UltraViolet is an easy and convenient way to store your movies and shows while enjoying access to them anytime, anywhere. You can purchase UltraViolet movies and shows from Universal, Paramount, Sony, Nook, Kalidescape, CinemaNow, M-Go, Wallmart and Target.

How do I watch my movies?

You can watch anytime, anywhere on your:

  • TVs
  • Computers
  • Tablets
  • Game consoles
  • Set top boxes
  • Blu-ray players
  • Internet TVs
  • Smartphones


My family can never agree on what to watch together. Can we each watch our own show at the same time?
Yes. 3 online streams and unlimited downloaded versions are allowed at the same time. Up to 6 people can be on the same account – each account can be organized and have it’s own security rules.

Is UltraViolet a fly-by-night company?
Not at all. UltraViolet has been around since 2010 and is backed by leading entertainment companies.  There are over 9 million UV accounts and over 12,000 available titles.
Please know that Disney and MGM are currently not releasing any of their titles to UltraViolet. 

Can I make backup copies of my UltraViolet movies?
Yes. Once you download your movie or show, you can make copies and even save backups to cloud storage.   

Fine print:
Streaming of a given title from the selling UltraViolet Retailer more than a year after its purchase, or at any time via Streaming Services other than the selling UltraViolet Retailer, may incur fees and if so any such fees would be presented to the consumer in advance of streaming titles, with the consumer having the option to accept the fees or not use that Streaming Service.
See your retailer for their rules and regulations.
