Vudu is an online movie and TV streaming service that is owned by Wal-Mart and has been around for over ten years. They do offer $2 for two day DVD rentals which is extremely competitive for movie rentals. Their main business stems from digital streaming, providing even more, entertainment options to consumers.

With Vudu, you only pay for what you watch - there are no subscriptions and no late fees.
All streaming through Vudu is ad free which makes for a great user experience.
Vudu boasts about their large media library of over 15,000 movies and 2,000 TV series.
Vudu claims movies will be available the same day they are released on DVD. This is a huge advantage over Netflix, where you have to wait 28 days after a movie is released before it's available.
Vudu is now compliant with UltraViolet, meaning any DVDs or Blu-ray discs cleared by studios for digital distribution can be uploaded to the cloud and watched through Vudu.
Vudu has many great features to their services. The best feature is that you only pay for what you watch. There are no subscriptions, no late fees, just rental or purchase payments. Also, users have a very large library to choose from. And, movies are released to Vudu the same day they are released on DVD, so users don't have to wait to watch new movies.
Services like Netflix or HuluPlus cost only $7.99 per month for
viewing while just one movie on Vudu could cost you $5.99, and a TV episode will run you a couple dollars.
Vudu is not available for viewing on PCs. If you want to watch a movie or TV show on your iPad, you have to download the Vudu app.
As we mentioned before, you can upload any UltraViolet movies you've purchased to Vudu. However, Vudu will charge you for each movie that you upload (between $2-$5).
Vudu does have a few drawbacks, aside from their many good elements. The main drawback to note is that their rentals are expensive for this industry. Monthly unlimited watching subscriptions on Netflix or HuluPlus only cost $7.99, and a single movie rental on Vudu can be $5.99. Also, Vudu isn't available for watching on PCs.

Would give them zero if I could. I received a Vudu movie as a gift and I can't even redeem it unless I give them my credit card information. I don't feel comfortable giving my credit card information to a company who has already had their system breached before. I would much rather just buy gift cards and used those but after repeated emails with Vudu customer support there was nothing they could do for me.
Vudu are lying thieves that won't do anything to help you.I have over 300 movies.Two of my movies disappeared.They won't honor and replace my missing movies. Don't risk losing your money with them. I was a loyal fan of them and profitable customer.Not any more. You've been warned
Vudu is the worst for streaming movies. It's always stopping and can't enjoy a movie. If a movie is 2 hrs it takes you 4.5 hours to watch it. My signal is good and no reason can my internet find any issues. Will not be renting any more movies from them.
I was double charged for one movie and and then charged for another. Never got the movies. I emailed customer service 10 times over the course of two months. they never resolved, called me a liar even though I screenshot my bank statement showing the proof. I eventually had to go through my bank for fraudulent charges and then Vudu cancelled my whole account basically making my account a 500 dollar lose for 18 dollars in charges. Beware, never buy or rent anything from them they will basically ignore you and be disrespectful. I only asked for a refund or the items I paid for.
Very large library of movies to watch for free. Great sales without leaving the house. Being able to download and watch anywhere on multiple devices is great.
I love having one place for all of my digital movies. I do think their rental rate is a little high, but they have a lot of sales on movies, and have a lot of great movies that are free with ads!
We buy many movies off of VUDU and I can’t complain. They run deals all the time which I really like. They download instantly and are ready to watch.
We have over 700 movies on vudu. We love vudu, it is very affordable and very user friendly. they have great customer service, my son bought some movies by accident and they took them off and refunded us the money no questions asked.
I really like Vudu. I enjoy the amount of videos they have available and the ease of access. I can watch my movies anywhere and stay entertained when I need it.
I love Vudu! I have a ton of DVDs/BluRays, and I am trying to migrate everything to the cloud. Vudu lets me purchase digital copies of many of the videos I already own for less than I would have to pay to buy the video again. It's a great service!
Like having a place to put digital copies of my movies and that it has an app for my Roku.
Vudu streaming service with the options to also buy is a nice feature. The SD quality need some improvements.
Email customer support is horrible!!!! Sent 3 messages and not even a courtesy response.
Vudu is amazing for both renting/buying movies and tv shows but also getting a digital version of the discs you already own by just putting in a simple code. Once you put in the code you can watch all your movies anywhere and that is amazing.
Vudu has a ton of recent movies. The quality of the movies are in HD, so the quality is always good.
I bought a movie through Vudu that was very difficult to find. The billing process was simple, and movie turned out in a great quality. I would definitely buy from them again.
Incredibly disappointed. Automatically links your payment information from Walmart so when my 1 year old son was just clicking on our tv remote he purchased a rental of the movie. Asked for a refund and was told that they didn't do that. There are much better options out there than VUDU. Cannot recommend them in any way.
