"My Main Library is In Vudu with my UV digital copies plus if I purchase anything, i tend to Keep it in Vudu for ease of having it all in one place."
I used to bash VUDU/UV/Digital copy stuff. Honestly I had only messed with it a little bit for my conclusion. So I went for it looking for a Plex like replacement. Adding a bunch and really using it I changed my mind completely. For how I used Plex and remote access to my movies for family, remote on mobile devices, etc., VUDU is way better and stable. My upload bandwidth is no longer a factor.
Since I always practiced the rule of owning any movies I archived to put on my Plex server I had a ton of digital redemption codes.
VUDU doesn't have the hardware cost, NAS storage and conversion to digital copy need, nor technical variables, Internet access speeds, that are part of the logistics to use. I highly recommend VUDU and on the ROKU it works great. I've used it on my Sony BDP6700. On the ROKU, not the BDP6700, I get Dolby Atmos for some of my HDX streams too despite what some folks think in the Sony X800 forum. Other than the difference in audio options they seem the same to me.
MLB.COM streaming better on the ROKU than the Apple TV or the Sony BDPS6700. MLB.COM is faster and clearer on the ROKU. VUDU seems about the same.
I don't use my ROKU if I want the best of the best sir. I use the disk and my bluray player. IF I had UHD disks and a 4K player I'd follow the same practice. I'd not be trying to get the best of the best sir for UHD/DV/HDR/HD Audio/etc. off any streaming service.
But for general watching, remote viewing, the ROKU and VUDU are perfect.
Someone mentioned Amazon doing Ultraviolet. I'm not sure that can even happen. UV manages digital rights. Someone like VUDU manages the digital copy and our access to it. While similar they are different. I'm thinking apples to apples would be Amazon letting us link our Amazon Prime Library to VUDU like Paramount, Sony, Fox, etc., do. Would love to see that but not counting on it. Bezo needs our money to build his same day delivery pod on the moon.
