    Whoa! Nice! I wonder how long it's been there? I kept looking under the Filters for it, but didn't notice the "button." Thank you Vudu!

    • Recent additions sort has been removed from Movies - FIXED
    • "Collections" has been removed or severely reduced (I see "Horror" and "Kids Zone" Storefronts, but not the rest) I regularly used the "Independent Cinema" collection, and now this and many others have been omitted
    • Individual TV episodes no longer display UV status. Please restore
    • Audio Information for TV shows is missing, can this be restored?
    Bumping because Vudu needs to be reminded to repair the things that were ruined with their new interface

    Not sure if this has been covered but it would be nice to be able to break apart bundles that are purchased together. Especially since some of the bundles have movies that are not related at all.

    Well, I guess I am in the minority when I say I don't like the "new" look/site at all. Mostly, for me, it is slower than hell. As I scroll down looking for movies, many times, I am just looking at blank titles that sometimes takes 30 secs. to just fill in the movie pictures. I see that "new" Vudu loading sign for painfully long times. As I click on different movies just to see the description it can take 20 to 30 secs. just to complete a name change. I have a 50 MB internet connection at home, so for me, the new look blows. At a completely different location which has a 100 MB internet connection it is not any faster. The previous Vudu site did not have any of these problems. Just last night, I had to click on (1) movie I own (6) different times just to get it to play since I was getting the same "Failed to play movie" error over and over. I have Smart TV's, Roku boxes, etc. and all act the same way on the Vudu site. If I go to the Apple iTunes website and play the same movies from there, I have no problems and no delays. Apple, Netflix, Hulu do not seem to have any problems. Vudu app - horribly slow and that started the very moment the "New Look" was deployed.

    2) The new interface still lacks the ability to search your own library, which is a MUST. You can do it on the mobile app, you should be able to do it on the site. And the TV app, for that matter.

    3) When a TV season ports from another retailer (FandangoNow, etc), Vudu shows that you own the episodes, but not the season itself, which is very confusing and annoying. Please make it to where if someone owns all of the episodes of a season, they own the season.

    4) Please add more studios to the filter function. "Other Studios" includes way too many. HBO, Criterion Collection, etc.

    5) Please add a "Start From the Beginning" option when playing a title that has already been started

    6) Please add sorting options to the Wishlist

    7) Please please PLEASE add a search function to the Balance and History page
    These are all VERY good suggestions. Please add these Vudu! Your very loyal customers will appreciate it!

    it doesn't work perfect.... but if you look below the first few lines... I see some new stuff added every now and then.

    for instance if you wanted to look at the "Recently Added" "Scifi" movies ... it would look like this... " https://www.vudu.com/content/movies/...ntly%2520Added "

This is very time consuming and quite irritating, what is the big deal anyways?
    you can get around that by typing one letter into the box.... then just highlight that and you can paste into it...

    What's sad is the fact that this thread gets pushed to the third page without an acknowledgement from a representative from Vudu that these are issues. I guess we're all supposed to be happy that we have a prettier interface with less functionality. Do we have to wait another 10 years for these matters to be addressed?
