You can watch the latest big-name releases on the same day they come out DVD at Vudu. Vudu delivers movies and TV to an array of devices with pay-as-you-go pricing (a la iTunes and Amazon). Pricing is determined by how new a movie is and the quality you want to stream it in (the higher the resolution, the more you pay). Expect to spend up to about $6 to rent the latest blockbusters at the highest quality. Although its pricing isn't particularly different from Amazon.com or iTunes, Vudu does sometimes offer content the competition doesn't. If you don't like the other big streaming sites, or they don't have what you're looking for, Vudu is a solid alternative.