TERRIBLE!!!! I had over 500 movies. Now i dont. I was told on the phone theres nothing they can do. offered my $4.99. cool a free rental. Forget that. NEVER AGAIN!!!!
Completely unable to sign into my account transferred over from Flixster (with whom I never had any issues at all). Support took way longer to get back to me and were completely unhelpful. Thus, all my movies are completely inaccessible and all I get after resetting my password for the tenth time is “login failure.” So frustrating! If I could give this company zero stars I would.
vudus allows you to stream anywhere, which is very helpful for a busy family. it’s affordable and is very convenient:)))
Such an easy way to stream movies! So worth the price!! I haven't found any movies that I want that they don't have. Such a great
I really like this company it makes streaming for new movies fairly easy way better than having to actually go to the store and buy a DVD I only wish that when they have the newest movies available they would also give you the option to rent the movie instead of just owning it instead you have to wait for a while before your able to rent it so kinda sucks but it's ok.... I also kinda wish they had an area of all the movies you've purchased in one place it about you but I dnt have the best memory so having to search movies I already own kinda sucks it'd be nice to be able to go to a tab of all the movies I've purchased in one area cuz honestly sometimes it what I wanna watch until I see the cover or read the title
I have used Vudu mostly after purchasing a dvd or blue ray and the digital version is an option to download. It is sometimes a bit hard to down load, but appreciate being able to have it.
It is so fun to carry around movies in your pocket! VUDU is so easy to navigate it took me a total of 15 seconds to understand how to use it. I enjoy being able to download movies I have purchased on DVD straight to my phone.
Awful! They charged my sister four times for a movie she already owns. Her kids thought they were watching the movie. Customer service refused to reimburse the money for a movie they owned! Plus they've tried to removed their bank information but it Vudu won't let it be deleted.
The worst customer service I have ever experienced. They ignore your issue and close your case as they say have a nice day.
I love having an app on my phone that I can easily download and watch movies. Unlike other competitors Vudu also has a free movie section that you can enjoy with just a select number of ads. I also really enjoy having vudu as my digital backup for DVDs I own.
Very nice service, I have never had any problems. Have a good selection of movies, and you can use digital codes as well, which is nice.
I like vudu! I love that I can buy a movie on dvd and then be able to stream it on my phone later.
I emailed the support team and they quickly answered many of my questions. Great service.
I have used their service a lot to watch my own movies and there has never been a lot of lag!
Vudu is great! I can watch new releases on my home tv, no matter if I want to own them or just rent them. It's easy to search for the shows that I am looking for and I've never had a billing issue.
This is a great idea! When we get a movie with a digital copy we add it to our account, and we can watch it anywhere. It is really good for travel. The price for renting movies are a little too expensive when compared to redbox, but the variety is much better.
I love using vudu to watch the latest released movies and is very easy to navigate . It would be nice if it was a monthly fee instead of payment by movie. Sometimes i get frustrated when the movies buffer alot
Vudu helps me access some of my favorite TV shows and movies. This saves me time trying to record them on my DVR.
Vudu isn’t popular enough unfortunately. They always have every movie I want so I typically buy here for cheap if it’s not on Netflix or Hulu.
I like the ability to watch new and old movies on Vudu from my own home. It makes movie night easy and their prices are better than buying the movie from the store. It's easy to use and I would reccomend it to everyone.
I have really enjoyed our membership with Voodoo! It allows me to share the movies with all of my kids and keep them in one place! And I love how they've integrated with Walmart also. Great service and I would highly recommend.
Vudu is a great medium for tons of different entertainment devices. Vudu is very easy to navigate and it links to TVs which is great.
I've only used the service once, but it was great. If you don't mind watching an ad or two, you can see the shows you want.
Vudu has been a fantastic way to store all of our movies and access them easily! We haven't had any issues with their service so far. It's very user friendly and convenient.
We use it for the digital copies of our family movie vault so everyone can access the movies. It's handy because we can watch the movies on the iPad or the desktop.
I love this service! Vudu is the perfect service if you are looking for a movie night, but you don't want to leave the house. They have a great selection of older and newer movies. I would highly recommend them.
We have used Vudu a lot to rent movies to watch as a family... Its simple and easy. Their app/website is simple and easy to navigate to find what movie you are looking for!
i like the selection they have and allows me to buy movies for my kids on there devices. movies start from where you left off which is great. i like the benefit of not having to remember to return it and get charged extra for late fees.
We love having all of our movies in one place. Easy to use and they have a great variety.
we have a family account and we take turns buying movies we can watch over and over again, especially the kids who likes to watch the same movie over and over again. good quality picture. you can find good deals as well.
i like that they have a variety of selections to choose from. picture quality is clear. my mother and sisters and i take turn buying movies and we have quite a selection already.
good quality picture with a lot to choose from. a little pricey. but i like the variety it has.
super awesome. wide selection. has current films. not badly priced either.
