Understanding Ultraviolet Movies

Before diving into the specific process of watching Ultraviolet movies on Apple TV, it's critical to understand what Ultraviolet movies are. Ultraviolet was a cloud-based digital rights locker for films and television shows, allowing you to buy a movie or TV show and access it across multiple platforms and devices.

The key benefit of Ultraviolet was its ability to bring together your digital media collection in one accessible place. This meant you could watch your favorite movies or catch up on your beloved series whenever and wherever you wanted.

Its collaborations with big-name companies like Sony, Paramount and Universal meant that Ultraviolet had a highly diverse and ever-expanding catalog. With Ultraviolet, classics and new releases were equally at your fingertips. The sheer range it offered was unequaled; from action thrillers to artistic drama, and from cutting-edge animation to timeless family joy, it truly had something for everyone.

But there's a sad part. In 2019, Ultraviolet stopped its service. You'd think that would put an end to your digital collection, however, you'd be wrong. It's no longer possible to create a new Ultraviolet account, but, Ultraviolet made it possible for its users to keep their existing movie collections, making it accessible through several retailers who partnered with them before. That's where our Apple TV jumps into the fun, acting as the perfect device to access and enjoy your Ultraviolet movie library. The following sections will guide you on exactly how to do that. Stay tuned to get your Apple TV connected to your Ultraviolet movie collection in few easy steps. Precise instructions await you.

Setting Up Your Ultraviolet Account

One critical step to watch Ultraviolet movies on Apple TV is setting up your Ultraviolet account. Even though Ultraviolet has stopped providing new services, their partnership with several retailers allows trouble-free access to already purchased movies.

Your first task is to locate your Ultraviolet library. Since Ultraviolet's closure in July 2019, FandangoNow and Vudu have absorbed parts of the Ultraviolet movie private library. Both platforms function as digital storefronts for renting and purchasing films, but also provide digital lockers for users' selections.

The tying up of Vudu or FandangoNow to successful accessibility to your Ultraviolet movies on Apple TV cannot be overstated. To locate your Ultraviolet collection on these platforms:

  • Visit FandangoNow or Vudu's website.
  • Log in using your Ultraviolet credentials.
  • Confirm that your movies are visible in the services' digital locker area.

Connecting your Ultraviolet collection to your Apple TV is your subsequent task. While both FandangoNow and Vudu have dedicated Apple TV apps, your approach may differ based on your retailer.

To establish connectivity to your FandangoNow account, follow these instructions:

  • Download the FandangoNow app on your Apple TV.
  • Launch the app and input your account credentials.
  • Your Ultraviolet collection should manifest itself within the app after a successful login.

For Vudu users, the approach is similar. You download the Vudu app from the Apple Store, launch it, and log in using your credentials. Your Ultraviolet movie collection will then become visible on the app's homepage.

By completing these steps, you are one stride closer to reviving your Ultraviolet cinematic experiences on Apple TV.
