- 20th Century Fox and Anchor Bay Entertainment plan to have digital content made available via the UltraViolet DRM platform support Dolby Digital Plus (DLB +3.8%) audio. (PR)
- UltraViolet, which allows purchased movies/TV shows ti be downloaded and streamed onto multiple devices, has seen a mixed reception: Disney, Apple, and certain other firms have withheld their support, and users have complained about DRM restrictions and confusing download procedures.
- But with most major studios supporting UltraViolet and offering digital copies with Blu-ray/DVD purchases, the platform could still generate healthy licensing sales for Dolby. Shares are making new 52-week highs, and are up 29% YTD.
