UltraViolet Accounts Open for Business5 Oct, 2011 By: Chris Tribbey
Less than a week before the first UltraViolet-enabled title is available to consumers, the buy-once-play-anywhere cloud system opened for business Oct. 5, allowing people to sign up for the service at UVVU.com.
After signing up, the consumer’s home page shows which UltraViolet-enabled devices and applications they can use, and which titles they have enabled. Under “Our Media,” consumers can search their UltraViolet content by genre, types and by retailer, if the purchase wasn’t a Blu-ray Disc. Users can add up to five more members to the account and decide who has access to what.
The home page also lists the titles announced thus far that will include UltraViolet: Horrible Bosses (Oct. 11), Green Lantern (Oct. 14), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (Nov. 11) The Smurfs (Dec. 2) and Friends With Benefits (Dec. 2).
