They won't lose money because a lot of people who have theaters and use Vudu most likely don't even go to the theater but wait for the release on Vudu or DVD or Blu-Ray to watch home, and those who do, will continue going to the theater. At least I think so based on what I've heard from people like I am.
But one can dream and hope that day will come. At the very least it would be something that would kick theater chains in the behind and force them to provide better experience for movie watching so you would not want to stay home.
The theater chains are offering something better with 3D projectors and IMAX(and IMAX 3D) theaters.
If a movie is available in IMAX I will only see it in the IMAX theater now. It is so much better than the reguar theater.
I haven't seen a 3D film or 3D IMAX film yet, but I know several people who have and they could not stop praising it. They couldn't believe how good the 3D was. Hopefully I'll get a chance to see a 3D film later this year since there are several high profile films being released in 3D this year.
And of course I am using my VUDU boxes more andmore. I just wish they would hurry up and offer an external storage solution. My mainbox is pretty full now so I can only rent one or two titles and I have to wait for the extended viewing period offer to end before I can rent something else.
