Hmm, this sounds interesting. They do blu-rays for $2 each (dvd's are $2, dvd's are $5 if you want them converted to HD). Might be easier to do this then having to take the time to rip/convert my Blu-ray discs. Any there any downsides to this? I have never heard of a company that rips your movies for you and puts them in the cloud.

There isn't actually any ripping being done, what you do is download the Vudu To Go program, insert your Blu-Ray/DVD. It loads, and presto! It'll automatically identify the movie for you. You then simply go through the checkout process, and your done. It's incredibly simple. I ripped a few movies yesterday after I received this email. Took me about 3 minutes tops, to add 4 movies.

No real downsides to this, some movies are detected but not allowed to convert to digital, but this is more of an exception, (they probably don't have the publishers permission). Some are also incorrectly detected, so instead of the "Unrated" version of a movie, you might end up seeing a "Theatrical Cut". So just make sure you double check before confirming the selection.

On the plus side, they will be in the cloud "forever". The movies will automatically get linked to your Ultraviolet account if you have already linked both accounts together.

I did this with about 20 movies last month and couldn't be happier. Quality is excellent, price is right. I did upgrade a few DVDs to HDX (there are a few movies that are available in HDX that are not available on Blu-ray in the US - ie: eXistenZ and Mulholland Drive) and figured I'd eat the cost ($5 instead of $2) but since they refunded 50% to those of us that did 10 or more it worked out well.

It is tremendously handy having a large chunk of your video collection available anywhere you have an internet connection. Plays back in 1080p / up to 7.1 on the Roku 3 and similar devices. Also, since this is using Ultraviolet it will work on other UV rated platforms, like Flixster.

It may sound a bit ridiculous to pay any more for something you already own, but the quality and availability is awesome, no longer have to take hdds or discs with me.

$5 to upgrade a DVD might be cheaper/easier than upgrading to blu rays. Clever vudu.

Vudu is being backed by Walmart so I have started using it over Flixster (Which offers Disc to Digital conversion also but only for DVDs). As I figure that the purchasing power of Walmart is beneficial for their negotiations with the various movie studios, as most of the major studios are participating. I have had a great experience with the service as I can leave my BD and DVD collection at one house and not have access to them at my other locations or while on the road for work.

Most of your questions are answered here with regard to their Disc to Digital service. -

And it should be noted that you can link your VUDU account to both your Ultraviolet account and your Flixster account, granting you access to your movies from all of the companies within their individual apps on your smart tv, BD player, or other device (as long as you have internet). But you can also download a hard copy of the titles through their computer program, to have when you do not have internet access.

In addition I have been able to add my little sister to my account, under her own username so she has access to my collection in Texas as well (though you can only add one other user through VUDU and each account can only be tied to 5 devices at a time, and I do have more TVs than that.)

I guess I should state that I do not have any affiliation with any of the companies, but I have converted 240 (out of my 300 or so BDs) into their service. The reason I did not convert all of them, is that some of the titles were not eligible using the at home service. Most of the remaining were from studios without agreements with Vudu, though a few of them were eligible if I took the discs into Walmart and you can check this online at http://www.vudu.com/disc_to_digital.html

Flixster's [flixster.com] Disc-to-Digital offers 5 free copies. That's only SD though.

Also, keep in mind that alot of movies are not available for D2D for either service.
Flixster's eligible list [desk.com].

Also, 10 free movies when you sign up for Vudu [vudu.com], 10 free movies when you sign up for Cinema Now [cinemanow.com], and a few movies from Flixster [flixster.com]when you link Facebook and twitter or download the android app makes a nice little collection of free Ultraviolet SD movies.

Sounds genius to me.

You're paying for the convenience of the streaming service, not for the rights to what you already own.

Plus, if you lose your media you can still access this.

Nice. I didn't see the 50% off of 10 part when I saw this email yesterday.

Just wish they had more movies that were available. I have used the CinemaNow version of this and it's very hit or miss.

Would this work with Redbox rentals? or, do they have some sort of copywrite data written in it?

I really, really wish that there were any information out there about the technical standards of reissued films that are in HDX format (or even 720p or higher). We basically need a watchdog group (and better reviews at Vudu) to be a check against something that seems really likely: that many of these DVD to HDX purchases will actually just buy you upconverted standard-definition content. It takes a keen eye to spot fraud sometimes, and there's no proper way to sell HDX than doing a true master transfer from HD-equivalent sources. The fact that almost all of their titles, including many films that are only available on DVD and NOT on Blu-Ray, have HDX versions is very suspicious.
