Premium Content Services offer digital access to movies, documentaries, television shows, promotional videos and other video content ("Premium Content"). Rights to Premium Content may only be purchased or redeemed in New Zealand and require a Flixster Video Account.
All Premium Content is subject to certain terms and conditions, including the following:
(1) Usage Rules.
Your use of all Premium Content is subject to the applicable Usage Rules. The Usage Rules provide information regarding your permitted use of Premium Content, including the time period during which you are authorized to view different types of Premium Content and limitations on the number and type of Authorized Devices (defined below) on which each type of Premium Content may be downloaded, streamed, and/or viewed. Premium Content may contain or use technology that protects digital information from access and enforces the Usage Rules.
(2) Availability of Downloaded or Streamed Premium Content.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, we are not responsible for replacing the Premium Content that is downloaded (beyond what is provided in the Usage Rules) if you are unable to view it or if you lose the Premium Content, including if the Premium Content becomes damaged or corrupt, your Authorized Device crashes, your hard drive fails or the Premium Content does not play for any other reason. In addition, Premium Content will generally continue to be available to you for download or streaming from the Services, but may become unavailable due to potential content provider licensing restrictions and for other reasons, and we will not be liable to you if Premium Content becomes unavailable for further download or streaming. You may download and store your own copy of Premium Content on an Authorized Device so that you can view that content if it becomes unavailable for further download or streaming from the Services.
(3) Accessing the Services and Authorized Devices.
Use of the Services and Premium Content may require the use of other hardware and software products, which are your responsibility. In addition, you are responsible for all charges associated with connecting to the Services, including without limitation all Internet access fees and computer equipment and any service fees or your bandwidth costs, above and beyond any charges you may have incurred when acquiring rights to Premium Content.
In order to access such Premium Content, you must use an Authorized Device. As used herein, an "Authorized Device" means personal computer (Windows or Mac operating systems) or an Android or Apple iOS mobile or tablet device running the Flixster Video mobile app and meeting minimum system requirements that we may establish in our sole discretion from time to time, or any other device that we may authorize in our sole discretion from time to time. Click here for more information on Authorized Devices. In the event we make such Premium Content available via mobile or tablet applications, or through applications on game consoles, televisions, set-top boxes or other devices, such Premium Content shall be governed by the agreements, policies and rules established by the provider or entity controlling the application marketplace or relevant operating system or device. The support or availability of the Services or the Premium Content through such devices may be limited by those entities at any time.
(4) Future Changes Regarding Premium Content.
We reserve the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue access to Premium Content at any time without notice to you where reasonably necessary to preserve the security of the Services and/or Content or to perform maintenance activities in respect of the Services and/or Content, and we will not be liable to you should we exercise such rights.
The Services in respect of Premium Content are intended to develop, evolve and progress with time. This is a dynamic and innovative service, and we will look to implement improvements in future. For this reason, it may be that from time to time we need to make changes to the Services in respect of Premium Content.
Where such changes do not affect your ability to access and enjoy the Premium Content you have already acquired, or are required by a court or regulator of competent authority or changes to applicable law, we may make such changes at our sole discretion.
Where such changes will affect your ability to access and enjoy the Premium Content you have already acquired, and are not required by a court or regulator of competent authority or changes to applicable law, we will ensure that they are fair and reasonable, with reference to (a) your rights as a consumer; and (b) the nature of a service model in which either no payment at all, or a single initial payment, is made in exchange for the ongoing provision of a service.
Regardless of current intentions, it is not possible for any organization or entity to guarantee that it will be able to continue to provide a service on a perpetual basis either for free or in exchange for a single, up-front fee.
In particular, in certain circumstances: (i) you may not be able to access, view, or use the Premium Content in the same manner as previously; (ii) we may institute a charge for continued access to Premium Content via streaming or downloading; and (iii) we may cease entirely the provision of streaming or downloading access to Premium Content and/or terminate the availability of the Premium Content. You agree that we shall have no liability to you in such circumstances, provided that: (a) we shall continue to provide the Premium Content in materially the same form, and without instituting a charge for access to Premium Content via streaming or downloading, for a minimum period of three (3) years from the date on which you redeem or purchase or otherwise acquire rights to the relevant item of Premium Content; and (b) we will always give you reasonable notice where the availability of Premium Content is to be materially altered in such a manner as to affect your ability to access previously acquired Premium Content via streaming or downloading at no charge, so as to give you an opportunity to download a permanent copy of the relevant Premium Content for future use.
We will not alter the Services in such a manner that would prevent you from being able to access the Premium Content you have already downloaded for no additional charge.
It is, of course, our hope that we will be able to avoid making changes which will materially affect your enjoyment of the Premium Content, or the cost to you of accessing the Premium Content you have acquired. Where we make changes of this type, we will do so in a fair and reasonable manner, and will provide a proper explanation as to why the changes are being made.
(5) Reservation of Rights.
Except for the rights explicitly granted to you in these Terms of Service, all right, title and interest in the Services and Premium Content are reserved and retained by us and our licensors, and no right, title or interest in the Services or the Premium Content is transferred to you. While you will be the owner of digital files that you download containing the Premium Content, you do not acquire any ownership rights in the Content as a result of utilizing the Services.
B. Types of Premium Content.
Any one or more of the following types of Premium Content may be available via the Premium Content Service:

From time to time we may offer movies, documentaries, television shows, promotional videos and other video content on a promotional basis without charge to you ("Promotional Content"). Such offers will generally be subject to terms and conditions that will be described at the time the offer is made, and your use of the Promotional Content will generally be subject to Usage Rules[link to Territory-specific Usage Rules], the terms applicable to all Premium Content, and any additional terms, conditions and restrictions that will be described at the time you redeem the offer.
(iii) Non-Flixster UltraViolet Content.
We may permit you to stream or download movies, television shows or other content that you have purchased or otherwise acquired from an UltraViolet service other than Flixster Video (the “Non-Flixster Ultra-Violet Content”), and the rights to which have been placed in your UltraViolet locker.

If we do provide access to such Non-Flixster UltraViolet Content from our Services, your use of such content shall be governed by and subject to these Terms of Service.
