    I'm not sure exactly how to react right now. I see some positives but I can't help but to react to the negative "quality" vibe that I get from anything Wal-Mart related. I currently see Vudu as a premiere service with excellent quality and I fear that any association with Wal-Mart may dumb the quality down quite a bit.

    But like I said, there are some positive to be had. The mass marketing of this could help push the envelope of digital distribution. But let's face it, it sure didn't do much for MP3s...

      I see your point and I agree, mebby. But I do think that, the more people have Vudu available on their t.v. sets and DVD players, the more people will discover this service -- and the more films and t.v. shows will be added. The growth of Vudu might mean that their awesome tech-support guys will be able to answer our questions within a few hours, but it will certainly mean that Wal-Mart's might will increase the size of Vudu's library.

        I just hope they will continue to support the early adopters with the Vudu Box.

          One wonders what this means for the adult services... and any other content deemed not to be "family friendly."

            Yea - I don't disagree with you. My only issue is the stigma associate with Wal-Mart and quality. But hopefully this will be a positive development for everyone.

              I've read that the acquisition is now official, and also fear for the future of the After Dark selection. I try to do as little business as possible with Wal-Mart anyways because of how they treat their employees and bully the companies that supply them.

                I'm with you on that, I stay away from Walmart at all cost, and would only ever shop there is a last resort! I'm not so sure I like the idea of throwing money at walmart.

                  Yep, sad to say that if this happens and Amazon's VOD quality gets better (I have both built into my Vizio TV) I'll be using Amazon just on principle (and no, I didn't buy my TV at Wal-Mart, I ordered it straight from Vizio.)

                  If Wal-Mart yanks the porn from Vudu I wonder if a new service will pick it up? Back when laserdiscs were the best format out there, Disney struck a deal with Image Entertainment to distribute their titles, but a condition was that they had to stop doing porn- Image was actually started by people in the porn business and their first LD titles were classic porn movies. They got around the Disney deal by letting one of their sons start a new company that just distributed adult movies called LaserDisc Entertainment- their packaging still looked similar to Image's discs. (I was a little surprised that Disney apparently doesn't have a problem with their stuff being on Vudu along with porn- I think their main concern was if the wrong label got put on the wrong disc or tape.)

                    They lost a customer here. I haven't shopped or stepped foot in A Wal-Mart or Sam's Club in 5 yrs. I won't give them a dime of my money.

                      I share your distaste for and avoidance of Walmart, Bigguy, but I still have to say that this is probably a good move for Vudu. As a startup they got their name up their with Apple and Netflix, but they needed this kind of corporate relationship if they want to become THE name in VOD. I had thought that they might enter into this kind of relationship with an electronics company like Phillips or Toshiba (anyone but Sony, really, who would probably create yet another proprietary format), but considering they already have partnerships with a bunch of manufacturers, they might be better off being owned by someone without a dog in that fight, so there's no pitting one against the other like with Blu-Ray/HD-DVD.

                        From the NYT:

                        Vudu also has a plentiful selection of pornographic movies available to its customers. A person briefed on the Wal-Mart deal said the retailer would close down that category ?immediately.?
                        So, Vudu staff, what will that mean for already-purchased content, or rented content that has not yet been watched?

                          Good question. Perhaps they'll ban users who have consumed such content or perhaps just send them shameful messages chastising viewing of that which they deem inappropriate?

                          Note: If there was a sarcasm font, I would have used it.

                              While I really like Walmart. I spend thousands each year there, and their warranties are much better and return periods longer than other stores like Best Buy. I'm not sure how I feel about them buying VUDU. I don't use the After Dark content so I guess as long as it doesn't affect mainstream movies I will be all for it. And with a big player like Walmart maybe the price can go down a dollar.
