By BOB KOLANAssociated PressPublished Mar 04, 2018 08:51AMPARIS, France — French media outlets have been publishing movie titles that are no longer available on the digital video-on-demand (DVR) service Vudu.
The company that sells Vudus has announced that it will no longer offer those titles on its service.
Vuduzas services include Vududu and Vudubus.
The titles will no long be available on Vudueux, which is based in France.
“The company will not sell those movies anymore and Vudauteux will not continue to offer them,” Vuduel said in a statement.
The company did not elaborate on why.
“It’s not just the Vuduvians titles.
It’s also a lot of other French movies,” Vudaubeu said.
French movie makers are not alone in trying to find a way to preserve the VUDU catalogue.
Many films that were once available on other platforms are now available online and in video stores.
The list includes classics like ”The King and I,” ”A Woman Under the Influence,” ”The House of God,” ”All the King’s Men,” ”Hail Caesar!’s” The Godfather,” ”I’m Gonna Be Your Man,’ ”The Virgin Suicides,” ”The Passion of Joan of Arc,’ ” The Lady in Red,” ” The House of Mirth,’ ”Boys Don’t Cry,” ”I Am a Believer,’ ”I Saw Her Standing on Her Shoulders,’ ”And the list goes on,” said Michel Vialet, president of the French Film Federation.
The French film industry has struggled to compete with the growing popularity of digital-video streaming services.
French-language movies have been popular for years on VUDu, which allows users to buy and rent movies.
Vudu has been struggling to retain its users, particularly in France, where it is the second-most-popular platform after Netflix, where users are divided over whether to pay a monthly fee or not.
Vudautex says Vuduaux is the largest and most popular VUDUs site in France with around 30 million users.VUDU has been facing criticism for offering a large number of pirated movies to its users and is being criticized for not providing proper legal notices.
The French government has launched a campaign to fight piracy and the government has said it will try to prevent VUDues future from being impacted.
