Disney doing us all a solid
Big News on the iTunes Digital Copy HD front.
Disney has a new program called DisneyMoviesAnywhere. Basically, any Disney DC movies that you have can be watched anywhere using an app. It'll stream right to your device. All you have to do is link your DisneyMovieRewards account to the new DisneyMoviesAnywhere account.
In addition, if you link your DisneyMoviesAnywhere account to your iTunes account, your Disney DC movies will be upgraded to HD, with iTunes Extras.
I did this and my Princess and the Frog digital copy got upgraded to HD. They also give you an HD copy of The Incredibles for signing up.
I'm gonna go out and get Wreck It Ralph 3D since the DC will now be HD.

I got the BD/DVD/Digital Copy bundle of Game of Thrones, Season 3 from Amazon. The listing said the digital copy was for Ultraviolet only, but I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the packaging and saw that the code could also be used for iTunes. Saved me a lot of ripping time.

Not only did Disney Movies Anywhere upgrade my old digital copies to HD, I gained Robin Hood after linking, which I didn't have before. An iTunes digital copy of Robin Hood was previously not available (back in August) just Vudu and Amazon.
I suppose they knew I purchased Robin Hood because of my DMR (Disney Movie Rewards) account. I've also been enjoying streaming all the movie extras to my Apple TV from the Movies Anywhere app.

Problems with Thor 2 - DMA and Vudu
I was having a problem with Thor 2 and the iTunes DC. The problem has since worked itself out, but I figure I'd post my experience anyway so that others might be helped out.
I purchased the 3D/Blu/DC combo pack for Thor 2. I logged into MoreMarvel.com as directed by the Digital Copy Insert. Typed in the code and was whisked away to the Digital Copy Plus website.
From there, I was presented with two options.
1. DisneyMoviesAnywhere + iTunes
2. iTunes, Vudu, Amazon, or GooglePlay
As I'm an iTunes guy, I chose the first option. It took me to DMA where I typed in the code again. I confirmed that Thor 2 showed up on my DMA list.
Then I headed over to iTunes (Mac) to see if it showed up, which it did. It showed up in my "Purchased" section of the iTunes store. It also showed up in my iTunes Library, as long as I have "show iTunes in the Cloud purchases" clicked on in the Preferences.
Next, I went back to DigtalCopyPlus to see if I could still redeem the code for Vudu. YES! The code worked for Vudu and I logged in and could see it in MyVudu.
So with one code, I had redeemed Thor 2 with 3 services. Awesome. Or so I thought.
For whatever reason, Thor 2 was not showing up in my iPhone. All of my other movies showed up, but not Thor 2. I could go to the iTunes Store on my iPhone and download it, but who's got that kind of space. I typically stream from iTunes in the Cloud when I'm on the iPhone.
I thought, perhaps, that DMA/iTunes doesn't give you streaming on iOS, but my appleTV could stream it. And that when redeemed it for Vudu, I lost my ability to redeem it for iTunes directly.
Well, eventually after a couple of days, it finally showed up on my iPhone for streaming. But it wasn't until after I redeemed Catching Fire. I think maybe the server or phone needed a "jolt" or something.
So in summary, it seems as though going through DMA, gives you full iTunes DC rights. That leaves the other redemption open for Vudu, Amazon, or GooglePlay.
Hope this helps others that may be having problems with Thor 2 not showing up on their ipHone.

This is a follow up to the post above regarding DisneyMoviesAnywhere + iTunes.
Just got Frozen yesterday. Went to the redemption site listed on the insert in the box. Eventually, I got to the DigtialCopyPlus site that allows for the following options:
1. DMA + iTunes
2. iTunes, Vudu, Google, Amazon, or Target
As I did with Thor 2, I chose option 1 and was able to verify that Frozen showed up on DMA as well as iTunes on my Mac.
However, on my iPhone, Frozen is not available for streaming (via the Video app). The only way to watch Frozen on my iPhone is to download it from the store, or stream it from my Mac. I can't stream from iCloud as I can with my other Digital Copies.
I'm gonna wait a few more days to see if it "magically" shows up. In the meantime, I haven't redeemed the code for Option 2 yet.
I figured it out. I needed to log out of my AppleID on my iphone and then log back in.
To do this, go to Settings > iTunes & App Store and click on your AppleID, then you'll be able to log out.
