    Default Why only 24 hours on rentals

    I started Inception the other night at 7. Had to stop at 8 and couldn't get back to it till the next night at 7. By then, it was expired. I cannot watch while sleeping or at work, only nightly between 7 and 9 or so. Rent for 48 hours and I'll rent a lot more. Rent for 7 days and I would rent everything from you and probably cancel Dish Network.

    The rental periods depend on the studio. Some movies have a 48 Hour time frame, but most are 24 like you are saying. I will be happy to submit the feedback and hopefully we can extend rental periods in the future.

    Default Re: Why only 24 hours on rentals and only 1 device

    My son in college rented a movie at school and wanted to finish it at home. Why are rentals only available on one device? I am planning on putting a device in another room in the house - if i am renting shouldn't matter which device i play it on.

    The rental is tied to the users account.

    So if his account was set up on both devices he would be able to watch his selected movie.

    I agree, all movies should be 2 day rentals. I hope Vudu changes this but it's doubtful..

    30 hours would be a good compromise. For those times when you start one night but can't finish. Then you would still have time to finish watching the next night.

    I had exactly the same scenario and it was with Inception as well. I actually had to rent it again to finish the movie. 24 Hours is NOT long enough for a working person who can't stay up late to finish a movie. Please extend to at least 48 hours. I would also rent a lot more movies from Vudu if it weren't for the 24 hour limit.
