This post was sponsored by VUDU and The Motherhood. We have been happily using VUDU at home for years so we were delighted to partner with them to spread the word. All opinions and experiences are entirely my own.
We only manage to make it to the movie theater once or twice a year. Not only is it incredibly expensive to take a family of five to the theater, but it's also difficult with kids. The last time we went to the theater, three of my four children had to go the bathroom during the movie. Not fun!
Our favorite way to do movie night is to stay at home. We used to rent movies from RedBox, but after forgetting to return them a few too many times and having to fork out extra money, I banned myself from it. Now, when we want an instantaneous movie, we turn to VUDU. We can buy on-demand movies or rent them, but we don't need a subscription and there are No Late Fees - this was a game changer for me!
Often a movie night at our house is as simple as someone announcing they want to watch a movie and picking something to watch. It's an inexpensive way to get everyone to pile on the couch together for a couple of hours. However, every now and then, I like to step it up a notch and make it a little more memorable. It's still quick and easy to stream a movie on VUDU, but we take the extra time to pop some corn on the stove, break out a treat (everyone's favorite is rootbeer!), and do the sometimes difficult work of getting a unanimous family vote on a movie title to watch.
I'm always surprised at how these simple steps can make something as ordinary as movie night feel so much more special.
Our experience with VUDU
It had been way too long since I bought root beer, so I was excited for the excuse to pick up a few bottles when VUDU asked if we wanted to have a family movie night. With VUDU we had instant access to the new Angry Birds Movie and we didn't have to shell out the big bucks to get everyone into a theater. We accessed VUDU through a blue ray player. We've also used it on our ios mobile devices. VUDU is also easily accessible through gaming consoles, Roku, Chromecast, smart tv's, and android devices.
The quality of the movie was excellent on our HD tv and we had so much fun watching the movie together. We got to do something together as a family without spending a lot of money and without the hassle of having to leave the house with five kids. Watching the latest movies in pajamas is my kind of fun! Not to mention having access to a pause button for all the inevitable bathroom breaks and snack runs.
VUDU for You!
We've enjoyed using VUDU for a couple years now and I highly recommend it to other families and friends! Raising a family can be hard work, but I'm always happy to find easy ways to make it more fun and save a little money too. VUDU fits our budget and I'm always pleased with the selection of movies for both me and the kids.
