No. Right now, it is pretty much all streaming. I am waiting to see if Kaleidescape can successfully negotiate deals with the last two UV studios and with Disney. If they do, I will probably buy into their Alto product line, which provides full Blu-Ray quality downloads.

Yes and No. Click here for a PDF on downloading and playing VUDU (and some UV) movies.

Just beware: you will need a VUDU app installed on your computer, AFAIK it is the only way to playback the download. The playback quality sucks. Takes much longer to download than to stream . Places the download on the C drive, does not give you an option to place somewhere else . All in all, a big fail.

UV has been promising CFF with complete interoperability for years yet I do not know of a single piece of hardware or software that supports it. Another big fail.

How about including different 4K streams (Netflix/Amazon/Vudu) to compare with Blu-Ray?

I also wonder about the quality of UltraViolet (1080).
