While most of the world is talking about Vudu’s new higher definition HDX content (which I haven’t tested) today, what got my attention is the $200 movie credit being run in conjunction with Best Buy’s nationwide rollout. Purchase a $295 Vudu box via BestBuy.com or a brick & mortar location by the end of the year and receive $200 of content. While their HD library has lagged the competition in the past, the Vudu box provides a superior movie experience over a Xbox 360 or AppleTV. If you can consume $200 worth of content in four months, $95 for Vudu is an excellent deal. Two possible gotchas:
- If BX100 is returned to Best Buy for refund or credit, CUSTOMER’S CREDIT CARD WILL BE CHARGED FOR PORTION OF MOVIE CREDIT THAT HAS BEEN USED.
- Movie Credit may not be applied towards any content on the AVN Adult Channel.
