I’m frustrated

Why can't i put my digital copy onto itunes so i can put it on my ipad?

i purchased the digital copy version thinking that i could watch it on my ipad. my ipad does not have 3g or 4g connection so i can not watch any of my movies on a device that i bought to watch my digital copies on. Does anyone know how to put these Ultra violent digital copies onto itunes so you can watch them on your ipad?

  • I’m glad to be able to help after all my tribulations - and amazed how these companies can get things so very wrong!!
    You have to get the Flixster App for the iPad/iPhone (It 's actually quite useful for finding movie times in local cinemas) and download it directly onto the iPad/iPhone for which, of course, you'll need wifi - you can't just put it onto your PC/Mac and move it from there onto your mobile device (duh!). Then you have to have an account with F***ster AND UV.

    AND you have to allow Warner Bros to access your details for some time (it doesn't tell you that if you choose "no" for this then it won't work at all. I've now discovered that WB own Flixster, so when it says allow WB access, it actually means allow Flixster access, which makes a little more sense. THEN you can actually download the film onto your mobile device (the whole point of a digital download!).

    Later you can delete it from the iPad/iPhone to free up some space then re-download it again in the future if you want to. However to do so, you have to open the F***ster app, choose the film, then select Download (even though you've already downloaded it). Then look for a hidden edit button in the top right corner and finally you'll be given the opportunity to delete it from your device...

    Just how complicated is that? Perhaps someone should rewrite that app too...

    Honestly WB, Flixster and UV have so badly shot themselves with all of this.

    Apple - works simply and simply works..!

    Hope this helps

    after purchasing Dark shadows bluray with digital copy I was very annoyed to learn that it was not itunes compatible. After reading about people complaining and being given itunes redemption codes I submitted my own complaint and was even more p***** when my response told me that they would not provide me with an itunes code even though i provided them with my code for uv digital. if this is the way WB is going to conduct business then they can do it without me.

  • The "official rep" only answered the question for PCs and laptops, not portable devices like iPads and iPhones.

  • I activated my UV account and entered the info in the flixster app. I went into the "my movies" and all my movies offered as UV digital copies were located there plus the couple of random free movies I received for rating movies and signing up. I then clicked on the movie and I could select to watch now (stream) or download (download to ipad to watch later WITH OR WITHOUT WI-FI connection). I then streamed a movie and it worked. I then downloaded a movie and, surprise, it worked. I then turned off my WI-FI and (drum roll) the downloaded movie played as it did before. So lets see, I can stream, download a copy to watch offline and download a copy to watch on my desktop at home. Sounds like a digital copy to me. If you cannot find the time or effort to simply switch to a different app it is probably time to take a good look at your life. The only thing I dislike about flixster/UV is I cannot download to my Seagate wireless drive and play from that. Hopefully this will be corrected in an update soon. If you can't figure out how to make a service work do not go around misleading people. iTunes is the same thing. If it is made for iTunes you are stuck managing through iTunes. Find something else to complain about, the service works fine when setup correctly

  • I have learned my way around after many moth of figuring it out. WHAT TROUBLES ME NOW IS I HAVE FOUR DIFFERNT ACCOUNT SO I can redeem my uv movies exams are Flixster Paromount and Sony AND Vudu. If only they had one place to redeem movies it would be great. At least that is my opinion.

    It took a couple of hours to download The Hobbit to my Mac. I certainly don't have the bandwith to move re-download to my phone, nor the time to re-download it to my pad. (I live in a retirement place that supplies free Wi-Fi and haven't spent the money for faster access).

    If it was on iTunes, it would only take a couple of minutes to get it on my iPad before going on a trip.
