That's great that you have so much content, now will you ever not buy anything for a month or two and just watch what you have?

I was talking about the average person's usage of Vudu, not the DVD Talk, Blu-Ray.com message boarder who is familiar with buying and selling UV codes.

I'm very familiar with that. If I purchase a disc of a movie I like with a UV code, chances are I will sell it to offset some of the disc cost. I have no need for a duplicate digital copy.

The amount of Vudu/UV content that I actually have is very small. Occasionally I will use it to rent or buy a title on sale. If I can't sell a UV code that comes with a disc, then usually I'll just redeem it on Vudu just to have it.
I'll be 247 before I watch it all.

But I actually have slowed way down in purchasing, sometimes only buying a couple titles a month. And sometimes I watch over 300 a month!

Yeah, I'm an exception in some ways, but I can easily see people relying on Vudu for everything. They have great sales every week. I can see Joe Consumer deciding to just buy stuff they want to own or rent digitally versus paying for rental services where stuff you want is streaming one month and gone the next.

I don't pay for any streaming services currently. And it's hard to see that changing in the near future. I have so much to watch--whether it be a healthy amount of digital owned content or a mountain of physical media. I don't need anymore choices.

Netflix and Hulu.
I am on an Amazon Household account but don't pay for it.
I don't have pay cable or satellite.

Add in hundreds of DVD/BDs and dozens of video games including disk, Games with Gold, Steam deals and Xbox deals....way too much content, much of which is good.

I've only bought two disks this year - Dredd for three bucks and Death of Superman GN/disc (I'm on a GN kick).

Pretty close to overwhelming.
