VUDU Brings Out 1st Ever Digital Movie Card

Today VUDU announced an exclusive digital movie card with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Battle: Los Angeles. The digital movie card is available today at nationwide Walmart stores, the same day as the Blu-ray/DVD release.


The Battle: Los Angeles digital movie cards are available in standard definition and will be sold for $14.96 in the entertainment area at Walmart stores. Customers simply purchase the card and then use the provided code to access BATTLE: LOS ANGELES directly from the browser on their computers or from their VUDU-enabled CE devices. Battle: Los Angeles can also be purchased today directly from VUDU.



For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world — Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, and China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw  a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before. BATTLE: LOS ANGELES was written by Chris Bertolini (The General’s Daughter) and produced by Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur (The Green Hornet, The Bounty Hunter). Executive producers are Jeffrey Chernov (upcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Star Trek) and David Greenblatt. It was distributed by Columbia Pictures and has a run time of approximately 116 minutes. It has been rated PG-13 for sustained and intense sequences of war violence and destruction, and for language.

    How is this any better than just simply logging into vudu from my PS3 and buying the movie there?

    Travis — Customers who purchase this Digital Movie Card will be purchasing it in-stores, not online. This card allows the customer the option to give it as a gift card to someone or redeem the movie on VUDU for less than buying a copy of the movie in-store on DVD ($16.96 at Walmart).

    Based on your Internet speed…vudu is as good as your connection. Plus it was only SD not HD.

    This was a horrid purchase…. Since we don’t have 3.0 DSL, the buffering goes on and on and on…. I wasted my money. I could have purchased the movie on iTunes…. Should have….. My bad!

    As a longtime user of the VUDU service, this new way to purchase movies is intriguing….I purchase all my films online, but this makes another avenue available to get the word out…..As to Pat’s issue, I can see a consumer making a mistake….Is there info on the card that states the required speeds for proper playback? If so, then it’s buyer beware….

    Why buy a virtual copy of a movie? A disc will play without relying on a network connection. I can lend out a disc to a family member or friend. I can make backups of a disc. Are these movies download to your device? If not, will I still have access to movies I purchased through Vudu if the company one day decides to terminates the service?

    It just make more sense for someone to purchase a physical disc with an attractive case. For me, anyway.
