Found 26th Oct 2014
log into your blinkbox acvout or create one on your PC and you can now link your UV account to blink box.

As most smart TVs don't support Ultraviolet apps this is a great way to access your library.

if you don't have blinkbox but have uv films its free to setup an account.

don't forget blinkbox is on quite a few consoles too and most tablets. so could use them on your TV. I know flixter is out on most tabs tho.

Cheers for the info

Ahh i forgot its on my PS3... RESULT!!

Linked them but not showing in my blinkbox.

I only had one of my UV films show in blinkbox, I think you can only access films that blinkbox can show, have right to

Sometimes it takes a while before fils show/update on blinkbox

Thanks, takes a few moments for films to show up in blinkbox, but works great

Awesome! Thanks OP

Brilliant. Thanks OP!

blinkbox Also supports Chromecast so you can cast it from a tablet to any TV with Chromecast connected.

Great tip!

Slight quibble - for any one who cares about films being displayed in their correct aspect ratio - whereas the UV / Flixster / VUDU versions on my account are shown in their correct aspect ratio... A lot of the Blink Box counterparts have been cropped / zoomed in for 16x9 TV.

Prime examples, Lego Movie and The Goonies. Both of which are 2.35 on UV / Flixster / VUDU, but are cropped to 1.85 on BlinkBox.
I'm sure there are more, but these are the two I have tested so far.

Just to potentially burst peoples bubbles... sorry.

Cheers heat added

Thank OP. Now I can watch Breaking Bad (for the third time through) on my TV through my Xbox One!

Where do your movies/tv series show up in the Blinkbox app? Just under "My Library"? Only seeing the stuff I bought through Blinkbox there?

seems some people's libraries take longer than others to update. mine was almost instant.

But I've only got about 10 UV films.

contact blinkbox support ?

have bought movies from tesco in the past used club card for purchase and its automatically been added to our blink box account without even opening the box

I linked my ultraviolet account and none of my redeemed stuff was on there. Most of my films are on flixster, could that be the reason why?

It took 22 hours for my 103 titles to show up.

Fantastic, been wanting this to happen for a long time. It was so frustrating Flixter was not available on UK Samsung TVs.

Blinkbox has to support the films too if I read it right. I'm in the same position I have about 20 TV series and about 150 films but its either 66 or 88 films showing (I forget how many) and only 2 TV shows I have no doubt in time they will support more but it just seems strange the like of Game of Thrones isn't showing I would think they would support that.

At least you get to see some of your library, I can't get a single film to show on mine still

I have over 750 films and 42 TV series on my UV Cloud and only 245 movies and 15 tv shows are showing! Would rather stick to flixster

Does that mean you bought 750 blurays/dvd?
