft will kill the service leaving you have no streaming access like CinemaNow (you can probably download the purchased movies with Microsoft).

Amazon sucks so bad this year.
Microsoft, Apple, Google have holidays deals.
I guess crooked Jeff Bezos doesn't give a crap about Holidays.

Own is kind of misleading for *any* digital video. It's more like "watch on their platform until their licence expires then it sucks to be you" There are enough horror stories online about this

I've always been pretty anti piracy, but I've experienced these horror stories. It seems like there's no legitimate way to own digital movies. Pushes me toward piracy.

Licenses shift with different companies so i don't know if there is a real solution besides piracy. You can't have only ONE company with all the licenses, that's a monopoly and nobody likes those (except the company and stockholders), not to mention little to no innovation.........

you're confusing digital ownership of these titles versus things like Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc.

once you own it, you own it. you have the movie on your HDD/SSD. it doesn't matter if it gets pulled from the market. You can always redownload something that you purchase. And if for some reason, someone blows up Microsoft and all their servers or Microsoft completely removes their store, you still can play back the copy you have on your HDD.
