A great part of owning movies and TV shows is sharing your collection. You can help your parents understand why everyone now “volunteers as tribute,” or get your roommate to finish watching Breaking Bad so he finally understands all the references.

Sharing is a great way to get the most value from your collection, introduce people to some great movies and TV shows, and even become a little closer as family and friends.

That’s why we’re excited to launch Share My Movies by VUDU—a new feature that lets you easily and safely share your UltraViolet movies and TV shows.

Share My Movies lets you invite up to five people to join and watch your Library of UltraViolet movies and TV shows. You only need a VUDU account and an UltraViolet Library to start. (You can do both on VUDU.com. They’re free and take only seconds).

Share My Movies is a safer way to share because the people you invite get their own username and password. You never have to give out yours. This means you can get the most value out of your purchases, show off your collection AND never have to worry about accidental purchases or changes to your account.

And since invited users watch through their own VUDU accounts, they can use their favorite devices without it counting toward your VUDU device limit. They can download or stream your movies and shows on just about any device—from a smartphone to a smart TV. Share My Movies also supports up to three simultaneous streams, so you can watch together, even when apart.

And the best part of Share My Movies is that it’s free. No extra fees, no subscriptions (or subscription tiers) and no limit on number of viewings. Thousands of UltraViolet movies and TV shows are already available to own and share, and more are added all the time.

Share My Movies by VUDU is open to all users, so invite your friends and family to discover VUDU and your collection of digital movies and TV shows.

    If my friend is linked to my account and I go out and purchase a new movie and add the movie using the UltraViolet code will he be able to see it and watch it?

    Yes!

    If my friend who I have joined accounts with for some reason unlinks me, will I lose the movies I have paid for and uploaded?

    Hi Jc,

    It sounds like you have joined your friend’s UltraViolet Library. If you are unlinked from that Library, you will still have the movies that you purchased through VUDU all accessible on VUDU. However, the UltraViolet rights will belong to your friend’s UltraViolet Library.

    Hope this helps.

    I purchased Cars online from VUDU to share with my grandchildren on linked accounts. The movie shows up normal on my account but my grandchildren are asked to pay for the movie to watch it. Is there some type of catch to movies purchased directly from VUDU?

    Hi Steve,

    Sorry but Disney movies are not eligible for Share My Movies. Only titles with the UltraViolet logo work with Share My Movies.

    I have a vudu account and was invited from a friend to share his library but when running through the steps it won’t let me. What should i do?

    Hi Karisa,

    It could be several things. Please contact our support team and have as much information as you can on hand so we can figure it out. Support@vudu.com or 1 (888) 554-8838.

    How do I remove a user from my account? He no longer shares my UV account, but still appears as “accepted” in the list of “Invitations Status & History”. I want to remove from there, since it appears that I only have a limited number of invitation slots on that screen?

    Hi Matthew,

    What you see on the VUDU site is just a history of invitations so some people you invite will still show ‘accepted’ even if you remove them.
    To remove them, you’ll have to visit UltraViolet’s site at http://www.uvvu.com, then log in and remove the user in the account settings page.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi. Can I somehow sync my flixster movies to my vudu acct?

    Hi Heather!

    You can sync some of your Flixster movies if they are UltraViolet compatible and you connect both your Flixster and VUDU accounts to the same UltraViolet library. Hope this helps.
