    Just got my first 3D movie at Vudu and I wonder if it's a mistake.

    The movie is Oz The Great and Powerful. I got it by redeeming the Disney Movies Anywhere code. I got 200 Rewards points, the movie itself doesn't show up anywhere, not even DMA, but the 3D version is redeemed on Vudu. So in this case the "Anywhere" in Disney Movies Anywhere means "only at Vudu and only on my 3D Smart TV."

    This particular set came with only the 3D disc and digital copy code. No 2D or DVD. Except for the single disc Bolt 3D which was only exclusively available with some new 3DTVs and did not have a digital copy, I have never before or since seen a Disney release that wasn't a multi-format bundle.

    I sent off a tech support request to DMA to see what they say about it. Best case scenario, which I suggested but I know there's no way on earth they will do it, would be to add a 2D digital copy of Oz, and 3D copies of the several other movies I have which came with 3D discs. I am not holding my breath.

    FYI in case anybody was wondering. Disney did give me the 2D copy of Oz, but did nothing regarding the other 3D titles.

      Does the code from the 3D Blu-ray of Oz the Great and Powerful still redeem 3D at Vudu. I didn't know it ever had or I would have used my code to get it. I still have my code sitting unused.

        No idea, probably the only way to find out would be to try it. Back when I did it, it was Disney Movies Anywhere where it was redeemed and it somehow ported to Vudu as 3D. Maybe FelipeF or Support could answer that question?

          Ah. Thank you for the info. In that case, I have a feeling it won't now. But maybe FelipeF can tell us.

            I redeemed the code with that disc a long time ago and only got the 2D version, which I'd never watch. The disc has zero extras though, so the redemption is the only way to see those.

              No code to my knowledge has ever redeemed a 3D version, even if the "case" had the 3d disc.

                There were actually several titles that used to redeem 3D at Vudu. Most were 3D Sony codes. I don't think any do anymore though.

                  I also had several codes from 3D blu-rays that redeemed in 3D. Most of mine were Sony as well. Some were Disney. There was a few others.

                  Personally I never bought a 3D title on Vudu directly. Very few if any redeem as 3D from 3D disc packages, and I no longer have 3D equipment.

                  Kind of a dead end unless you really work at it and have no problem paying through the nose for it.

                    To me, I've redeemed a bunch of 3D codes and personally have never received a 3D copy on VUDU. If you guys are reporting that 3.00% of all the 3D codes redeem in 3D, woo. But I am just saying that you can't go into buying a 3D Bluray combo thinking it will redeem on VUDU in 3D.

                    It's similar to 4K purchases from Fox. Fox only gives the HDX quality on a UHD code.

                      Yep, it's a crapshoot.

                      I got lucky again more recently, found "Gamer 3D" in a $5 display at Walmart. Redeeming the UV code got me the 3D version of the movie. Then I scanned the receipt in the WalMart app on my phone and it gave me the HDX version. Weird.

                        RebelRave this is no longer the case. While older pressings do not redeem 4k, newer pressings, and things released starting last summer do contain 4k codes

                          Thread is about 3D, and nearly all 3D have historically and still do do (largely) redeem as 2D.

                          The only side side comment about being similar to Fox redeeming as HDX as being similar to 3D redeeming as 2D is also still largely true. I?ve bought several Fox recent 4K releases historically and (largely) still redeem as HDX.

                          Now the majority of studios that redeemed HDX from 4K in the past and mostly redeeming as 4K now, with the exception on the aforementioned Fox; well and Paramount to an extent.

                          In any case 3D for home is more or less on its death bed unfortunately.

                            I agree with your assessment if you add the qualifier "in the United States."

                            It seems every new and recent 3D title are still being released in overseas markets but very few of them in the US.

                              As far as 3D theatrical movies, they are constantly released. Largely this has to with China production company films. One make with American actors but with one hot Chinese star. China is also full of 4DX.

                              But it if you check TV, even outside of the US they are not really being made even a fraction of what they are.

                              So 3D films are mainly only in theaters with very little on video, even in China (largest 3D market) or elsewide beside the U.S.
