Can I stream and download UltraViolet movies on iOS?

Last Updated: Apr 11, 2012 12:58PM PDT
You can stream full-length movies on wifi or 3G, or download them to watch offline.  To use the movie streaming feature on iOS you must have one of the following devices: iPhone 3GS, 4, or 4S; third or fourth generation iPod Touch; or iPad 1, 2, or 3. You must be using iOS version 4.0 or above (5.0 and above for 3rd generation iPod Touch). Download and offline viewing require Flixster app version 5.0 or above.

To access your movies:
  1. Purchase a Blu-ray disc or DVD that includes an UltraViolet™ Digital Copy.
  2. Redeem the included UltraViolet™ Digital Copy on Flixster's website by entering the redemption code included with your purchase.
  3. Install the Flixster Movies app on your device.
  4. Open the app, go to the Home tab (or the My Movies tab on iPad), and scroll down to the Accounts section.
  5. Log into Facebook or Flixster (the account you used to redeem your movie online).
  6. Once you've logged in, your movie collection will appear on the Home tab under the Featured section.
To watch movies:
  • To play on wifi or 3G, tap on the movie you'd like to play, then on the "Watch Now" button on its details page.
  • To download your UltraViolet movies to your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, tap on the movie you want to download, then on the purple Download button on the next page.  Once the download is complete, you'll watch it from the Flixster app. Tap on Watch Now, and the app will default to offline viewing.
