Subscription-free, video-on-demand movie service VUDU has launched Share My Movies by VUDU – a new feature that allows users easily and safely to share their UltraViolet movies and TV shows.
Share My Movies users can invite up to five people to join and watch their Library of UltraViolet movies and TV shows. “You only need a VUDU account and an UltraViolet Library to start,” the Walmart-owned service advised in a blog post.
“With Share My Movies by VUDU, we are removing the friction you face when you use other services or lend physical discs,” wrote Amit Balan, senior director of VUDU for Walmart in the Walmartlabs blog. “No more worrying about managing passwords and permissions across people and devices or getting discs returned with scratches. More good news: Share My Movies by VUDU applies to all DVDs or Blu-ray movies available at a Walmart stores that come with an UltraViolet digital copy.”
Balan advises users to visit VUDU.com and enter up to five e-mails of family members or friends with whom they would like to share their UltraViolet movies and TV shows. “Each invited person will receive an email with a link to create a VUDU account and connect to your UltraViolet Library.”
