I have tried using various devices and still cannot view any movies. I am still waiting to hear from customer service. I just don't understand why this app makes it so difficult to watch movies. There is simply no consistency. Please fix the app. My rental was completely wasted this weekend, I was unable to view the movie.
Looks nice and runs better but please, explain to me how your old version supports MHL cables and your new version doesn't? What is even so hard about integrating that again? It's not like you lose money, the price is the same in the phone app as it is in the TV app. Also 70% of the time if I open a pop-up text it completely crashes the entire app, worse n worse
4-21-17 still doesn't work. Won't play movies tried multiple devices. Emails go unanswered. 4-6-17 still doesn't work after update with so called "player fixes" emails still unanswered. ......4-3-17 Still doesn't work even after update...Emails to the developer only get a standard reply. They don't care as long as they are making money ....Will not play movies on my phone. All other streaming apps work fine. Not sure why Vudu stopped working
Update to review since I said I would when it was fixed. Only giving it a 3 because I had to wait for almost a month for them to fix an error from an update that pretty much caused me to not be able to use the app. I had to find a different source for watching movies but still have to come back to this to use for the ones that I have already set up through here so bumping it to 3 stars since I can at least not watch downloaded movies for now. I use this app daily since I do not have a TV in my room but since the update I can not longer even open it. Same for both my tablet and phone. First day of vacation and ready to watch a movie I have been saving up and I can't even open the app. Talk about a bad time to push an update that I cannot rollback. Very disappointed!
I hate this service because it has never worked well for me. Why do so many studios insist I use this borderline malware rather than Google Play? I would love to be able to use my purchases on a service I actually like and trust but can't for no valid reason
Update 4-23-17: After being unusable since 4/9/17, now it can finally stream movies. Still fails when attempting to download HDX movies (only works for SD). What protocol are these morons using to transfer files? But 2/3rds of a working program is better than the norm for Vudu. Poor design and functionality are nothing new. They have screwed up their software big before, rendering it unusable for weeks... many times. The company should just fire and rehire the entire developer team. Get it working and then stop fiddling with it! Unacceptable incompetence. This software does not work currently. A third of its users give it one star reviews.
