Watch movies in 4K UHD
To watch 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) quality videos, you’ll need:
  • A compatible device:
  • Download speed of at least 15 megabits per second.

Without compatible TVs, or strong bandwidth, your video will continue to play in HD or SD quality.

Watch movies you’ve already bought in 4K
Some SD and HD movies that you’ve already bought might be upgraded to 4K. To be updated to 4K, movies must be:
  • Bought or redeemed from Google Play or YouTube.
    • Only SD movies bought or redeemed before October 23, 2018 will be upgraded.
  • From Fox, Lionsgate, NBC Universal, Sony (US only), or Warner Bros.
  • Available in 4K, in your location.

Note: Upgraded Family Library purchases can be shared at 4K quality.

Find movies upgraded to 4K in your library
You’ll only be able to do these steps if you have movies that have been upgraded to 4K and if you have the latest version of the Google Play Movies & TV app. Learn how to upgrade your app.
  • On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Play Movies & TV app
  • Tap Library.
  • At the top, tap Upgraded to 4K.
  • The upgraded movie will automatically play in the highest quality available for your device.

Can access it no problem anywhere without a VPN. You need a US VPN to access VUDU here though, but not MA.


Yes you can, I set up my Movies Anywhere with a VPN no problem at all.

I'm not sure he is going to give a flying ........ once he is dead. Even if he had all those blu rays, the family would throw them all away due to discs being obsolete.

You can set it up if you know someone in the States. I've got it and have all my eligible Libraries linked, including VUDU.

You don't need someone in the States, all you need is a VPN to set up a VUDU account and a Movies Anywhere account. Takes minutes to do and you don't need a VPN to access Movies Anywhere once it's been setup.

Depends on the VPN, I suppose. When I did it, I tried a few and none worked, but I got someone to do it for me in the States.

I can set up movies anywhere from my vpn but it’s picky which ones work
Has The Martian been updated?
Has anyone who has got the upgrade, previously linked to Movies Anywhere? Wondering if the fact I've got mine linked is what stops the upgrade going through...

If you Google setting up Movies Anywhere with VPN, there's a fair bit out there. The ones I tried didn't work so it's hit-and-miss.
Class cheers
As far as I'm aware most of these 4k upgrades are from canadian codes I don't think UK codes upgrade.

I bought all mine in the UK play store or with UK ultraviolet codes. Never been to Canada lol
Does anyone know if it will upgrade movies transferred from flixster or will it only upgrade movies bought directly from Google play? I've only had ready player one upgraded, which I bought directly from Google. Thanks.

I honestly wouldn't remember which VPN I used as it was a while ago but the sign up process is straightforward. It's the same with VUDU as well.

If you search here on HUKD as there was a large thread on Movies Anywhere when it launched and all the details are in it.

Strange, I have Abominable but it hasnt upgraded. Wonder what the criteria is, or maybe its just staggered and phased upgrades so have to wait a while...

Should upgrade anything in your collection regardless of where it came from.

Google did 4K upgrades on accounts back at the end of 2018 and it upgraded films in my account that were from Flixster, VUDU and Movies Anywhere.
Virtually the whole of my collection has been upgraded to a 4K option - I didn’t even have to do anything , just there when I checked

Yeah I use Windscribe but it's the location you click inside it that depends if it will work or not.

I've had none upgraded so far, my library has over 500 movies so will inform things as they are added
Uk google play is trash compared to the Canadian google play basically only Disney and marvel films don’t get a free upgrade to 4K
