Vudu Goes Version 1.5, Let's You Extend 24-Hour Rental Viewing Limit For A Reduced Price

Vudu_box_headon(2).jpgVudu is rumored to be updating its video rental set-top box to version 1.5 and will supposedly include a new feature that we're surprised no one else has thought of yet. Pretty well all streaming video rental services set their movies to expire after 24 hours, and should you not quite finish the film in that time then you have to rent it for the full price all over again. Inconvenient to say the least. Vudu's 1.5 update will let you extend expired movies past the 24 hour limit for a reduced price. Reduced by how much? $2 off of HD movies and $1 off regular titles. Not bad and you don't even have to act on this deal right away. It's actually available for one week after the rental expires, and should you choose to extend it, you have 30 days to press play. Of course once you press play you're back to 24-48 hours to finish it. And the offer is only good once, so set time aside to watch the movie in its entirety the second time around.
