Vudu drops online rental price to '$2 for 2 nights,' pushing Netflix, iTunes

Can you say price war? Vudu can. The online movie rental site, bought by Walmart in February, today dropped the fee for about 4,000 of its "top films" to $2 for a 48-hour rental window.

The new price--which is good until the end of the year--is well below the price for Amazon.com and iTunes. Movies can be streamed over connected TVs and Blu-ray players or on the Vudu Box.
