The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

Anybody here using Vudu?

I love their service. I've built up a collection of about 230 titles through Ultraviolet codes and Disc-to-Digital conversion. The HDX quality is great. And it's so convenient with apps on my Roku, PS3, Xbox 360 and iPad.

I also love that I can share my movie collection with family. Just add them to your UV account. Then when they sign up at Vudu, all the movies are there. I don't have to loan out discs any more.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

Vudu has a daily $0.99 rental deal (SD/HD/HDX). They often put up recent releases. The rental period is 48 hours, and you have 30 days to start watching.

Today's $0.99 Rental is End Of Watch (2012).

Good idea for a thread. I think Vudu is my favorite streaming site quality-wise right now. Works seamlessly with my Roku.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

Great idea for a thread Dave. I don't watch any shows on Vudu but I have over 90 movies on my account. And always looking to add more.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

I forget, do I need to 'buy' all three versions of the content to verify I can play it on all my devices; or does buying it in HD or HDX also give you the SD version? I can't quite tell from the crappy mobile version process right now.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

If you get HDX, you can switch it to HD or SD. My internet service can't handle HDX without dropping out constantly, but I get all my free content with HDX so I can play it that way if I ever get my service upgraded later. From what I've seen of HDX quality, it STILL has noticeable compression- still good for what it is, but it's no Blu-Ray replacement.

I've seen the comparison threads over at AVS Forum. And if you're looking at blown-up screencaps, you can notice the compression. But with normal viewing on a 60-inch plasma, I don't know if I could tell the difference. I've been really impressed with HDX.
