    High Price of 3D

    When I first got Vudu, the 3D movies were 22.99, a decent price. Now they are 35 bucks, the same price you get a 3D Blu Ray movie for at Walmart. At Walmart though, you get 3D Blu Ray, 2D Blu Ray, DVD (sometimes) and sometimes as many as 2 digital copies....all for 35 bucks. My point is....It is not fair to pay 35 bucks for only the 3D copy. We should get 2D and 3D digital copies. I love the service, but I would like a fair deal with the 3D movies.

    I feel if they are charging $34.99 we should get all 3 versions. They are charging the 3d movies out of the market.

      completely agree, and the streaming 3d is 720p x 2 streams instead of 1080p, so actually disk looks much better...

        The price is typically dictated by studio agreements. We're happy to pass your feedback along to the proper people.

          The price is higher than what I pay for all three formats I usually pay between $22.99 - $35.99. I would to buy more movies on 3d but not for $35.00

            I am of the same opinion. When DVD was new I would on occasion buy a DVD for thirty dollars but I can only think of one I paid more than that for. Sullivan's Travels. I paid 40 because I won 50 dollars for best new product review on Amazon.

            Now most of us don't like to pay 15 dollars for a single DVD. But I could see a 22.00 price point for a digital 3D copy where I don't get the box and have to trust Vudu will be around til Blu Rays become passe'.

            3D is about the only item I am willing to pay Vudu's rental prices for unless its a great movie I haven't seen. Vudu's 1080 looks fantastic. I just wish it wasn't more than 4 dollars.

            Im a Vudu newbie. I think Vudu is great, just a little spendy for me.

              I would buy 3D if 2D HDX came with it. I pass on so many 3D movies because I mostly watch 2D but as I said I would pay that little extra for 3D like I did with Wonderful Oz

                Re: High Price of 3D

                Same thing. I love 3D. I would totally buy Vudu 3D. But the price of Vudu 3D is just too high. I'm basically forced into Ultraviolet or Vudu 2D (Wally pre-orders) and Blu-Ray 3D.

                Here's my round about way of doing it.

                I buy the Wal-Mart 2D pre-order and in time when things settle out I buy a second handle 3D disc of the movie on Blu-Ray.

                Other times I'll buy a combo back and keep the 3D blu-ray and UV and sell off the rest.

                Just make it simple and reasonable Hollywood.

                If I can get a 3D BD, 2D BD, DVD, UV, & iTunes for 50+% off why do I still have to pay FULL retail for ONE digital copy of a 3D UV that cost WAY less to make and distribute and produces more profit for the studio?

                Until the studios find a way to charge me comparable rate I'll keep doing it the round about way that just costs them more money and me less money until they catch up and update their business model from cart and buggies.

                  Re: High Price of 3D

                  It just seems like the studios are willing to let 3D flounder and die. Especially with old and substandard content. I almost bought John Carter 3D ( I actually liked it a lot ) on Vudu. I'm glad I didn't. For $35 I would have assumed SD, HD & HDX would have been included. Saved me a lot of aggravation reading about it here. Thanks.

                    3D is the ONLY part of my collection (barring titles not available) that I don't have on Vudu.

                    There are many reasons:

                    Most titles on 3D bluray just not available on 3D Vudu
                    3D bluray is typically much cheaper
                    3D bluray typically comes as combo and better value
                    3D bluray typically has same sound as 2D version, 3d Vudu doesn't always
                    3d bluray can be preordered

                    At the current moment, its just sad to have to keep 3d titles isolated and for so many reasons.

                      Re: High Price of 3D

                      It's not available with all the 3D movies, but VUDU sometimes offers a bundle that includes both the 3D and 2D versions for $35. Current examples are Ironman 3 and Oz the Great and Powerful...

                      With anything from Sony, I'd definitely still buy the 3D bluray versions as you can get them on sale, and Sony is the one studio I know about that has opted to have their UV codes redeem both 3D and HDX copies from VUDU.

                      Prices for a lot of the 3D titles will go down between Black Friday and Christmas. If the prices are set by the studios, maybe the VUDU versions will go down during that time as well...

                        Re: High Price of 3D

                        I never bought into the 3D home stuff, but recently needed to get a new tv and the tv that had a good price and picture just happened to also be 3d. I don't own a 3d blu ray player, but netflix has some 3d content for free with membership so I checked it out. And I love it, not so much their selection but I do enjoy home 3d. I agree with the others here though, they are killing themselves on getting people to switch to 3d. I don't intend to buy a 3d player, I prefer streaming. I purchased a 3d movie at the store with ultraviolet thinking it'd be available streamed in 3d since vudu does that. I wish I read here where only sony includes the 3d version, I'm rather upset they don't state on the box if the ultraviolet includes the version you are paying for. If I had known about it, i'd have just bought the 3d version on vudu and not bothered with a disc at all. And they (studios) wonder why people pirate movies! I'm not angry at vudu, I know they don't have a say in how the studios market their discs. Just feeling a bit angry for overpaying for a normal version.

                          I second that, but understand that it comes down to bundling options with the studios. Still, I didn't hesitate to buy the Winter Soldier 3D/2D pack, but wish I hadn't bought Godzilla in 3D Only since only 1 devices supports 3D.

                          I've been anxiously waiting for Age of Extinction but, inexplicably, it only came out today in 2D offerings. I'll wait til it's out on Blu Ray so I can get the combo 2D/3D pack even though I'd much rather have it on Vudu.

                            I sort of wish that all 3D movies I buy that come cobo'ed with Digital Copies also had a code for 3D Digital Copies. I do not think I have one yet that did that and I have 80+ 3D Blurays. I have heard instances where some have redeemed their digital copies and got a 3D copy instead of 2D. But I have not been that lucky. Even with the same version of movies they had it happen in.

                            I am with everyone else on this subject of pricing for 3D Movies in VUDU. We should get the Streaming version equivalent to what we can get outside of the service. From a business perspective it will just make customers buy the movies elsewhere and just redeem them here so that VUDU would only be getting royalties for the redemption. If they do get royalties or something for them.
                            Personally though I actually prefer the Bluray 3D versions of movies for a few reasons outside price for value. I think they actually look and sound better than the streaming versions and the main reason being I do not have to rely on the Internet to see them whenever I want. Many times when I use the streaming service for when I travel the places I go do not have a good enough Internet connection to actually play the movies in 3D let alone some HD versions. So I often get my 3D movies as physical copies. That is for when I actually want to own them. AS far as renting goes, VUDU is a great service for renting 3D movies to see if you may like to buy them down the line. My VUDU Collection keeps growing and most of late were conversion of my older movies and up-converting them to HD. It is great to have my current collection added to the my Streaming library. But If I saw deals on movies in VUDU that would make me want to purchase them through their service instead I would go for it. AS far as the price of some 3D movies go it is just a better deal to get them outside the service. So that just puts it over the top in my decision making for going that route with my 3D Movie Collection.

                              I agree the price is way too high for Digital content only, another big issue of mine is buying 3D bluray but the Digital copy is non-3D we should get both version from vudu.

                              the only reason 3D isnt bigger is the high price nobody gonna pay 30-40 bucks for a movie lol

                              i hope whoever dictactes this needs wake up and smell the movie, lower price youll make more money by volume, period.
