    Where did the 99 cent movies go?

    Thought I'd catch a flick or two yesterday under the 99 cent program and it does not appear on my screen.

    Where did it go?

        99 cent movies are now gone again.

        Is this only happening to me?

        I just checked and no 99 cent films.

          From what I understand is the 99 cent promotion is over with. It was great while it lasted. I got to see a buch of great movies. I am sure there will be other promotions coming out.

            Was that announced somewhere?

            Bad move by VUDU as is the removal of many films.

            That will not give them the competive edge on some of the other systems hot on their heels.

              I don't think it's a "bad move". Promotions of that sort are usually for a limited time only, regardless of the product. I'm sure there was some expense with running that promotion and they may find it better to spend those promotional dollars elsewhere. As far as I'm concerned, they have a competitive edge where it counts. That's in quality of the product and selection (as far as movies is concerned). I think they are a bit behind on the TV side of things though and I hope they can find a way to enhance that.

                Maybe I "missed" that this was a "promotion" and for a limited time.

                Do you have a reference or is that speculation?

                It is ALWAYS bad marketing to add and subtract services and content WITHOUT reasonable notification.

                I am a dealer and sell VUDU to my clients. It is a little difficult to sell them on the availability of certain movies, and certain price points as "advantages" only to have content and features change without warning or communication.

                In this highly competitive market place, VUDU has some distinct advantages over most other VOD services, but it needs to maintain these advantages and NOT cycle or reduce them.

                  Nothing concrete. It just seemed that way to me based on the nature of the offer. It is specially priced content. I never thought of it as an aspect of the Vudu service itself. They can raise their price on their non "sale" items too after all. My point wasn't that it was a posted promotion so it was ok. My point was that it costs Vudu money to provide that feature and it was done to promote new business, thus making it a promotion. If they can use that money to promote new business in other ways, that would be the right thing to do from a business perspective. That's why I said that I didn't think it was a bad move.

                  I understand your point about the dealer thing. I think it would definitely be better to keep the dealers in the loop on things like this. As a customer, my own personal opinion is that it seemed reasonable to have it disappear without any specific notice or warning.

                    Re: Where did the 99 cent movies go?

                    I think when it first came out last summer it was billed as a 99 cent summer block buster special or something like that. I too believed (at least initially) that it was a temporary thing. But it went on a long time and I think people forgot that and thought it was like that always. So I was disappointed when it went away as you and others are.

                    Your concern is certainly legitimate and understandable.

                    It is tough when trying to sell people on that but I'd never use the cost of the movies as a tool to sell. I'd focus on the aspects that make Vudu great - the value. People buy value. They don't buy price. If they did, Ponderosa would still be in business and places like Morton's or Ruth's Criss would be out of business.

                      Reference 1 - http://forum.vudu.com/showthread.php?t=2873

                      Quote from that announcement:

                      "In this age of $4-a-gallon gas and staycations, we felt that VUDU customers deserved a break and should be able to watch a great film for just 99 cents,"
                      Gas is under $2 per gallon these days, so I guess the staycations are no longer in vogue. Further "staycation" context for the 99 cents promo can be found in the web page at http://www.vudu.com/aboutus_99_for_99.html

                      Not saying I'm happy that it happened, I'm just providing the reference you requested. That's what us brains like to do sometimes. Perhaps somebody in Vudu figured out how many AIG executives owned Vudu's and figured out this was one way to get in on another windfall due to congressional incompetence.
