[QUOTE=Kerry56;2662704]Unfortunately, UltraViolet has restrictive DRM, requires that you join Flixter, restricts the number of devices you can use, and the quality of the downloaded video is nowhere near what you can make for yourself going from original dvds or blu ray.

Netflix pulled out, and Apple isn’t part of this as you’ve pointed out. And that alone makes the Ultraviolet movies unplayable on a huge number of portable devices.[/QUOTE]

Funny, I was just going to point out that if all these media giants, especially Sony, like this service so much, it MUST be bogged down in DRM. Can you say “rip-off”?
