    HDX to UHD Upgrade Option

    There should be a way to upgrade HDX titles in one's VUDU library to UHD for a nominal fee. If there were an option to upgrade for say $5 per title, I'd upgrade many of the HDX titles in my library. But having to purchase the UHD version of the movie at full price when I already own it in HDX isn't going to happen. Seems like an upgrade option would be a win/win for the consumer and for VUDU/Fandango, and easy enough to implement.

    They have sales every Tuesday and Weekends also Mix & Match deals. Keep an eye on these and if any of your favorite titles are a part of these sales, don't hesitate to pull the trigger. Good luck!!!

      I think it was WB that did some free upgrades on selected titles sometime ago for free. That was nice of the studio.

        I agree 100% that allowing an HDX to UHD upgrade would bring in a ton of money to VUDU. I have 500 HDX titles purchased before UHD came out, and at $5 each that would bring $2500 to the company. But charging more than that means I wait till I can get the 4k UHD hard copy with digital code on sale from $10 to $15 before I upgrade. I have got the time to wait since I already have access to the movie.

          I could be wrong, but I think they only did that for titles that were purchased directly through VUDU.

              I got coupons for all the seasons. But oddly different ones went to different emails.

              I used to have multiple accounts; but still get emails to each of the old accounts.

                Yeah, we saw a couple of those upgrades; but one downside of those, similar to post-purchase/-redemption upgrades over on iTunes, the UHD upgrade doesn't port through to Movies Anywhere.

                As for the original thread topic, the recent Godfather I, II & Coda $3* UHD upgrade offers were a great example. I bit on all three, and got my brother to do the same on his account. (Even $5 is more than I'd like to pay for an upgrade from HDX; if the title is available in UHD for $5 via a sale, an additional discount for "UPGRADE" vs a new purchase would be nice.)

                ---
                * edit: p.s. Only $2.40 each, when purchased using a gift card bought at a 20% discount. (So, love the discounted gift cards, as well.)

                  I agree, not only should there be an upgrade option for HDX (which should be called FHD) to UHD but there should also be an upgrade option for SD to HDX as well. Buying the entire title all over again when you already own it is not going to happen. As one person suggested wait for a 'sale' to buy the entire title all over again when you already have it is not a solution either. Not offering upgrades to titles you already own to higher qualities when they become available is a terrible decision. It would make the company more money while also giving the customer what they want, a win-win

                    Buying the same title all over again is not going to happen.

                    How many times did I buy the same title on laserdisc to DVD to Blu-Ray.

                    how many times did I buy the same title on cassette.

                    What about my parents that bought real to real, 8 track, vinyl, cassette and CD.

                    Just because it’s not a physical media the rules are different.

                    There is time, effort, and money creating remasters, special versions, extended versions, and high quality formats.

                    How often were we offered the ability to trade in our DVD’s for Blu-Ray’s. Sure you can sell the actual disc for cash toward the next format. But usually not for much and the price difference between what you got for it used and what it costs to buy the newer format is between wise. Ignoring new releases buying the titles over again on digital isn’t much different than taking your stack of DVD’s to the own shop and then buying all the titles on Blu-Ray at say Target. Actually digital is often cheaper.

                      Yes, digital is different. Upgrading a VHS tape to a DVD or a DVD to a blu ray you actually have to get a new disc! Comparing that to digital is laughable. You already own it digitally, all you want is an upgrade in quality. Since you already bought it at a lower quality you should be able to upgrade by paying the difference. You shouldn't have to repay the entire price. Your comparison is weak and you are defending a bad policy. Offering upgrades will make more money for the company since it will entice those who already own to give them more money for an upgrade and it also is better for the customer to get that upgrade.

                        Agree to disagree.

                        There’s time, effort and money involved in making the new UHD (example) stream and the costs in storing both now instead of just one. There’s little to no profit in it for the studios or Vudu to offer $3 (example) upgrades. From a profit percentage perspective it’s going to make the financials look worse. From a total dollar perspective the extra income from low dollar upgrades is minimal, even scaled up.

                        I love discounts and freebies as much as the next person. I’ve got hundreds and hundreds of D2D conversions and upgrades.

                        But as someone who’s spent decades working with or in management for various consumer electronics hardware and software manufacturers, distributors, and dealers, installers, and retails I’ve seen what drives these companies and upgrades, trades and the like are usually the last thing on they’re list. Often done when they have no other options for achieving they’re goals.
