Today Flixster Video contacted subscribers to notify them that they plan to shut down the service.
Effective today you will no longer be able to redeem digital codes on Flixster for playback of videos in the U.S. On February 20th, 2018 Flixster Video will shut down all operations including its website.
When you visit the Flixster Video website you are greeted with this message:
To our Flixster Video US Customers:
Flixster Video no longer supports redemption of digital codes or playback of videos in the U.S. You will still be able to watch videos in your collection and redeem your digital codes through Vudu. If you have not done so already, we encourage you to sign up or log in to your account at Vudu and to link your UltraViolet library to your Vudu account.
And now, you can also link your Vudu account to Movies Anywhere, a new service that brings together your movie library from Vudu and other major digital retailers – such as iTunes, Amazon Video, and Google Play – in one place so that you can watch your movies when and where you want. Television shows and some movies are not currently available in Movies Anywhere, but you will still be able to watch any of those titles in your collection on Vudu.
If you want to save your UltraViolet library you need to act now and move the movies as described in the emails to MoviesAnywhere. Make sure to let your friends know so they do not lose access to their movies.
