The digital copy service will be shutting down on July 31, 2019.

Physical media once again emerges the winner in the digital vs. physical debate, with UltraViolet users informed late last week that the UV service will be closing down.

UV’s demise doesn’t mean the end of your digital library, however. Your digital copies will still be accessible through previously linked retailers, and linking your library to additional participating retailers can maximise access.

The fact that the purchase of a physical DVD or Blu-ray was required to get one of those inserts with the UV code means you already have the movie/TV series, and always will. UV was simply added value that enabled access to your library on the go – and the preferable option to that old extra disc that contained a digital copy and just took up space in the case once you’d downloaded it.
