    News: Walmart Considering Selling Vudu


    News story is currently on Cord Cutters, Fox Business, and the Information. Cord Cutters and Fox both cite the Information as a source.

    Would post links, but forgot that you can't do that anymore. Google Walmart, Vudu, and a source to turn up the stories.

    The Information seems to be the main source of this, which reported weeks ago that Sony was looking to sell their live TV streaming service Vue. As we found out this week, Sony is shutting down Vue in 2020, so this does not look good either coming from that same source.

      Hope this isn't true but I just went from looking forward to the Holiday sales to thinking I'm not sure if I should make any more purchases from here until we hear more. Now the worry begins about what will happen to our collections.

        Wal-Mart has basically confirmed they are looking to sell, via The Hollywood Reporter:

        In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, a Walmart spokesperson said "We're constantly having and open to conversations with new and existing partners to explore opportunities for continued growth; however, we never share details of those discussions."

        If this weren't true, they would have denied the potential sale as it will affect sales until we know what is happening.

          Well that's it then, I don't dare make any further purchases on Vudu. This sucks.

            I hope someone better than Walmart buys it, they were never a good fit for it anyways. Vudu originally catered to people who cared about quality, Walmart's audience goes more for whatever is cheapest. I was really mad that the adult movies were pulled when they took over also, censorship is never a good thing. Vudu still has the best quality and interface overall, the free movies with commercials have kind of cheapened the experience but at least most of those still include the option to pay and see them commercial-free, and they don't butt into end credits assuming you don't want to watch them like Netflix (which I no longer use because of that.)

              No, Wal-Mart needs to stay and improve - and invest appropriately to keep up with their competitors. Vudu is the winner when it comes to digital providers. You are our first choice, that is the consensus. Care about your customers more than your bottom line. I'm guessing that you aren't taking a loss anyways. There are many of us that will question your integrity if you give up on "OUR provider of choice" due to laziness and your Net Profit/Loss statement. You are better than all of the others, PERIOD! You offer D2D, MD2D, Television, Paramount, MGM, Lionsgate, etc. We are many, and proud to use your service - but, I for one will never purchase another item from Walmart if you vacate your loyal customers.

                Well this has put a complete stop on me buying anything on Vudu until something is known.

                  Agreed. Might as well cut my losses. Maybe try Amazon now.

                    I hope Vudu makes some kind of statement about this. Let us know what's going to happen to our non-MA movies. Until then, I'm reluctant to buy any non-MA movies at Vudu.

                      Some of you weren't here when the Walmart sale was announced- many said that they'd be leaving Vudu then. I'm kinda surprised I didn't leave entirely, but despite the negatives it's still been the best.

                        I wonder how this connects to the rumor that Vudu might be changing its name to Walmart Video (or something similar). There was a whole other thread about that a few days ago but now I can't find it. Someone pointed out there was a hidden app on Roku for Walmart Video as well as the website: https://video.walmart.com

                          Yup, just tried searching for that thread again but it does indeed appear to be gone.

                            You all think just because if Walmart sales to someone else, you will lose all of your movies. That won't happen. I highly doubt anything changes except for the owner, just like everything stayed the same (basically) when Walmart bought Vudu to begin with.

                              A week later that hidden channel disappeared from my roku. It was weird having a pink cursor highlight the titles in the app.
