UltraViolet: Hollywood's giant digital gamble is here

Hollywood's big plan to update the industry for the digital era - UltraViolet - comes to the UK on 26 December, the consortium behind it has revealed. It will be an inauspicious start, represented by just one new movie release, but there's no mistaking the ambition of the project. Three years in the planning, UV is Hollywood's attempt to get right what the music business has got woefully wrong, and it isn't unreasonable to describe it as the biggest shift in thinking in the history of the movie industry.
