    How Long Between Broadcast and VuDu Availability?

    The newest episode of Beware the Batman was broadcast on Saturday. Here it is Tuesday afternoon and it's not on VuDu yet (Amazon however, does have it available). I'd thought VuDu would be next day like Amazon.

    So how long after a program's been aired does it normally take to show up on VuDu?

    Thanks!

    Of course.

    Added the day after I watched it elsewhere.

    Story of my life...

      To answer your question, it is dependent on the agreement between Vudu and the studio/content provider.

      IMO, Amazon and iTunes seem to have the most shows with "day after" episode availability, the most shows with season passes, the best deals on full seasons, and a much larger overall selection of TV content in general (number of shows and number of seasons for those shows).

        Re: How Long Between Broadcast and VuDu Availability?

        Last night's Breaking Bad Premiere is already available on Amazon, iTunes and the PlayStation Store - but not on Vudu. This is so frustrating and disappointing. I bought into the hype of 1080p at Vudu, lesson learned.

        If there was a way to get my Season Pass money back I would do it. Fool me once...

          Same applies for Breaking Bad Season 6 Episode 1. VuDu says it's available Aug 12th. Haven't seen anything yet.

              Thanks for the reply FelipeF. It is very nice to know that Vudu follows the forum posts. That's a positive sign indeed.

                    It's been up for quite some time now. You might need to reboot your streaming device to flush the cache and get the latest listings from Vudu.

                      Re: How Long Between Broadcast and VuDu Availability?

                      The gap seems to vary week to week. When I first started this thread, it was four days between a "Beware the Batman" episode's broadcast and it appearance on Vudu. Last week's episode appeared here after only two days. Now this week's episode was three days ago and no sign of it here yet.

                      Edit: Never mind. Just checked epguides.com and apparently there wasn't an episode this last Saturday. Hopefully there will be an episode this coming Saturday and we can continue this discussion....

                        Why isn't this week's episode of Dallas available yet? Season 3 Episode 11. The last two episodes were available the next evening (Tuesday). I've checked several times tonight, and last night's episode still isn't available. Vudu didn't discontinue this show, did they? When will it be available?

                            Both episodes will be available on the service later today. Sorry for delay.

                              The latest two episodes of Survivor Season 29 aired on Oct. 8th & 15th. Neither of these have been uploaded to your service as of this writing.
