Sony Pictures participates with UltraViolet services in Canada through CinemaNow, Flixster and the Sony Pictures Store. UltraViolet movies and TV shows can be added to the library by buying them directly from those distributors or buying discs with the UltraViolet logo and redeeming the code.
UltraViolet is a cloud-based service that offers movies and TV shows that can be streamed on various devices. Choosing a distributor for UltraViolet depends on what devices support the distributors' services, like an app that is only available on certain devices. Although UltraViolet has many distributors in Canada, the only ones that carry Sony Pictures are CinemaNow, Flixster and the Sony Pictures Store.
