    Just a guess, but it may be because people are willing to pay that much. If people wouldn't pay that much, prices would have to come down. Blame high prices on the customers, not the company.

      As much as I like vudu, I will probably start buying from Amazon.com when they launch UV compatibility, because their prices are usually lower.

        The studios set the prices I believe. That's why every single HDX from WB in exactly $20 (and I think Fox is $23). Sony and Universal have more variety in their prices here. Paramount prices vary a little. Hopefully, some studios start offering a variety of prices especially for back catalog,

        I looking at that too, but if you want HD UV (so you can watch HDX here), Amazon's HD selection is lacking.

          I doubt that Prices are set by the studios, For I have been comparing prices from Amazon, Cinema Now and iTunes and they all are different. Amazon and Cinema Now are often cheaper, but mostly only for catalog titles, not new ones.

            Yes very overpriced. With the prices they charge here they should be mailing you the Blu-ray disc with your purchase just like we get the digital copy with the Blu-ray disc purchase.

              But if Vudu was in full control of their pricing scheme, why would it be so inconsistent? Why would every single title from some certain studios be set to on fixed price (and that price differed from studio to studio), while other studios have two or three cheaper prices for catalog titles? If Vudu was in full control, it would all be one price across the board or it would be tiered the same across the board,

              Also, a lot of CinemaNow is SD-only. Out of their 10 movies in Featured New Releases on home page, only 1 is in available in HD. When you compare their HD prices to HDX's, its not very different (and in some cases, worse). And yes, Amazon is cheaper than most in almost every department, because they like to sell at cost or undersell just to generate sales (not that that's a bad thing).

                I agree that some of their movies are overpriced. However, I feel that the D2D feature more than makes up for some of their high prices. Also, they do have regular sales on movies if you want to buy something cheap.

                  If you want lower streaming quality, by all means, purchase from Amazon for the lower price. In my experience, Amazon's streaming quality is vastly inferior to VUDU's (comparing the Amazon to the VUDU app on my TV); HD looks like SD.
