Apparently you can now connect your UltraViolet collection to Verizon, accessing your digital streaming collection through On-Demand. I will let someone else be the guinea pig on that one.
The Ultimate HD package is definitely the best deal. At only $70, when included in a bundle, you get much, much more for your money than any of the lower packages.

It all depends if any of the content of the higher packages is worth anything to you.

That sounds like a terrible idea. Not only is Verizon's ON Demand not as good as VUDU quality wise, but what if you switch to another provider? What happens to your collection. That's just a terrible idea all around!

Well, as a mere UV provider I don't think Verizon can mess with your UV collection. I think it has been added primarily to enhance the attractiveness of purchasing On-Demand content that happens to be UV.
