    Re: Free Content on Vudu

    I'd rather have them charge me something like $1 for each episode than have commericals. I've been time shifting TV since 1984 so I rarely watch commercials, except for something like the Superbowl.

I think the only way they'd do this is if FF was disabled.
    Well, I have a non-HD TiVo (S2DT), so to get HD shows I either have to watch them live or record them on my HTPC. But I imagine most people don't have that luxury, so Vudu as a distribution platform would seem suitable, especially since they can put more titles out there (like you said, all seasons of all shows).

    And, naturally, I take it for granted that fast-forwarding through ads would be disabled.

    You really can't FF while streaming...

    P.S. Vudu also needs to add Season Pass options to TV Shows, so you could purchase an entire season at once and, hopefully, for a discounted price (which is what iTunes does, I believe).
    They also have shows available with Comast On demand in HD. FIOS in my area has many CBS and NBS shows but only in SD so far. Comast has the CBS shows fre but charges for the NBC shows. FIOS has the CBS and NBC shows for free.

    Are there plans to offer any of the TV shows in HD sometime this year?

    Re: Free Content on Vudu

    Great surprise the morning I discovered the new free content. I went ahead and "purchased" all the TV pilots for later viewing. Having fun catching up this week, especially 'My Name is Earl' which friends have been recommending but I've never seen. After the pilot, I purchased the next one and likely will get all of them. How SWEET to watch straight through... no commercials, no FF'ing, no concern that content will disappear to make room for something else. And that scroll wheel... wow. So easy to roll back if I missed a line. Yes, I'm addicted to the remote. Thanks much, VUDU gods!

    Same here. I have a 6 mbps down and a couple of times I have had the current position hit into the "buffer area" of the playback bar. Looking at my router graphs defiantly was an issue with AT&T DSL killing me causing all my application went down to almost zero transfers at the same time.

    Best to keep an eye open on what your ISP is doing.

    * Phase of the moon was wrong.

    As far as I'm concerned, most TV content should be "Own for 50 cents, Rent for $0.00"
    Agreed. That would be way cool...

    Then just if Vudu could get current run shows in HD...I'd be one happy camper...

    It's the future...

    We've reported this to the authorities.

    By the way - I was watching one last night and my show actually caught up to the download b/c I got a message that told me that I was at the end of the available content (or something to that affect). I paused it for a about 2 minutes and then everything was just fine.

    But I find that rather odd as my connection speed is typically around 4.5mbps.
