Vudu

ACTION REQUIRED - Complete your account setup to get started.

I got two of these emails today and one a couple of weeks ago. On the rare occasion I want to watch something, I can log in to my daughter's Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime Video accounts, so I don't remember ever looking into Vudu. Of course that doesn't mean I didn't...just that I don't remember. Are these services cold-soliciting now or is it a scam or could it be that I actually started a signup process? From what I can tell it's a legit service from Walmart. Any thoughts on it?

scam X 10.

If you really want to know, just look at the senders email.

Thanks.

Well, looking at the original headers, they do seem to be coming from email.vudu.com, and there's an option to ask questions at support.vudu.com. So even though it appears to be legit, I don't care enough about the service to bother.

I got two of those some time back and I've never had a VUDU account, though I've thought about it.

Did you ever register any digital movies through UltraViolet? Vudu is one of two providers that you can move those digital download rights to. This might have been the source of the email contact, UltraViolet is shutting down at the end of July this year.

Ahhh...and therein seems to lie the answer. I did register at UltraViolet a couple of years ago because my daughter had some dvds that had that little "bonus", and I figured it was a way for me to watch them. Thanks!
