Welcome to the Digital Movie Thread!
As many of you know, several blu-rays and DVDs come with a digital copy code to redeem on sites like Vudu, iTunes, and recently, Movies Anywhere.
Movies Anywhere came out over a year ago (or around that time) and allows you to connect accounts across retailers. Below is a list of all participating retailers. This is from my account, so it’s showing what I’ve linked/connected and what I still have open to connect if I wanted to.
It’s a great resource to be able to connect libraries together and access your digital content across the board. Certain production companies are not part of Movies Anywhere yet, like MGM, Lionsgate, and Paramount. So when you’re deciding on a retailer to redeem a movie in, make sure it’s a place you use, like Vudu, or it’s a title that is Movies Anywhere compatible. You can tell it’s compatible by the little MA icon. Vudu and moviesanywhere.com are the easiest places to tell if it’s compatible. See the example below:
Here’s a fun little tip and trick. If you have a movie from an HD blu-ray (NOT A 4K DISC) and the option to redeem in iTunes and it’s a Movies Anywhere compatible movie, ALWAYS choose iTunes because your title will automatically be upgraded to 4K.
How does this relate to Soundcore? Well, many of the 4K titles on Vudu offer Dolby Atmos and the Infini Pro allows playback with Dolby Atmos support! I personally haven’t experience how it sounds yet, but there are some members here like @TheBeardedTechGuy who has one.
Questions, comments, anything?
