    Search for 3D Rentals?

    How do we refine a search for 3D rentals?

    Also has anyone found out why half or more of the 3D movies aren't available as rentals?

    At first I thought it was just the studio, but it isn't...
    Such as "X-Men: Days of Future Past" can be rented in 3D,
    but "X-Men: Apocalypse" isn't allowed to be rented in 3D...

    So you might think it's restricting movies new release for rentals?
    But "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2" can be rented in 3D as well... and that released a few months back, on May 5th, 2017.

    Maybe it's just by studio? Since X-Men is done by 20th Century Fox.
    Nope, most of the Marvel Studios 3D movies can't be rented.
    That includes the first "Guardians of the Galaxy"...

    You answered your own question, it's the studios decision on what they make available for rent/own. There isn't many 3D rental titles out there to be honest. Seems that the studio would rather have you purchase them instead.

      Well that only answers the second question.

      The first question was directed to the VUDU movie search.
      Is there a easier way or an advance search option for solely '3D movie rentals' rather than checking each individual movie page?

      Such as typing in "3D" into the search field would yield also movie titles with the number "3" in it, as well as movie bundles, individual TV shows, and more junk.
      It wouldn't be an issue if all 3D movies were allowed to be rented, but it's more like 30% of the available library, so it's a crapshoot when clicking to see the details.

      The closest thing I see to an advance search option is if I go to the movie page to filter out the results, but that doesn't have the option for 3D movies. And you can't apply a filter on search results.

      The entire VUDU site seems to convoluted. For example, you can't use the search field to just look up actors and directors.
      Instead you have to search for the movie, then click on the movie details, and then click on the person to see their filmography for the list of movies available on VUDU to watch...
