There has been a change to our digital copy service in Canada. Starting with all titles released on August 7th, 2018, your digital redemption option will now be Google Play instead of Flixster.
You can access your Google Play movies through the Google Play website, the Google Play Movies & TV app on your Android and iOS devices, and the Google Play app on some smart TVs. An active Google Play account is required for redemption. Google Play does not support UltraViolet (UV) codes.
