VUDU: Coming to a Chromecast Near You

Jchang | March 2, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments (56)

You asked. We listened. And it’s coming soon.

Today you can use VUDU to instantly watch over a hundred thousand movies and TV shows just about anytime and anywhere. We’re on hundreds of devices, from smart TVs to smart phones, and support both PCs and Macs. Soon, watching will be even easier with VUDU on Chromecast.

A Google Chromecast device lets you ‘cast’ video streamed from VUDU on your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac directly to a television. No smart TV, DVD/Blu-ray player, game console or set-top box needed. While casting, you can use your device as a remote control or even a ‘second screen’, which means you multi-taskers can continue doing the ten other things you usually do while watching that TV episode.

VUDU on Chromecast will be launching soon, so check back often. VUDU on Chromecast will be available with the updated Android and iOS apps, as well as through the Chrome browser for PC and Mac.

In the meantime, you can still enjoy the latest movies and TV shows through the website or through our apps for Android and iOS devices. If you’re interested in being a beta tester for VUDU on Chromecast, register here. Please note the beta testing site is separate from the service and will require a new sign up.

    As a VUDU fan and supporter, I would like to participate as a beta tester for VUDU on the Google Chromecast device. This would no doubt enable me enable me to even further expand my collection.

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Can’t wait! VUDU is by far my favorite UltraViolet retailer. Now, if Disney ever turns around and joins UltraViolet, everything will be perfect!

  20. Comment by Anthony MendezMarch 4, 2014 at 4:51 am  

    Thank you! It’s been a long time coming, but I’m glad to read this, because it also indicates a growth for Chromecast and Android in general. ‘Can’t wait!

    I hope they will show content in HDX format with DD+ audio through the chromecast.

    Great News, can hardly wait!

  23. Comment by Mark — March 4, 2014 at 3:00 pm  

    FINALLY. This will be nice considering the connected device limit is so low

  24. Comment by John — March 4, 2014 at 3:29 pm  

    Meh, I prefer the Roku 3. But still love VUDU!

  25. Comment by Thomas Maxwell — March 4, 2014 at 6:32 pm  

    The signup for beta testing doesn’t work. I put my user name and password in correctly but form says I didn’t. Whats up?

  26. Comment by Jared — March 4, 2014 at 7:47 pm  

    Sounds awesome

  27. Comment by Lee Bartholomew — March 4, 2014 at 8:57 pm  

    and thats why I keep buying movies on disc to digital 🙂 although some Blu Rays come up SD, hopefully that’ll be fixed soon. Says HDX but ends up SD. But I have way more Vudu movies than anything else (or Ultraviolet) We have one for the living room dad didn’t want it since it didn’t play Vudu so he tossed it (silly person ) so I put it up in the living room.. if one can afford Roku fine but out of my price range

    The beta testing site is completely separate from the VUDU service. You will need to create a new username and password.

    Attempting to sign up, but receiving invalid password error?

  37. Comment by Jchang — March 7, 2014 at 8:55 am  

    Remember the beta testing site is completely separate from the VUDU service. Unless you previously signed up for beta testing, you will need to create a new username and password.

    So glad to hear this. There are so many times where I just want to chromecast from my android but can’t unless it’s youtube. Ridiculous that Chrome on android doesn’t support Chromecast, but on the PC it does. Why would I want to turn on a power hungry PC or PS3/4 to just chromecast? This will make things so much easier for us Vudu customers. 🙂

  39. Comment by Luis Cruz — March 11, 2014 at 1:29 pm  

    Finally, I’m happy! Thanks a lot guys…

  40. Comment by Russell Dull — March 13, 2014 at 8:32 pm  

    Hurry up already. I bought a chromecast for vudu only to find that it wasn’t supported.

  41. Comment by Nathan — March 16, 2014 at 9:58 am
