INFO: Sharing your Ultraviolet Movie Collection with Others

February 6, 2017


(Note: If you don’t know what Ultraviolet is, please read the following post first about owning & managing legitimate streaming movie collections)

Did you know you can share your Ultraviolet digital movie library with up to 5 other people at no cost?

It’s true.  Just by logging into your Ultraviolet service provider (like VUDU.COM), you can type in the email addresses of up to 5 people to grant them FULL ACCESS to your entire library of movies.  No need to share your username & password.

Basically, once you’ve invited them, if they are already Ultraviolet users, they will see & keep the movies purchases on their service as well as see your UltraViolet titles as well.

There is one catch:  At least under VUDU, friends using your library can only see & connect to one Ultraviolet library at a time.  This means:

  • If they have a personal Ultraviolet library, they will cease to see that library when they join your library.  (They can always switch back)
  • They will continue to see the movies they’ve explicitly purchased on the service they’ve chosen. (Flixster, VUDU, etc.) While you will be granted full Ultraviolet rights for the purchased movie in your UV library, your service library is separate from UV & will still be visible.

(Again, I think this is specific to VUDU however I don’t know how Ultraviolet sharing is implemented on any other platform because I haven’t seen Ultraviolet sharing available elsewhere.)
