I went with 4-7. "Last Exit to Springfield" is perfection to me. I wish they had kept the original 4:3 format.

Yesterday, I just purchased a bunch at Amazon for 14.99! This sale is not only cheaper but has included more seasons for available for purchase. I wish I would have waited for this super sweet deal. I was so tempted as many of these seasons 3-19 were never available for purchase until now.

That's a big price difference. If you haven't watched them yet maybe you can contact Amazon say you bought by mistake maybe they refund you. Luckily for now I can watch The Simpsons on FX world, but being able to own the seasons on digital for such a low price is pretty tempting. Does anyone know how long the sale is for?

When does this 2 for $19.99 Simpsons Vudu sale end? Do people think it's possible they will be cheaper if we wait for a future sale somewhere? These will never be available via D2D for less than $10 per season?

Normally I'd rather own physical discs than digital streaming (solely because digital can be taken away if the rights expire in a few years or Vudu closes down (in spite of Walmart backing it just like Target Ticket closed down)). I don't feel like I can trust that these will all be available on Vudu in 5-20 years so I don't really "own" them. They are mine until Vudu or Fox feels like taking them away in X number of years and not giving me a refund.

However, it appears Fox is never going to release any more Blurays or DVDs of seasons 18-19 and 21-28 considering I can't find any release/preorder info on Amazon. It's weird if the TV show is popular enough never to be cancelled that it isn't popular enough to release the remaining seasons. I admit I stopped watching 5-10 years ago because they ran out of ideas and became nothing but pop culture or political parodies or "Homer becomes a ______" (fill in the job title) solely so the creators could make fun of something they don't like.

If I ever want to see the later seasons of Simpsons, it appears digital is the only way on planet earth to get these. Is this correct? Do any foreign sites sell region free discs of the unreleased seasons in the US?

I hate to spend $100 for seasons 18-19 and 21-28 on Vudu not knowing these are mine for as long as I live, but this may be one of those rare times where it's either this or nothing. If the option existed to buy these on BD or even inferior DVD for $20 each, I'd take that over digital. Any advice?

Sorry for all the questions. TIA.

If you don't want to purchase And you have the FX channels on cable (I have Xfinity so not sure if it's all cable providers) you can watch these episodes on FXNOW. You can download the app onto your smartphone, tablet or Xbox one. You just need your login credentials for your cable. They're under Simpsons world. It's a pretty cool layout. You can play random episodes or the ones you want.

Thanks. They are probably available on Hulu too, but I don't subscribe to anything besides Netflix and Amazon Prime. I don't have cable or satellite.

I'd probably buy these at $10 each if I could be convinced that Vudu/Walmart/Fox will not pull the plug on these in my lifetime, but I doubt anyone knows that. I use Target Ticket as a good example how you can't trust any service not to shut down. I use Netflix as a good example how any streaming material cannot be counted on to be there 1-2 years later. I don't know what Netflix's movie turnover rate is, but it must be very high. Neither they nor Amazon Prime are a stable catalog of good movies to watch but an ever-changing small random snapshot of what's available out there. I had FandangoNow yank rentals out of my account before I watched them in 30 days because the rights expired. If Vudu wanted to help sales, they might share some of their secret info like how long their Simpsons rights agreement is.

I've heard the old excuses before about companies yanking digital content:
Statement: "You've had it for ___ years so you've gotten your fair share use out of it and aren't entitled to a refund."
Reality: I have lots of stuff I never have watched or played or used, so simply having access to it for many years does not mean I got my "fair share" use out of it. The point of buying something is to have it available always rather than just while the company feels like allowing me.

Statement: "These are old _____ (movies, games). Nobody cares about old stuff any more. Get over losing your digital content and move from the past into the present."
Reality: Lots of old stuff is good, and in fact lots of old movies and games are better than some current ones. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's bad or it's OK to be taken away.

