I hate the app on my Android TV. I use the Xbox app so I don’t have to click on stuff to see the price or whether I already own it.

Watched Horror of Dracula which seems to be sourced from a very old master, where it’s follow-up, Brides of Dracula is a beautiful technicolor transfer.

I hate it when they don't have the price in the icon, and some aren't even on sale (yet).

I just got an email from Vudu that 24 movies in my library have been upgraded to UHD. Some went from SD to UHD. Cool!

I am curious as to how VUDU arrives at its valuations.
6 seasons of The Flintstones on sale for 39.99 regularly 496 dollars 🤪😵‍💫

Those are all Sony except the two Denzel films, as far as I know. What's weird is that films that other here have had Upgraded I own and they're not Upgraded for me (Lego Movie 2, Zombieland, Paddington 2). I wonder what's going on with this? If it's not everyone who owns the film in HDX, maybe it's a slow roll out? Maybe they capped it at 24?

I haven't gotten an email yet... either a slow roll out or nothing in my library to qualify (that I hadn't already upgraded).

I got my little 'We miss you!" email from VUDU with a $3 credit. Used it to get the Star Trek Animated Series from the Early Black Friday Sale for $10.99
I'm questioning ALL of my life choices now ...

Also, the only upgraded title in my library was Wonder Woman.

Watching it right now! When I saw it was on sale I thought "I'll probably bite at $19.99"

Worked out much better than that!

NCIS: Los Angeles is $35 for all 14 seasons. Series ended in May 2023.

https://www.vudu.com/content/browse/...undle-/2384651

That's an excellent deal. At $20 per season on average normally, you're saving a ton.

I missed most of the final season because Paramount + does not have the rights to the entire series and pulls it after the season wraps. So I went ahead and got it.

I know most here don't care for CBS cop shows, but if you are a fan of the series or have only seen it occasionally, I would jump at this.

Very interesting change here. I often check VUDU when it comes to these Fanflix sales to see if I already had a movie in my collection or not.
Every time I have checked and I do it says "You own HDX" or "You own 4K UHD".
Today I checked about Babylon and it said this instead :


So the choice of words is curious. I have that movie, but I don't own a copy any more?

I am aware. It's just curious that they've changed the wording on their site now. Maybe on advice of attorneys, or following a recent lawsuit?
