    Why did they want to start a new streaming service when they apparently already owned VUDU?

    Now that I think about, it would make lots of sense for Apple to buy VUDU, because this would make them a true contender. I have checked out VUDU's movie list, and they have got so many amazing movies you can't find on Netflix. And not to forget, Apple has got 100 billion dollar on the bank, so paying for these licenses should be no problem. I would be willing to pay 10 to 15 bucks per month to get access to VUDU Free, but without the ads of course.
