Flixster Closing Down

If you are a Flixster subscriber, you better start saving your movies. The Fandango-owned video service contacted their customers yesterday to let them know that as of February 20, 2018, the service will cease operations.

While the site will be up and running until then, you are now no longer able to redeem digital codes for Flixster.

Yesterday, the movie service sent the following message to its customers:

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.

As mentioned above, if you have an UltraViolet library, you will be able to move your catalog to MoviesAnywhere. Be sure not to put this off forever because after the 20th of February, your movie purchases will be gone.
