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

According to ZuNim on MeWe, Vudu is increasing their bitrate on recent 4K UHD movies.

New in 4K - Vudu

Wall Street (1987)
Uncut Gems (2019)

Vudu has also upped their bitrate!

23Mbps for the new ones. Checking the rest.

So far only Uncut Gems and Wall Street have the higher bitrate. Everything else is still 15Mbps. Hopefully they'll upgrade the rest as time goes by, certainly I'd hope all new 4K would be 23Mbps.

Actually these are also 23Mbps:

Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Frozen II (2019)
The Jungle Book (2016)
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019)
Queen & Slim (2019)

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

I had purchased Kong: Skull Island a while back, and when I made the purchase it was just the 2D version. But I noticed a couple of days ago that it shows me now having both the 2D and 3D versions. Now I just need to figure out a way to watch the 3D version on my Oculus Go. Unfortunately, they don't have a VUDU app for the Go.

VUDU currently has Community: The Complete Series Disc + Digital HDX for $36.87. Amazon had the disc-only set for the same price.

I’ve never bought a physical/digital bundle at Vudu, and it doesn’t appear to confirm BD vs DVD on the purchase page.

Click the Disc + Digital button. Blu ray set. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen Vudu sell a disc+digital bundle where the discs are DVD.

^ Thanks E. I missed that and the next screen is more nebulous with DVD and BD phrasing. Have the first four or five seasons on DVD, but I’ll in again.

Yeah, I bought the first 3 seasons when they were only available on DVD. Mill Creek then came in and released the whole series on blu. I'll probably buy in again since this is a pretty good price and we get the digital to go with it.

Large “indie” sale with a ton of random catalog. Some people may find nothing, but there are a couple titles I haven’t thought about in years that might be worth $4.99 to me.

I’m the opposite in that it seems like a good price for digital and the discs would be a bonus.

I was just about to post about the sale. There are bunch of good movies there. I'm definitely going to use the Vudu credits I have lying around and upgrade my DVD of Flirting With Disaster. (That's a very funny movie.)

They're all Miramax movies- I had to laugh at the timing of that with Harvey Weinstein's sentencing.

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

Studio Ghibli movies just dropped to $16.99

I don't know if this is a sale or a permanent price drop.

Lots of good titles in that sale. I have a $2 credit and I'm trying to decide between:
Rounders
Swingers
The Station Agent
Sling Blade
She's All That
Outside Providence

Man if that were the case, I’d spend a fortune, even if I were CERTAIN that all the proceeds would go to the Harvey Weinstein Defense Fund.

Today only: Stream a Last Chance Free title for a $2 credit.

@Oldboy: This has to be a Last Chance Free title only.

Wouldn’t we all! But no way they’d dump those Tarantino movies for that price.

You talked me into it. I ended up getting The Station Agent.

I should get another credit tomorrow for watching a last chance to watch title. You only get one $2 credit right? You can't get multiple credits for watching more than one movie? I don't get VUDU emails so I can't see the fine print.

Yeah, only one credit per account. The other trick is you can’t watch a title that you already own. That tripped me up once,

Thanks! I'm watching Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. I've actually never seen it before.

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

Just got my $2 credit email, Spent it on 3 seasons of Legion for $17.99. Nice deal!

Thinking about picking up You're The Worst S1-5 Bundle for $19.99 even though I already own 2 seasons.
