Vudu Version 1.5 Update Lets You Extend Expired Movies (Every Video Service Needs This)

Illustration for article titled Vudu Version 1.5 Update Lets You Extend Expired Movies (Every Video Service Needs This)

Vudu has just been bumped to version 1.5, and the headlining feature should make its way to every video rental setup: Extensions! If you only get halfway through No Country for Old Men (or any other flick) before the 24-hour window is up, you can extend the rental period for a discounted price, $2 off HD movies and a buck off regular ones. The option is available for a week after the flick expires, and then you have another 30 days to start watching, and 24-48 hours after you hit play. Downside is you can only extend a movie once. Still, awesome and overdue feature. [Vudu]

i was about halfway through a rental on my appletv, and it just kept on playing. when i was done, though, it popped up a notice saying that the rental was expired, and that it would be deleted immediately if I exited.

so the extensions for in-progress movies are meh.

but if I could re-watch it for a discount, that would be a nice option to have
