Many of us have spent a lot of time and money on building our movie libraries. It hasn’t been long since those libraries consisted of hundreds of DVDs. It’s much easier to build a digital library now but many of us are still with countless physical copies. Vudu has come up with a way to let you save all of those titles in a digital library. Its new Disc-to-Digital feature will convert your physical DVDs into digital copies at a price.
Vudu’s Disc-to-Digital feature can be accessed via its Android and iOS apps. It’s very simple to use as well. All you need to do is scan the barcode on the case of a DVD or Blu-ray movie and it will provide you with a digital copy for $2 per movie.
This will be in standard definition quality so those who would like to add those movies to their digital library in HD quality will have to pay $5 per title. This is still beneficial for users as it’s cheaper than having to buy a new digital copy on its own.
HD quality digital copies can often cost more than $5 so even if they pay that to Vudu, they’re getting a good deal. All digital copies are instantly made available in the user’s library which they can then access from anywhere in the world.
Vudu has said that it’s currently providing this feature for more than 8,000 movies from major studios like Paramount, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal and Warner Bros. Walmart, which owns Vudu, has said that the library is going to be expanded over time.
