Review: UltraViolet

One of the great companies I met at BritMums Live was Warner Bros., who introduced us to the brilliant new service, UltraViolet.  This new version of DVDs means that they come with a special code which you can use to create an online library of your DVD titles, which you can then access anywhere on any device.  Genius!

So no more scratched DVDs to ruin your evening; no more losing that treasured DVD on holiday, or down the back of the sofa; no more boring car journeys, as long as you have a handy tablet with you for the kids.  It will even help liven up lengthy trips to relatives, as you can access your DVD library any time, anywhere, and watchable via all sorts of devices.

UltraViolet is an all-new way to collect, access and enjoy your movies and TV shows in the cloud – brought to you by a growing list of companies building UltraViolet into their online stores, video apps and devices.


Once you have your first UltraViolet disc, you need to set up a Flixster account, which can be accessed via your Facebook log in if you wish, and is so easy to set up, even I could do it!  Then you need to create an UltraViolet account, which is dead easy too!  Don't worry though, the information in the DVD talks you through it all anyway.

When your library is set up, any other UltraViolet titles you buy can be added to it, and your collection can grow and grow.  The titles can also be downloaded on to individual devices to use without an Internet connection, great for when you don't want to rack up roaming charges abroad, or if you want to take your laptop on holiday with you, for example.

We have several films in our collection so far, as well as some great retro cartoons which Lara loves.  We had a fab night earlier in the week when we all snuggled up on the sofa with some home made popcorn and watched the hilarious antics of Tom & Jerry, Tweety Pie and Bugs Bunny, courtesy of warner Bros.  A real trip down memory lane!

If you would like to add to, or kickstart, your own UltraViolet collection, Warner Bros. have given me a copy of Bugs Bunny to give away to one lucky reader.  This giveaway will be starting very soon.

You can find out lots more about UltraViolet on the website, including a handy what's it all about and how to video.  But here's a brief summary of the benefits of UltraViolet:

•The best thing about UV is that it enables you to future proof your film collection, so if discs get scratched, snapped or drawn on by little ones, you are still able to watch the film again and again


•You can access the digital copy with or without an internet connection with the option of being able to stream or download the films

•You're able to stream and download the film to a huge range of devices meaning you can pretty much watch the film anywhere on anything! It really does give you much more freedom to watch your favourite TV programs and films.
