While a library of 6,000 movies may seem like a lot, there were a few films I looked for which currently aren’t on the Vudu system. For example, the ‘70s horror movie The Car, which I remember watching late at night with my dad when I was a kid, was not listed in the Vudu catalog. I have little doubt that eventually the library will be as vast as any video outlet, but right now, there may be some movies that you can’t find.
Fifty movies may seem like a lot, but if you are like me, then you already own many more than this amount. Vudu says that a larger drive is in the works and possible even an external drive may be on the way, so this may be much ado about nothing, but I feel I should mention it.
Vudu rocks. It truly brings the movie store to your living room. It’s easy to use. It has no lines to wait in, no screaming kids to have to listen to and avoid stepping on, no fighting traffic and burning $4-a-gallon gasoline. The Vudu box is about the same cost as any other disc player you might consider purchasing. It provides access to tons of content with absolutely no hassle and no subscription fee. I sincerely recommend that you take some time and consider Vudu if you are thinking of getting a new player. It just might end your relationship with movie discs of all varieties.
