The UltraViolet service is getting easier to use through its partnership with Flixster movie streaming. You can now register UltraViolet movies, or stream movies from your computer's media library using the Flixster app for computers, iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets, and through the Flixster app for Google TV.
To celebrate (and get the word out), Flixster is allowing users to "Gift" movies to their friends through Facebook. Those who accept the gift will set up a Flixster account that includes the free digital movie title. It really becomes yours. You can even download the movie to a computer. You can't choose which movie you gift or get, but it is free nonetheless.
If you have an UltraViolet account, you will have to grant Flixster permission to access the library so you can stream your movies.
The choices grants Warner Bros. access to your UltraViolet account. This is because Warner Bros. owns Flixster. It would make more sense if it read "allow Flixster to access your UltraViolet account."
You can grant access for six months, a year, or choose not to link your accounts.
