people whining about instawatch knew the risk. They got 4k movies for 3 bucks. Consider it a rental and a wash because they should have shut down those scams long ago.
Yeah, I agree with you. Those that scammed the system knew exactly what they were doing they jumped at the chance to get something for less and felt like they were entitled to keep them knowing what they did was wrong.

Just like MP3 stealing back in the day NAPSTER and other file sharing software like Limewire. with a click of a button on the mouse they were able to download millions of songs being shared across the internet.

Then when the Digital Police started cracking down on individuals people felt that was invasion of their privacy and cried foul. How dare you spy on what I'm stealing they said.

They crippled the music industry for years.

For every con job there is a con-firmed fix. Walmart did what they needed to do. Vudu being owned by Wal-mart had to plug a hole at the bottom of a sinking ship.

Those that say they lost all their IW movies... well guess what... bet you wished you held on to your physical copies. 3rd Party Digital is never SAFE. You want to be 100% Safe buy the movie and rip them to your own hard drive. Every Cloud Service will be hacked, Sold or discontinued at some time. It's inevitable. NOTHING LAST FOREVER.

If you're a big fan of Jaws I'd suggest holding out for the 45th anniversary edition Blu ray in 4K. Good review here:

Damn, harsh reality lesson, but you are 100% correct.

I imagine there is a statute of limitations for most things. Not that it makes it right, but that for some, it was long ago when the instawatch was redeemed. I, myself, didn't cry foul. I did however, say that it left a bad taste in my mouth.

I like how you point out that Walmart did what they needed to do. I agree completely, but it was a little too late. They should have had everything straight before they made the sale. They put lipstick on a pig and realized they needed to try and fix what they had ignored for so long. That's like selling a house and quickly trying to repair the foundation after it's sold but before inspection. If it was truly a sinking ship, you'd think they would have repaired it long ago. They obviously had the means, unless they just came up with a way after they sold Vudu. I think that would be highly coincidental though.

Also, thank you for being a good human being and never doing anything that's "wrong". Why don't you go ahead and shame me for the cable service I didn't pay for a decade ago. I deserve it. Here's some additional info to go off of. I moved into an apartment and the cable was still working. I plugged my tv up to it and it ran for months.

P.S. Well guess what (your words, I just decided to reuse them so I could sound matter-of-fact too), I'll take that bet, because I never got rid of my physical copies. And if NOTHING LASTS FOREVER, does that include the physical copies you are advocating for or are we just contradicting ourselves? You aren't even 100% SAFE buying a movie and ripping it. I suppose you've considered natural disasters? I mean, if there is a flood or fire, my hard drive probably isn't 100% safe. Certainly not if there was a tornado.

You didn't pay for cable because you didn't order cable.. That's not stealing. So not sure why you chose to use that example.

MOST movies you purchased with IW also had UV codes included inside with the disc.

Had you kept the disc you would have had the code. IW Vudu gave you access to download the movie before your order was shipped.

Most people who took advantage of this scam, purchased the movies , redeemed the IW code and then returned the unopened movie back for full credit.

Even if you did keep the disc and no code was provided Vudu has a 2.00 Disc to Digital service which is still available today.

As for physical vs digital : Life happens and Life ends at some point. Worrying about disasters , theft or damage... is a moot point. Why worry about the What if ?

Simply put.. If stranger owed you 200.00 dollars would you want CASH or Check ?

I'd bet the majority of people would say CASH because ..... that is the safer option.

I also didn't pay for cable or order cable if I split the neighbors with myself, so I'm not sure why you explained it that way, but thank you for letting me know I didn't steal anything! Will you call the cable company and tell them the same?! Thanks. I'll pay your retainer fee.

Here is some additional information below that may help us out in our legal battle; however, please don't mention passive theft while on the phone with them or they might have a leg to stand on. Of course, you're the professional here, so use your best judgement.

There are two types of cable theft, passive and active. An example of passive theft is when a potential customer moves into a home, finds the cable service is on, but does not notify the cable company. Active theft occurs when someone knowingly and willfully makes an illegal physical connection to the cable system and/or attaches or tampers with equipment to allow the receipt of unauthorized services.

Actually, since it was a decade ago, let's let sleeping dogs lie, but I bet you could help some other folks out.

It's kind of interesting that you don't believe it's theft or stealing using cable that was left hooked up by the last resident, but do believe it's stealing if you bought an IW from a reseller. Is it because of the terms? I'm almost certain I can find something in the cable contract where it's mentioned. Are you now going to say that I never received the terms for cable, so it's okay? Well, I never received the terms for IW either. I suppose both could be sought out though. It doesn't appear to be an issue of morality with you, so what's the difference? Is it because I paid for IW? So... buying a movie with a Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital code, then splitting with friends, that's stealing? Probably so, but it's not all that bad. As you said, maybe a majority of the resellers got the IW, resold it, then never picked up the movie or returned it, but not every single one. Those IW's were purged too, the ones that people split with friends and family.

Did you redeem the digital code after you already had the movie in your library from the IW? The people who redeemed the IW in their library and resold the digital code that came with the physical copy, is that legit?

I'm not worrying about any "what-if's", I was simply pointing out that the mention of physical copies being 100% safe was untrue and provided some examples. Additionally, I'm unsure why you choose to capitalize some words and not others. Is it to make them stand out or when reading it, should I be yelling when I get to them?

Decade of 2010: Most physical Blurays with full DTS HD soundtracks and extras were $5-$6 in numerous dump bins or Black Friday sales.
I mean, that's still the case, you just have to wait for Black Friday.

Every year the number of $3.96/$3.99 (Walmart/Best Buy) and $5.96/$5.99 Blurays gets smaller on BF. It went from entire display boxes full of those to maybe a dozen titles priced that way at each store, and lately they repeat several movies from prior BFs.

With COVID19 I'm not confident there will be a BF with physical media in stores. Even if Walmart.com puts everything online at BF prices (which they have never done), everything good will go OOS in a matter of minutes. That's based on past years when Walmart.com used to put some of their deals online. The website slowed to a crawl and then everything good went OOS.

So I'm not confident this BF will have many physical Blurays under $6. They will have some online, but I expect it to be far less than last year.
