by Michael Inouye | 1Q 2019 | IN-5419

UltraViolet (UVVU) was announced in 2010, launched in late 2011, and will cease operations on July 31, 2019. ABI Research covered UVVU in its earlier days, but expressed a healthy level of skepticism throughout most of that coverage. First impressions were not positive, and even with some things going UVVU’s way (e.g. Tesco joining UVVU) the platform couldn’t overcome the fragmentations and--perhaps most critically--the lack of support from Disneyand other key video services like iTunes, Amazon Video, and Google Play.
