I think it was too late? They all had to be moved to Vudu/Movies Anywhere by July 31 I thought?

Correct. For UK they were supposed to have been moved from Flixster to Google Play by end July.

However this won’t be all titles and some will be “lost” in UK.

Had email late July to say this has been delayed but no more since.

They better hurry up as Flixster dies end October or November.

Ah, so UK did get some extra time. I didn't really have much there so just didn't even bother.

Well I’ve received my email....it’s time, lots of issues though of course.

#1 if you’ve already got it you’ll get it again amongst originals

#2 you can’t sort the Google list to see what you have already

#3 YOU HAVE TO MIGRATE EACH INDIVIDUALLY!! Fine if you’ve got 10-20, not so fun if you have over 250!!! At least the series seem to be by season and not by episode but I’ve not got that far yet.

#4 not every thing is going but at least some of the excuses are bull as I’ve already got several of the “Unavailable of GooglePlay” on GooglePlay

Anyway the migration begins.....

And two hours 40 mins later I’m just about finished!

Still got all the Breaking Bad seasons to do as well as the Jurassic Park trilogy as bits are missing and I’m not migrating them till I’ve emailed them about it

Ultraviolet - frustratingly complicated

Well everything else that was available has now been migrated.

If I forget what ISN’T available but was caught by VUDU, I’ve only got 4 titles left, Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift (all the other 7 worked) which is on GooglePlay and Trance and two live comedies which are not.

And Breaking Bad seasons 4 & 5 which weren’t up for migration, I’ve left a comment on their Messageboard

I'm a bit confused as to why all but 3 episodes of Breaking Bad (from season 5) weren't available to migrate. Season 4 was available for me.

Did you have a “The Complete series” boxset or individual seasons? I had the latter.

Same here, the complete set (all seasons), and 1 episode from S4 (Bug), and 3 form S5 (buyout, Hazard pay, Say my name) aren't available to migrate yet.

Neither are the 3 older Mad Max films from the Anthology set.

I suspect it'll be a case of the server having issues or similar and will probably correct in a day or so.

To be honest I'm just glad it's working for me at all, for about a year I couldn't access it and their CS was useless.
After they split from the rental side my flixter UV account was screwed, every time I tried to log in my password wouldn't work so I'd do a reset, then for about 9 months it would accept the request for a reset, send a link, but when I clocked the link it would tell me the email address wasn't valid and there was no account (back when they announced they were closing was the first time I was able to access it at all, using a password that didn't work the last time I'd tried ).

I only got my email this morning, but I've been doing it for the last 2 nights, so I've gone as far as I can. It's been so patchy in Flixster recently, as others have said, just happy most stuff has gone over.

Out of about 200, 15 show as unavailable in Google Play, though they're all available to buy in Google Play (inc. Trance and Mad Max 1-3, I had the 3 film set, rather than the anthology)

I'm still missing a title in Flixster, which was there years ago, so I can't migrate that (Treasure of the Sierra Madre). Some others that went AWOL earlier in the year are now back though

And I've had one title which should have migrated, but there was an error code (San Andreas)

Some series, you have to migrate each episode, but they show up as 1 series in Google Play, i.e. Gotham/Person of Interest

You can sort the Google list on phones/devices, in order of "Date added", if that helps

Bizarrely, I've gone back and tried some codes that didn't work for me before and Sicario now worked

I got Justified Bluray Complete. It did seasons 1 to 5 season at a time. Then 6 episode at a time. All except the last episode. When I looked at my Flixster collection, it shows I own it but it's not watchable on Flixster. They have the entirety of Justified - except the last episode??

ouch, I just worked out how many hours that would likely take (it's not terrible as you can do it a few at a time, but it's certainly not great).

Time for an audio book/podcast/brainless TV comedy and a lot of clicking
It's how I tend to get through the tedious bit of cleaning up the parts for my models (although that's not so much clicking as clipping and mopping up the blood).

Ultraviolet - frustratingly complicated

Bit annoyed with Sony as I added Close Encounters a few weeks back and it’s only in Sony’s own launcher and not Flixster with no way to migrate anywhere.

Also went through the full Flixster list to see what else might be missing. From what I can see and not including the 12 in the non migratible which I got over via MA/VUDU, I have the following still to get:

Bill Bailey Qualmpeddler (I’ll never get this)
Eddie Izzard Force Majeure (or this)
Breaking Bad season 4 and 5 (missing from migration)
Community season 1 and 2 (same)
Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift (not available on GooglePlay BUT IS)
Trance (same)

Also Jurassic Park 2 and 3 are missing from migration but I have them thanks to MA

Anyone else notice they locked the help page post and deleted all the reply’s?
