If someone here was able to watch movies bought at the Cineplex Store through the CinemaNow app, let me know. On my side none of the movies I bought shows up there. Same think with Ultraviolet. I cannot get the Cineplex movies to show up anywhere else than the ancient Roxio player or directly through their website.
I was able to stream Ultraviolet movies through the PS3 CinemaNow app by linking my Ultraviolet account to my CinemaNow account on the CinemaNow website. I assume I will also be able to stream through the CinemaNow app on other devices.

I bought World War Z digital... and turned out it's not Ultraviolet. Stuck watching it on a 13in laptop... couldn't stream to PS3, must be protected or locked.

On another note, it's suck that I paid extra for digital in HD (should be 4GB) but Cineplex gives it in SD format (1.4GB) Tried phoning and waited over an hour with no success. They don't care now that they have the monopoly in this business.
Same thing happened for me and they ended up giving me a code to get any other digital copy on their site (was on hold for half an hour or so on the phone though).
I sended up getting the HD Elysium w/ UV just for the points. ;)

27" iMac. The resolution is actually too high. But agreed that I haven't tried it on my 42" 720p TV because that would require finding a way to watch these stupid movies on something else than a computer. Gggrrr...
I got 27" monitor also and a good dvdrip/720p movies/shows are fine to watch there. But i watch most of my movies on my 70" screen and sometimes even 1080p looks just meh. :lol:

Ahh...I was going to go for Round 2 as I finally decided to get a few more blu-rays to my collection. Darn, missed it. Will love to know if this sale will come back again soon! :(

Same here. I ordered 2 backordered television series + free Cineplex pass on Black Friday and started to worry that it wouldn't arrive for Christmas. Finally, the Cineplex pass arrived solo on December 18th. The first TV DVD set arrived on December 20th. The second TV DVD set arrived on December 23rd.

Did you check your orders on the site? Mine is pretty accurate. 'Backorder' does not necessarily mean it's out of stock... Seems to be a placeholder.

Example: Ordered on 12-21. "Shipped" email received 12-24. Item arrived 12-30. Better than BB/FS with their $5/$10 off sale.

I put in 10 orders right before boxing day. Nothing has shipped yet even though they've already taken the payments out of my account for over half of them. Even the ones that say payment settled in my account haven't shipped or the passes.
