When we talk about the best deal for streaming video, there's no question that Netflix is still at the top of the list. When we talk about quality though, Vudu reigns supreme. They do it right, reaching near Blu-ray quality with HDX films. Today they've taken another step in the right direction, offering customers the ability to download purchased movies. Simply swing on over to Vudu, go to your purchased movies list and hit "download." Nice and easy.
Vudu hasn't specified a format for the downloaded titles but we're hoping they'll be nice and easy to transfer to a game system, phone or tablet. Either way, it's nice not to have to be online to enjoy a movie you own. The one downside to the download service is that you're stuck with the standard definition PC/Mac version of the movie. Still, it's a great step forward.
