New Releases This Week: Harry Potter 7, Country Strong, and More!

This week sees the release of 3 new titles available to view from the comfort of your own home!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 – Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the Horcruxes–the keys to Voldemort’s immortality. On their own, without the guidance or protection of their professors, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart. Meanwhile, the Wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale–the legend of the Deathly Hallows. Available beginning April 15 to own, or rent in SD, HD, and HDX 28-days before Netflix!

Country Strong – Soon after a rising young singer-songwriter (Garrett Hedlund) gets involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star (Gwyneth Paltrow), the pair embark on a career resurrection tour helmed by her husband/manager (Tim McGraw) and featuring a beauty queen-turned-singer (Leighton Meester). Between concerts, romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all. Available beginning April 12 to own and rent in SD, HD, and HDX!

The LXD: The Secrets of the Ra – This season, Dance goes evil. From creator, Jon M. Chu (STEP UP 3D), the epic saga charges forward with THE LXD: SECRETS OF THE RA as the forces of good and evil go head to head towards an explosive showdown and true heroes are revealed. Trevor Drift (Luis “Bboy Luigi” Rosado) will understand the sacrifice necessary to fulfill a family legacy, the Dark Doctor’s (John “Jrock” Nelson) shocking past reveals the motives behind his madness, and a powerful new villain, The Wave (Ricardo “Frantick” Rodriguez, Jr.) unleashes the might of Organization X. Each new chapter delves further into the LXD mythology as the mystery continues to unfold. Featuring all your favorite heroes from Season One including Sp3cimen (Chadd “Madd Chadd” Smith), Elliot Hoo (Glee’s Harry Shum, Jr.), and Ninjato (Galen Hooks) as they redefine what it means to be extraordinary.

    We ordered the new Harry Potter movie in HDX the day it was available on Vudu. We have watched a few movies on Vudu with no problems. This was our first time using HDX.We did two network speed tests for Vudu from our blu ray player to test our connection, prior to renting the movie. Both tests said Vudu recommends HDX. We were hardly able to view much if any of the movie in HDX. Plus, the HD and SD that we ‘tried’ to watch instead, was constantly reloading and we got a screen popping up telling us Vudu was experiencing network problems and to try again later. We tried to get through the movie over the next 24 hours, but with the constant rebuffering, having to wait and downgrading to HD and SD, there were to many interruptions to enjoy the movie. In between the Harry Potter movie, we were able to stream Netflix (in HD) with no problems. I contacted Vudu, explained the situation and asked for a refund. After providing Vudu with the speed test results and trace route they requested, and asking when I could exspect a refund..they sent me another email asking for the same information I already provided them with so they could “esalate me to the next level of support.” Seriously? To bad they have to make it so difficult to issue refunds. Vudu used to be our first choice for watching new movies. I think I will have better luck with CinemaNow-less money and better customer service.

    Vudu has Part 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but not Part 1. Why?

    Michael — From time-to-time, movies that are on the VUDU service are removed by the studio when they are playing on other premium subscription channels (i.e. HBO). “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” was on the VUDU service when it first came to DVD but has been removed for the time being. The movie should be available again on VUDU once it is back in window.
