Now that I have had my talk with the Disney people and gotten over 25 of my Disney movies ported over to Vudu or UltraViolet, I was wondering how many others out there are using the cloud for their movie collection?
I really like how easy it is to get a movie collection started and the fact that Disney has joined the modern day technology with options for iTunes or UltraViolet, it is amazing how fast my cloud collection is growing.
My insurance man said that it is a good way to save all of your most liked movies, in case of a major disaster such as a fire, flood or tornado. You might lose your physical collection, but you will never lose your movie collection in the cloud.
I am almost at the 400 mark and am really loving how inexpensive it is to get my older movies on the cloud. I have been taking them in to Walmart's Photo Shop several days a week and getting them loaded into the cloud for just $2 each. The cloud accepts either DVD SD or Blu-ray HD for the same price, unless you want to upgrade your DVD's to HD, then it is $4 per disc.
As a member of Vudu, you will get notifications of early digital releases of movies that can be purchased on-line for as low as $14.99. I like that you can classify your movies into Action, Westerns, Disney, Bond, and family films, and much more.
This also allows you to watch your movies on your 'smart' phone, iPad, and most other devices, along with your desktop computer, laptop computer and television.
Vudu also has a selection with a cover title "NOT on Netflix" that has exclusive films to Vudu for the movie lover in you. Vudu also doesn't have that 'waiting time' of four to six weeks. They get all the new releases up to four weeks in advance, that are available for purchase and watching. I have had "Captain America The Winter Soldier" for almost a week now and it only cost me $22.00 to capture it into my cloud collection. This week I am adding the 2-movie Blu-ray/DVD Combo of "Adventures of Ichabod & Mr. Toad/Fun and Fancy Free" for only $19.99.
Let's discuss the pros and cons of Vudu and UltraViolet along with the other clouds such as Flixster and iTunes (which I really don't like).
