Walmart and VUDU Announce New Disc-to-Digital Home Movie Service


At CES this week Walmart and VUDU announced that they will be expanding upon their disc-to-digital service by offering it for home use.  This new service will allow users the ability to rip their Blu-ray/DVD home movie collections to the cloud (UltraViolet) for a nominal fee right from the comfort of your man cave.

For example, if you want your DVD copy of Gigli to be in HD you can use this new Walmart service to rip it to the cloud in the up-scaled format for $5 a pop.  If you just want to rip your Blu-ray/DVD to the cloud it’ll cost $2 a pop.

Outside of Walmart being the Devil, I think this new disc-to-digital service sounds pretty freaking awesome.  It’s a cheap and easy way to backup your purchased content, and it will allow you to access your home movie collection from anywhere on the Internet.  This new service should be available sometime in mid-February.  With that being said how many of you would take advantage of it?  Let us know by using the comment section below.  You’ve been liking the idea of backing up your entire movie collection to the cloud…
