KnowHow Movies is re-launching as CinemaNow, which means access to an even greater digital entertainment experience with all your favorite films and TV shows.

Don't worry, there's nothing you need to do. Your account has been seamlessly migrated to our new website,, with your library safely in tow.

On, sign in using your KnowHow Movies username/password and take some time to look around.  View your account info in My CinemaNow>Account and your library in My CinemaNow>Library. 


What is UltraViolet?

UltraViolet ( is a free, cloud-based digital rights library that gives you flexibility to watch your UltraViolet enabled movies and TV shows on multiple platforms.  UltraViolet allows you to create a library that you can access through multiple UltraViolet-enabled devices or retailer web-stores.  For example, if you have an UltraViolet account with CinemaNow and its also linked with another streaming movie provider, all your UltraViolet enabled movies will be accessible in both places. 

Many of our titles are UltraViolet enabled, and require an UltraViolet account for checkout.  If you havent done so already, create an UltraViolet account!

-go to My CinemaNow>Account

-scroll down to the UltraViolet section

-select "Create an UltraViolet Account"

-enter the required account info to complete the process
