About Kaleidescape and UltraViolet
Kaleidescape elevates your home cinema experience by making movie discovery, purchase, and playback effortless, flawless, and thoroughly enjoyable. Kaleidescape combines movie players and servers with online selection and delivery of the highest quality movies, making it the best content source to power an immersive home cinema.
Kaleidescape has supported UltraViolet since the launch of the Kaleidescape online movie store in 2013. Titles purchased from the store require a Kaleidescape system for playback. In order to benefit from UltraViolet (UV), you must own a Kaleidescape system, and you must link your Kaleidescape movie store account to your UV account. UltraViolet enables you to play any UV-enabled title you purchase from Kaleidescape on a non-Kaleidescape device, using a third-party playback app. UV also enables you to download to your Kaleidescape system (from the Kaleidescape movie store) any UV-enabled title you purchase from a third-party retailer, at no charge.
The UltraViolet Shutdown Announcement
On January 31, 2019, the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the organization that runs UltraViolet (UV), announced that the UV service will shut down later this year. Because of this, Kaleidescape is required to disconnect from the UV service on May 31, 2019.
The UV shutdown will not impact movies that are already on your Kaleidescape system. However, your system will no longer be linked to UV after May 31, 2019. Movies purchased from other UV retailers prior to your system becoming unlinked will continue to be available for download and playback on your Kaleidescape system in perpetuity. Similarly, other UV retailers will continue to offer you the ability to play UV-enabled titles purchased from Kaleidescape prior to your system becoming unlinked from UV.
