Dont waste your money. This solution WILL not last, and they KNOW it. I wont convert movies. I will not create any other accounts, and I will NOT invest my money and time into something they cannot even comment on in a public forum. Other less educated people will, and thats what they are counting on. I suggest everyone boycott VUDU until they figure out what Netflix, among others, have. I personally will not spend another dime on VUDU.

    BTW, dont try the DRM trick, it IS POSSIBLE!

    Boycott vudu because they wont give me and an Android app? No. That is silly. Your silly. VUDU is a growing company that I support, they are doing a good job and making their best effort to satisfy us. I appreciate them.

      Has anybody seen an explanation from Vudu regarding why devices running Android aren't supported for full Vudu access?

        I have spoken with vudu support and the main reason is the movie studio. If the movie studio doesn't want an android application then then VUDU can't use one.

            I don't believe that for one second. Flixster, Amazon Instant Video, and others have Android apps that stream movies.

              Re: Vudu for Android OS's?

              Im not at all happy. I just spent $50 converting my favorite DVDs and Blu-rays to Vudu. 60%of them aren't on Flixster. And even though I paid for HDX, I can only stream in SD on my PC. That's BS. And I couldn't even pick individual movies for my free ones. I had to pick a set. What am i going to do with 2 free digital copies of the bodyguard? I don't even want one! Big Content is still putting bogus rules and restrictions ON THEIR PAYING CUSTOMERS.

              Amen, there should be a Vudu app on Android. And a UV one. And Fllixster. And they should not try to screw root users either. We're still paying customers, even if we root! Netflix figured out how to play protected content for root users. So can the rest of you!

              You should have an Android app yesterday.

                Just redeemed my Ultraviolet copy of the Hunger Games last evening, vudu was the only non-itunes option (I'm NOT an apple user). I have spent most of today trying to get it to play on my Android tablet, very frustrated. My other Ultraviolet movies play through flixster without any trouble on two android tablets and a Droid, but the hunger games is not from a studio that shows up on the flixster feed. I'm very tech savvy and can usually work my way through any situation, this one is extremely frustrating. I can get the vudu app to function on my LG smart TV without issue, but it says right on the hunger games package and insert that you can view the Ultraviolet copy via tablets and smartphones. Please tell me how that is possible on an android device when vudu is the only streaming option. This is a really a poor introduction to vudu, not impressed. Also, why is there no Roku channel? You guys need to step it up.

                  Disc to Digital is converting discs to UV not Vudu. Vudu is just another channel to view UV movies. Its also the easiest way to view UV movies IMO. I think its easier for Vudu as opposed to Flixster because they sell and rent digital movies already so they have agreements in place to stream them.

                  Regarding the 5 free movies, can we really complain about something being offered for free, its a bonus? Thats kind of like telling cereal manufacturers to provide the extra 25% of cereal in a separate package instead of in the box because you want to take it to work. Well maybe not but you get the point.

                  Yes, an android app would be cool and needed for an android tablet since they are becoming more available. I cant even argue this as devils advocate, like echopulse said, netflix, flixster and amazon all have apps. I mean come on at least make an app for tablets (3.1+ OS).

                      While it is true that Flixster has an app, it doesn't work.

                      From what I read somewhere else, VUDU has been working on an app for Andriod for several months now. So I think one is on the way. It just makes sense to have an app for Andriod based on the number of Andriod devices that have been sold.

                      In case you haven't figured this out yet, VUDU is a company who does not communicate with their customers what they are working on or when major features will be released. They do not seem to care that much about what features their customers are wanting, yet they will occasionally throw us a bone saying things like "we have sent your suggesting to the next level of support" and they will close your case without ever providing a defiant answer.

                      Of course I don't really believe that VUDU doesn't care. Perhaps some of our suggestions or cases simply ends up in front of an employee that doesn't care, a person who has had a bad day, or a person who has not been trained well. I just simply believe that they do not have procedures in place that allow them to communicate things like this to us. They do a good job of communicating to us about movie availablity, which is great because that is half of their business. Without content to stream where would they be? But the other half is technology and software. Without the ability to allow customers to access and steam the content where would they be?

                      They have been sailing on the fact that they don't have much competition up till now. Hopefully things will change with Redbox streaming coming by the end of the year. Since Verizon is involved in this venture with Redbox (and somehow TiVo fits into all this) I think we will see apps for Andriod, and apps that actually work, early on. Of course I am not a fan of Verizon, but I would expect to see better apps for cell phones and other hand-held devices from them than someone like Flixster or VUDU (I am not saying that Flixster and VUDU can't do it, just that the industry Verizon is in gives them an advantage when it comes to apps).

                      Anyway, I think the Andriod app you and I, and many others, are wanting will be available soon (I hope).

                        Well most of your post has been answered. Vudu does apparently care about us but they just dont tell us. They have recently brought HDX pc streaming and My Vudu sorting on Vudu enabled devices. Next logical step must be an Android app IMO.

                              It's only only tablets with ICS (4.0) or newer at the moment. None of my devices support it either. Although my tablet is supposed to be getting an ICS update soon, I'm just waiting on Verizon to push it out (so not holding my breath).

                                Now Vudu needs to use some the coding from the tablet app and make a smartphone app. Hopefully someone will modify the tablet app to work on smartphones tell Vudu gets around to it.