Walmart isn't going anywhere. That being said, Vudu being owned by Walmart pretty much guarantees it's not going anywhere. Walmart has even stopped promoting it with all those free Vudu credit stickers. Seems they must be flourishing to not offer freebies.
Digital has become all the rage, it's become so popular that digital movies are being released up to a month earlier than physical. Even digital video game sales are growing. Some low end movies are being released on digital same time they enter theaters. I won't be surprised if higher end movies end up releasing same time as theaters in the future.
Lastly, there have been plenty of movies that the rights expired and they were removed from being sold, but those that already bought them get to keep them. I can't think of any, but it seems they aren't able to revoke you viewing it, if you bought it's there for you forever.
Lastly, Vudu is just another part of UltraViolet. It's them that we should be worried about, but I don't think there is any worry because UV was created in response to iTunes(competition). And at first movies companies fought against UV (Disney) but even they folded and do UV now.

I know Walmart isn't going anywhere, but Vudu could. Target isn't going anywhere, but Target Ticket disappeared because they didn't feel like maintaining it. Did people lose their movies who bought at Target Ticket or did the UV locker work? I don't know.

The part I bolded would be perfectly fine, i.e. stopping new sales but keeping the movies for people who already bought them. The problem is neither Walmart nor any of the other streaming companies make any sort of promises like that in their FAQ. If Walmart/Vudu simply said if the rights expire, you will either receive a refund or they will renew the rights in a reasonable amount of time so that you don't have to worry about losing anything in one's library, that would work for me. I frankly think all streaming sites should make a 25 year promise at a minimum for all digital movies/games owned, but they won't do that. Then I would feel more comfortable spending a lot on digital.

Thanks for the input though. I'm still contemplating this expenditure. It would help me immensely if anyone knows when this Vudu 2 for $19.99 Simpsons deal is supposed to end.

One of the shows that was removed from VUDU but if you bought you can still watch is King if the Hill. I bought some of the seasons they are still in my library.

Unfortunately there is no date range for Vudu sales, I've looked cause recently all things Stargate went on sale, I couldn't find a date range to think about it, so I bought all of them that day.
And in case you missed it in my other post, there are things that the rights to them ended but they are still watchable by everyone who bought them. Imagine one of these movies companies selling you these goods digitally and then taking it away, guarantee you there would be a fiasco of epic proportions, they would essentially be stealing from you, lawsuit would be inevitable and so no chance it would happen.
Target Ticket closed down because it couldn't compete with Vudu.

Out of curiosity, do you remember how much King of the Hill seasons were on Vudu when you bought them? I'm curious if TV seasons (like the Simpsons or King of the Hill) ever get cheaper than $10 each?

Thanks for the comments. What happened to movies people bought to own on Target Ticket? Did they get a refund or they got transferred to UV and then to Vudu?

I still can imagine large companies taking away the rights to anything because both Microsoft and Sony issued statements when the PS4 and Xbone were announced that they would continue to support PS3 and X360 digital games on their networks for several (at least 3) years. So far we're past 3 years and they haven't dropped most old games from their servers (some do get delisted though), but the fact they would even mention this tells me in the board rooms they have bounced around the idea of simply pulling the plug on PS3 and X360 games someday because they take up "too much server space" and "not enough people care about old games any more". I don't look forward to my "owned" PSN and XBL library of games, man yof which I've never played suddenly disappearing someday. Same thing could happen with Vudu or anyone.

These are some scary things that are rarely discussed such as taking away digital movies and games people own. It's very similar to how there is an actual bill written many years ago sitting in committee in Congress that would forcibly confiscate every penny of every person's IRA and 401K and put it into the "social security fund" (which is a big IOU and not a fund) with a guaranteed yearly return of around 3%. It has never made it out of committee and pray it never does because if that happens anyone with a retirement account will never see their money back let alone 3%. Yet the fact the bill exists tells us we should be worried about this possibility because some people there clearly want to steal the largest pile of cash from citizens that exists before they bankrupt us with debt and creating money out of thin air. It used to be called printing money but nowadays they don't even print it. They just create billions out of thin air on a Fed computer and call it a good thing.

The point is trust is really hard to come by, especially with large companies or the govt to whom money comes first ahead of obligations or principles. Right now my Vudu library is mostly from free credits. I'd love to own all the remaining Simpsons for $10 per season, but it's hard for me to trust any company or entity. Just my opinion.

As far as I know anything bought on any of these services transfers to UV and thus transfers to all other linked services. I've received movies via target ticket and they are still on Vudu from the link.
Also, I've never seen any season of any TV show below $10. All seasons of all the Stargate shows were just $10 each and I could not pass that up. So if you really want it, buy it now.
