Today we’re pleased to announce a brand new VUDU experience for the living room. It’s available now on Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, select smart TV and internet-connected DVD/Blu-ray player brands, set-top box devices like Roku, and will roll out to even more throughout the rest of the year. So jump on the couch, fire up the TV and experience the new VUDU today.

The new VUDU is designed to give you more control and make discovering and watching the latest movies and TV at home more intuitive and enjoyable. How? Through a combination of new design, new features, and of course, a continually-growing library of top-tier movies and TV shows.

Faster, Easier Ways to Watch

Now you can quickly find and pick up where you left off with the new Watchlist. Movies and shows you haven’t yet finished watching are listed here, so you can get back to watching faster without having to search through your library.

TV Binge-watcher? When you finish an episode of a TV season, the new VUDU automatically queues up the next episode (if you don’t own it, you get the option to buy it). The episode also appears in your Watchlist, so you’ll never have to scroll through episode descriptions again to figure out where you left off.

New Tools to Explore & Discover

genres

Feel like browsing? The new VUDU gives you several powerful ways to sort, filter and discover the perfect movie.

  • Genres and Subgenres – Browse through every kind of action, comedy or drama imaginable.
  • Filters – Sort and filter by popularity, year, rating, studio and more.
  • Discover Tool – Build a custom compilation of movies and TV from hundreds of categories.

Smarter Search, Better Results

A powerful new search makes it easy to find what you want not just by titles and actors, but also keywords like plot (save the world), mood (offbeat), audience (kids), praise (Oscar winner) and more. As you type, a related search field also lists options, so not only can you skip right to the results, you might also find a new way to search.

First-rate Recommendations

From customized-for-you recommendations to our expertly-curated collections, skip the filler and get quality movies and TV that you actually want to watch. Our new personalization engine finds the best movies and TV shows for you based on what you watch, own, rate and more. If you’re looking for something different, our curated collections will keep you in the loop on the best sales, hottest titles and seasonal specials.

Great news for iPad® users – we’re happy to report that you can now rent, purchase and watch movies from VUDU directly on your tablet!  There’s no need to install an App, just go to vudu.com via your iPad’s browser to navigate our collection of over 20,000 movies, now with the flick of your finger.  To make it easy to get to VUDU quickly, simply add the VUDU icon to your Home Screen, by clicking the “Add to Home Screen” button when you are on vudu.com/movies.

A few things to note:

  • Due to restrictions by content providers, playback is limited to SD quality. However, you can purchase a movie on your iPad for viewing in HD or HDX resolution on your TV.  Just make your purchase at vudu.com then access it from your My VUDU account on your VUDU-enabled device. We will also seamlessly playback movies you’ve purchased in HD or HDX in SD if accessed through your iPad.
  • At this time, some studios have chosen not to permit VUDU to deliver its content on the iPad, including Walt Disney Corporation. You can still browse and purchase this content on VUDU using your iPad, but you will not be able to view it on the iPad device.
