Walmart and VUDU have joined forces to deliver physical and digital copies of one of the year’s biggest blockbusters for one low price. Starting today, anybody who buys Disney Pixar’s Toy Story 3 Exclusive Special Edition 3 Disc Set on DVD or Blu-Ray at Wal-martgets a digital copy on the VUDU streaming movie service.
Yes, you read that correctly – buy a physical copy at Walmart and the digital copy is included via VUDU. The future of media has officially arrived, and it is awesome!
If your kids want to watch Toy Story 3 but the physical disc is in the minivan — no problem! Just stream the digital copy to your home theater with VUDU. Or, conversely, if you are on the road and need to play the movie but the disc is at your house – also no problem! With your Internet connection, you can stream your VUDU movies directly to your PC or Mac via Boxee’s free media center software. Walmart and VUDU have delivered a “watch anywhere” world, where users aren’t limited by “how” they bought a piece of content. Physical or streaming – done.
We are excited to be part of this ground breaking offer, coupling physical and digital media in an awesome new way (sort of like when peanut butter first met chocolate). This holiday season the leader in children’s entertainment (that’s Disney), working with the world’s largest retailer (that’s Walmart) and the world’s best streaming movie service (that’s us – great to be on this list!), are making it easier than ever to get one of the year’s best movies (that’s Toy Story 3).
