Re: Vudu free stuff is better than the Roku channel

And what?  Not sure what you are getting at.  Are you saying a company that is owned by the second largest retailer in the United States that has been doing streaming video for years and has multiple other revenue streams to subsidize the cost of the stream has less ads than a company that just got into the streaming service market?  Sure, hats off to you for figuring that one out.

You might want to study the concept of a "loss leader". Vudu free content is their way of keeping you on their platform where they can consistently remind you of their paid/premium content.

I know what you guys are saying, but they shouldn't promote their channel as having the least amount of ads
