Vudu Disc to Digital is now in our mobile apps

Mobile Disc to Digital is now available! Convert your DVDs from our app!

Get your discs into the cloud easily. No magic needed.

 

I am excited to announce that our Disc to Digital service is now available in our mobile apps – making converting your discs to digital movies easier and more convenient than ever. Impossible, you say? Never, we say.

 

That’s right, starting today, you can convert your Blu-ray and DVD discs to digital movies right from your compatible phone. Convert your entire collection, whether it’s 10 discs or 100, for a nominal cost and a few clicks – only $2 for DVD to SD and Blu-ray to HDX, or just $5 to upgrade from DVD to HDX.

 

You’ve spent a lot of time and effort building your collection, and Mobile Disc to Digital gives you the opportunity to enjoy all the adventure, awe, inspiration, and feels from you Blu-ray and DVD discs with all the added benefits that digital movies have to offer.

 

Going digital lets you watch your movies anytime, anywhere, download your titles for offline viewing on your mobile device, and never worry about scratching those discs again! It’s pretty much the coolest technological advancement since putting a giant “laser” on the moon – you know, The Alan Parsons Project.

 

Convert with a click

 

Using Mobile Disc to Digital is as easy and familiar as taking pictures of your food, if by food you mean the UPC on your Blu-ray or DVD cover. That’s pretty much it – scan the UPC, choose a resolution for conversion, and then watch your new digital movie. Ta-da! It’s not complicated. It’s Vudu.

 

With Mobile Disc to Digital, you’ll have access to our entire Disc to Digital library at launch – that’s about 8,000 movies. So round up your collection and scan away right in-app.

 

There are a couple of things the app will need permission for including your camera and GPS, as well as making sure your billing info is up-to-date in your profile, but the app will guide you through everything.

 

So now you have two ways to conveniently convert your physical disc collection in the comfort of your own home, with our new Mobile Disc to Digital option on both our Android and iOS apps, or on your home computer or laptop by scanning your disc with our existing Vudu To Go app.

 

To get Mobile Disc to Digital, simply update or get the latest Vudu app in Google Play or the iTunes App store. You can also get more information or links to our apps, here.
