Wish they (UV & Well GoUSA) could work out a UV rights agreement. This is again on sale at Vudu (Digital Only though) for $14.99

Earlier on Walmart gave an Instawatch copy (for Vudu locked single acct.) of Ip Man (1) but I haven't seen it since. That would be a great deal for $15 if Wally would also give the Instawatch (Vudu locked copy) too.

There are two other Ip Man movies not starring Donnie Yen, Ip Man Legend is Born and Ip Man Final Fight.

Hello Blade "but I ALWAYS rep" D Wink hug

You probably already know this but many might not and the sites don't go far enough IMHO in making sure everyone buying movies is aware of this.
So not every movie that Vudu or FandangoNow or Cinemanow etc. sells is UV - Ultraviolet.
The IP Man 1,2,3 are perfect examples. So what I mean is, IF you buy IP Man 1,2,3 on VUDU they are not only locked into that ONE account, they are also locked into VUDU ONLY.
What that means: Say you have 5 other people sharing your UV account - NONE of them will see IP Man 1,2,3 on THEIR accounts. The title will ONLY appear on the account of the person who purchased it (Because it is NOT UV - so it does not get shared to the other family accounts sharing the library on UV).

Not only that, but ALSO since it is not UV - IF you bought it on VUDU, it would not show up or be shared with your linked accounts for FandangoNow, Cinemanow, or Flixster etc. because again it is NOT UV.

When Walmart offered an InstaWatch copy of IP Man 1 - because IP Man 1 doesn't have UV rights, it is Vudu locked. Many many Instawatch titles are for movies that have UV rights, so in those cases once you get the Instawatch copy in VUDU, it is essentially treated like a purchase on VUDU or a Vudu Code redemption and because it's a UV title your UV acct./library gets the rights to stream it and shared among the UV Family Library and with the other services that have the rights to stream that title that you have linked back to your UV libary. (Since IP Man 1,2,3 aren't UV though, that doesn't apply unless Well Go USA makes an UV agreement at some point in the future).

I hope this tangent example doesn't make things more confusing but I'm sharing it because although I LOVE UV & Vudu et. al. there are still growing pains and issues to work out.
I learned this, the hard way back when Viggle allowed us to redeem credits for movies on (M-Go - Which is now FandangoNow). Back then I bought a copy of two of the Hunger Games movies and M-Go (at that time) did NOT have an agreement with the studios for the UV rights to those two movies. So for a time, those two movies were LOCKED into M-Go. Although Vudu had them and also had the UV agreements already worked out, M-Go had not at that point (in fairness to them, they were the new kid on the block) so I could only see those movies when on M-Go and could only play them on that one accout on M-Go. It never occurred to me that if VUDU had something listed as including UV that the others wouldn't as well. The mistake was short lived because M-Go (now FandangoNow) eventually negotiated the UV rights to those and other titles I had stuck in M-Go limbo and once they did that, by contacting (FandangoNow) they use a new ALID and the movies get added to our UV library and then appear on VUDU and the other services I have connected to that UV Library, it was all good.
I still have a movie that will likely be permanently stuck there and TV SHOWS.... they are more NOT UV than they are UV so be extra careful where you buy TV shows that you accept they may be locked into that one service for ever at this point. (Hopefully, the TV studios jump on board quicker in the future but again no guarantees).

So anyway, point is Well Go USA may at some point in the future work out an agreement or get bought by some studio that works out an agreement with the UV system (but i wouldn't hold my breath). MGM still hasn't added a lot of their titles to UV system and is slow walking like crazy the UV DIGITAL HD codes they let Fox package with their movie distribution so expecting a Foreign movie studio to do something that has never been done to my knowledge yet, when there are still semi-Major US Studios with a huge catalog that just barely has a toe stuck in the water is not super likely to happen.

If you buy the IP Man 1,2,3 on Vudu it can only be watched with that ONE account & only on VUDU. If you buy IP Man 1,2,3 On FandangoNow you can only watch it on that ONE Account on FandangoNow.... Etc. etc.
For me, my TV currently has VUDU, FandangoNow, Cinemanow & I do most of my streaming on my TV so although I will prefer VUDU, if the price is less elsewhere I could buy from any of them..

If I traveled a lot and say Tablets or mobile phones where my main streaming viewing place I would have different answers because VUDU and FandangoNow recently abandoned my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (Quad core table) and will no longer offer working apps for it so that's kind of $#itty and might make me happy that I bought something from CinemaNow (because it still plays on it) if i traveled a lot.
