Over the 'Internet'?  Why do you think  http://www.vudu.com/  tells me I need 4.5Mbpps?

"Required Internet Speed:
Customers should have at least a 1 Mbps broadband internet connection in order to enjoy the VUDU streaming service.
With faster broadband connections, customers can enjoy VUDU's 720p HD and industry leading 1080p HDX format.
Minimum requirements for the VUDU streaming service are as follows:
SD (480p) requires 1 Mbps
HD (720p) requires 2.25 Mbps
HDX (1080p) requires 4.5 Mbps"
