In the mood for a free movie, but having trouble finding/deciding on what free title to watch? (#firstworldproblems) Well, stress no more because now you now have more ways to find free movies & TV shows.
We’ve added the ability to use the search filters to get you to what you want to watch faster. After all, if Instagram and Snap have filters, why shouldn’t we?
To use the filters, start on the Movies page and use the green Filters drop-down menu.
Filter by Free with Ads (under Features), and then add as many additional filters as you want.
And voilà, free movies narrowed down however you want.
Now with great power comes great responsibility, but since this isn’t that kind of power, feel free to use it with reckless abandon.
Get a seamless Disc to Digital experience on iPhone With Our New Web-Based conversion
Now iPhone users can get a more seamless Disc to Digital experience by converting from your iPhone browser at vudu.com/disc.
The process is pretty much the same as before, only you start and end on your iOS browser. Meaning no more waiting for an email, and then clicking on the email to get to your iOS browser. Basically, no more back and forth. Just a seamless, one-stop experience for converting your Blu-ray and DVDs to digital movies. Just look for the Convert Disc button and start converting.
If you’ve used Disc to Digital before, you will still need to enable the same permissions, and everything else should be equally familiar – just easier. If you’re new to Disc to Digital, you can find more detailed instructions below.
Why convert disc to digital?
Converting your Blu-ray and DVD collection to digital makes your movies more accessible with the technology you already have.
Once converted, you can download your movies to your mobile device and watch them without using data, or watch them on any of over 150,000 devices – smart TVs, game consoles, Blu-ray players, streaming devices (Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, etc.), and more – with our Vudu app.
And instead of paying full price for a new digital version, you pay only $2 for the conversion ($5 for converting a DVD to HDX quality).
After all, you have a mobile phone or tablet with you all the time, why not turn it into a movie player?
How do I do it?
Start by heading to vudu.com/disc from your iPhone browser. Then click on the “Convert Now” button.
If you’re not already, you’ll need to sign in. If you don’t have a Vudu account, you can create a free one by signing up.
Tap “Convert Disc” after you’ve enabled the following permissions – camera (to scan the UPC), billing address on file and location (account verification), and UV account (digital copy availability).
Ensure that the UPC is centered and clear, with no glare, shadows, or blurriness, and take the photo.
If the movie is eligible for Disc to Digital conversion, select the quality you want for your digital copy.
Once the movie is added to your cart you can change the conversion quality, convert additional discs, or checkout.
After you confirm your purchase and convert, you’ll receive an on-screen Order Confirmation confirming your conversion has been added to your account. You’ll receive one via email as well.
Now, simply head to My Vudu from your preferred device and watch. Or download it to your mobile device for offline viewing on the go!

For those of you who are wondering, there were a total of 19 hidden V’s. Did you find them all? If not, don’t feel too bad, we did warn you it’d be tough.
If you’re curious to know where they were, here’s a complete recap of all of them all (we’ve even included timestamps). Click on each image to enlarge.
A big round of applause to all of you that watched the video and entered. Keep following this blog and our social media pages – Facebook and Twitter – for more contests and giveaways in the future! Congrats again guys! And be sure to check out the new vudu.com if you haven’t already!

You might need to watch it once or twice – some are easy, but some are a little harder. Some even appear twice. So, keep your eyes peeled because there’s $100 in Vudu credit on the line for ten lucky Vudu fans.
And if you haven’t already, head over to the site and check out all the new features we added to make your experience better than ever.

Enter the contest here, and find the complete rules and a sample “V” here.
We came into 2018 like a wrecking ball, and are happy to announce we’ve already knocked out one of our first resolutions – to give you a brand new web experience.
We’re excited to introduce the redesigned vudu.com, and we think you’re going to like what you see.
We’ve redesigned our site with you in mind – giving you new functionality, an improved user experience, and a smarter search so you can find your favorite movies & TV faster and easier.
Take a close look, you might see $100
Visit our new site; take it for a test spin. Maybe check out our 50¢ rental sale. With over 150 movies you can rent for just 50¢ each, it’s a pretty amazing sale. It’s, like, only the most amazing party favor ever.
Then, look for our new video on the homepage (also below). We hid a bunch of Vudu “V” icons throughout the video, and if you can spot them, you can enter for a chance to win one of ten $100 Vudu credits. Enter here. Complete rules and example, here. And be sure to look closely, there are a few that repeat and a few that are pretty hard to find. Take your best guess and have fun!
Do you see? This is Vudu changing, do you see?
We made a good number of improvements so it may take some exploring to discover them all. Here are the bigger ones:
It’s not a Red Dragon-level change (thankfully), but our new look is the result of a lot of sweating the details and a dedication to ensuring everything you need is where you’d expect it to be. Our new site is designed to deliver an online experience that’s clean, stylish, and intuitive – and more representative of our commitment to giving you our best.
Tab? I can’t give you a tab unless you order something
For Marty McFly, Tab is refreshing. We feel they get in the way of getting you to what you are looking for, so, we, uh, we fixed the “glitch.” (I believe you have my stapler.…)
When you choose a title, you’ll now see renting and buying options, the trailer, and even digital copy redemption front and center. But more importantly, we have eliminated the tabs so information like cast and crew, reviews, and movie details are just a scroll away.
And our redesigned navigation rolls as smooth as Leo DiCaprio. We already mentioned we cut the tabs on movie pages, but we’ve also eliminated the secondary menu tabs that just stacked on top of each other. So, now you can find pretty much everything under Movies, TV, My Vudu, Movies On Us, and Redeem.
Our new search has a very particular set of skills
But unlike Liam Neeson, our smarter search won’t kill anyone. However, it will find what you’re looking for – and give you search suggestions along the way. It even organizes the suggestions by Movies, TV, and People.
Yup, you read that right. Now, you can even search people. Meaning you can search for that one movie that you know Jake Gyllenhaal is in, without having to think, “wait, is it spelled with two a’s, or one?”
There’s a lot of other little changes that you may not even notice off the bat except to think, “hey, this looks pretty sweet.” But as you explore, you’ll find that it’s easier to move around, and everything just looks and works better. Which is our ultimate goal – to give you the best experience possible. After all, you’re why we’re here.
