Users can now convert their discs into digital copies by scanning them with their mobile devices.
VUDU has announced the launch of its new Mobile Disc-to-Digital feature. With Disc-to-Digital, customers can now turn their DVDs and Blu-rays into digital versions by simply scanning them through the VUDU mobile app.
"The average movie collector owns nearly 100 DVDs and Blu-rays. We know these customers have invested a lot into building their physical movie collections," said Jeremy Verba, general manager, Vudu. "As more and more customers create digital libraries, we are constantly looking for ways to help them unlock additional value from the movies they already own."
Mobile Disc-to-Digital is compatible with iPhones and Android products and includes support for around 8,000 titles from Lionsgate, Paramount Home Media Distribution, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Customers can convert a DVD to SD or a Blu-ray to HDX for $2. Likewise, users can also convert a DVD to HDX for $5.
Here's a rundown of the how the simple process works:
- Scan: Navigate to Disc-to-Digital in the Vudu app and scan the barcode on the physical disc case.
- Convert: Choose SD or HDX. Submit one title or scan all of your movies before submitting.
- Watch: Watch your movies on any Vudu-enabled device.
In order to use Mobile Disc-to-Digital, customers will need a free UltraViolet account. And as a special promotion, all Vudu users can receive one complimentary first-time mobile conversion.
"Like Walmart, at Vudu we're always striving to save our customers time and money," added Verba. "Our Mobile Disc-to-Digital service is a key part of Vudu's broader effort to make digital entertainment access simple and convenient."
