How to Use Movies from iTunes to VUDU
"As you know, I am a big movie fan. I have acquired a lot of DVDs, Blue-rays, iTunes videos and VUDU movies. To make it easier to enjoy movies, I'd like to put all my media files together. I have no problem turn my physical discs movies to my VUDU but I am still struggling to import movies from iTunes to VUDU. Anyone know the magic to do that? I would really appreciate for any help."
VUDU is the streaming video services provided by Walmart. Instead of charging for subscription fee every month like NetFlix, VUDU is more similar to iTunes which offers the option to rent or purchase movies and TV shows at a fixed price. However, you can't move videos from VUDU to iTunes or vice versa.

Part 1. How to Move iTunes Videos to VUDU with Movies Everywhere
The digital movies and TV shows from the main streaming platforms are basically provided by the same studios like Disney, Sony Pictures, Universal, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Bros.
To enable users to stream purchased movies from any streaming services, Hollywood movie studios united to announce a new service Movies Anywhere.

Actually with the iTunes encryption, there is not an official way to movie iTunes movies out of its own system.
