I use flixter on the roku is bypasses the region restriction! Least for now if I want to watch USA film on iPad I use a proxy server like a VPN
I use the free trile of hot spot even though you only get 7 days you can still load it up and use the flixter app
Though I use flixter to watch, I use vudu to register the codes my vuuv locker is attached to both
I cople of films I've bought codes for have not transferd to my flixter account
Lone Ranger ,I realise because Disney
I've got journey 2 code that won't redeem vi vudu
And I carnt fool flixter in to believing I'm from USA so have not been able to register it so far
I've tryed a few VPN apps and a proxy server but flixter still seems to know I'm in the uk
All so I have 2 USA iTunes codes and have not been able to redeem them ither
As I also have Apple TV but. Didn't really use it since I've got the roku
To check if a movie with export to your Flixster account follow these steps.
1. Search the movie in Vudu.
2. Look at the Overview tab.
3. Look next to the studio.
4. If there is a UV logo the movie will import. If not it's stuck in Vudu.
You can search that so you can tell before you convert a movie.
Ok, here is another breakdown of the services and how they work....
First, you have UltraViolet, which essentially is what format we are converting our DVDs and Blu-Rays to when using the disc to digital service. You get to choose whether you want SD or HD/HDX but ultimately, no matter which you choose, it's still UltraViolet digital format.
Second, you have your digital streaming and/or download providers who allow you to link your UltraViolet account aka your UV cloud, to their program, app, etc to allow full access (most of the time) to your collection. These companies include but are not limited to: VUDU [Walmart], Flixster, Target Ticket, & Cinema Now [Best Buy]. For the U.S., these are the main providers who allow this kind of access to your UV cloud at the current time and personally, I prefer a combination of VUDU and Flixster, even though I have not used much of Target Ticket or Cinema Now, they don't seem to offer as much (will elaborate soon) as the before mentioned 2.
Lastly, you have what each company offers to the table. Flixster offers full support for PC and Apple, not to mention support for iOS, Android, and I believe Windows phones as well. They also offer Xbox and Playstation support for their consoles. I stream movies and shows from my Samsung Galaxy S (yes, the original. I'm cheap and if it's not broke, don't fix it kinda guy) almost on a daily basis while bored at work. The beauty of their service is they allow you (and for quite some time now) to download your videos to your device so you can watch them while offline. This is perfect for times when you know you might be going into areas with bad service for prolonged periods of time so you can download a few titles to watch while in the "dead zone," so to speak. VUDU also offers something similar through their VUDU To Go application but I have not used it yet nor do I know if they have mobile device and/or tablet app support. Other members, who may or may not know the EXACT details on their services ~cough~umbry~cough~, would be able to inform you better of the things they offer.
So we do have an app on iOS and some Android devices such as Galaxy and the more current and new. Needs to be running the latest version of the Android OS. If its not marketed on TV we usually do not support it or its in the works. We also work on Nook HD, but not KIndle. Amazon hates it, kinda like Disney.
You can download to the device through the APP and watch offline.
