    VUDU should also sell DVDs and Blu Rays with purchase.

    Hey VUDU - Grow your business.

    When I purchase from Amazon or anywhere I always look for the included UltraViolet as so I can add it to my Vudu account. This usually take a couple of days to complete because of snail mail.

    However I would like my Vudu account to offer to me in addition to UltraViolet purchase a DVD or Blu Ray purchase.

    This way I can watch it instantly and still receive the media. I like to purchase the media as so I can share it with family members that have a Blu Ray player in a part of the house without internet or poor internet access and also when the internet is not exactly up to par or down.

    Personally doesn't do anything for me. I only buy physical disc with a digital copy when it's cheaper than buying the digital only (Vudu) version.

    Currently Vudu is not set-up for physical disc and would require a restructuring of the company.

    Vudu doesn't have this kind of capital and there are plenty of other things they need to support the current (digital streaming) business model they built and have been growing.

    Physical copies died with the music industry and movies are going the same way.

    "In 2014 digital movie sales are up 47% from 2012, which makes them the fastest-growing category in home entertainment revenue"

    In which case spending capital to grow an expanding marketplace is a better choice and less risky than spending capital in a shrinking marketplace.

      Vudu is owned by Walmart. I think they have the cash.

      It does seem they should have Vudu copies on more Blu-ray movies. I like the deal they did with MGM, so I picked up a few.

        Thats more on Wal-Mart than Vudu, but I get what you're saying.

        I was thrilled they were all available at Wal-Mart website unlike many of the movies that have Vudu digital copies.

        The advantage here was for movies (specifically catalog titles) that just aren't available on Ultra-Violet.

          It's an interesting concept. Wal-Mart sells pre-orders, which gives you an early digital copy, then sends a blu-ray when it is released. Its fulfilled by Wal-Mart's distribution company, so vudu could use the same infrastructure, and make these pre-orders available on its website. I would probably use it. There are other ways they could grow their business though. One would be to add the ability to spend wal-mart gift cards at vudu. Another way to increase sales would be to allow upgrades from SD to HDX, and from the theatrical, to unrated, or even 3D versions of the film. I still have 88 films that are in SD that I would pay a few dollars to upgrade.

            I think the problem with this idea (and don't get me wrong, I like it myself) is that the studios control both the sales of the discs and the EST (electronic sell-through) sales. And we're seeing more and more that they're offering a code with the physical disc that includes a FREE (no additional charge) UV copy. While you could split the profit between the two formats, chances are they're considering the code a free incentive to buy the disc.

            Vudu would have to make their money on the profit from the disc, and that's not the business they're in. Walmart can do that, and IIRC they are offering Vudu codes with some movies, but that is to drive Walmart's profits, not Vudu's.
