Walmart seeks to unload Vudu: report

Brett Sappington, senior research director and principal analyst at Parks Associates, added that the transactional market for video, Vudu’s core business, has begun eroding as movie studios no longer hold titles away from streaming rights after theatrical release. “Services are starting to buy up the rights for that early window—essentially making it go direct from the theater to streaming,” he said.

But while Walmart’s potential interest in unloading Vudu might be clear, the three analysts weren’t so sure who would want to buy it.
