The rental schedule varies by studio policy, which is out of Vudu's control. For example, Hellboy 2 was available for purchase today (actually was available this morning for instant viewing at 12:01 am PST), but Universal delays the rental window 30 days. On December 11 you will be able to rent Hellboy 2 on the Vudu. Most studios enforce the same 30 day delay for VOD rentals - I think Warner Bros. is the exception, with same day rental as DVD release.
This seldom bothers you when you get used to having almost 12,000 titles at your fingertips for instant viewing - there's tons of good stuff to watch right now, so I don't let the studios arbitrary release dates concern me.
