Over 750,000 households have registered with UltraViolet to create digital lockers for their content, according to the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the consortium behind the standard.

UltraViolet-enabled DVDs and Blu-rays are currently on sale in the US and UK. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Universal Studios Home Entertainment and Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group plan to release hundreds of additional UltraViolet-enabled titles in 2012. UltraViolet-enabled titles planned for the UK in 2012 includes Crazy Stupid Love, Midnight in Paris and Dolphin Tale.

Warner Bros-backed US service Flixster and Sony and Universal’s dedicated UltraViolet websites currently provide access to movies to view on Android and iOS devices and PCs and Macs. Samsung has also announced that its Smart Blu-ray players will stream movies and TV shows stored in the cloud through a new Flixster application coming this year.
