Kristie Bertucci is an L.A.-based writer, who can't live without her MacBook Pro. When she's not writing, she's either reading or shopping (online, of course) and loves lazy days so she can catch up on her DVR-recorded shows and movies. She's definitely a Mac girl, she loves music and is currently on a mission to to have an insane and enviable iTunes library.

7 Comments to iTunes vs. VUDU (comparison)

  1. I actually use both. With iTunes, the picture quality is slightly higher with an Apple TV and some even offer the same bonus features as their Blu-ray/DVD counterparts, but I can get better quality digital copies with Vudu (for a little extra). Also, one just may have a movie that the other doesn’t. Since they’re both free in terms of membership, I’d say you wouldn’t go wrong using both.

  2. Michael tristan

    Inherently flawed reasearch and especially flawed writing EXAMPLE:
    “Winner: VUDU has a lot of titles, but iTunes takes the cake with their whopping 75,000 digital downloads.”

    iTunes wins this but either poor writing or a clear bias makes Vudu appear to win this… This is so ridiculous, ill stop here..

    A technologically advanced back end will never overcome a lack of content.

  3. I have used itunes to purchase movies and redeem digital copies for years and I prefer vudu by a long shot now. For starters if you buy a blu ray disk that includes a digital copy shouldn’t that digital copy also be in HD? Well most of the itunes digital copies are SD with no option to upgrade to HD. I alzo love the disk to digital service offered by uv/vudu. For renting movies I love it because most new titles are available the they are released on dvd and they are all available in HD. I wish i could transfer all of my itunes purchases to uv/vudu.

    Wow, I have both and while your article is extensive it is heavily biased. The title should be renamed to why you like VUDU. As an example of proof, you list VUDU as being compatible with more devices but don’t go into to many details then towards the end you mention it’s not compatible with Android. Seems kinda left out of your scoring. Also I didn’t notice any mention that VUDU really doesn’t work well on iOS devices. Checkout the reviews of their app for yourself. That being said I own more on iTunes I own more yet I’ve watched more rentals on VUDU. They are almost apples and oranges but I still prefer buying Blu-rays and renting from Blockbuster.

  5. Thanks Kristie. Trying to work thru the maze of offerings is tough. This was pretty darn good.

    You are soft on the eyes and thats only a plus.

    Appreciate your commentary and homework.
