VZIO, Toshiba and Samsung are now shipping TVs and Blu-ray players with VUDU. “Heck yes!” (For the uninitiated, that was a Napolean Dynamite reference.)
In January we made some big announcements, including new partnerships with some of the largest CE manufacturers in the world. These included seven large name brands known the world over. To date, VUDU has shipped on TVs and BDPs from LG and Mitsubishi. Now, VUDU is shipping with three more of those outstanding new partners, including Samsung, Tohshiba and VIZIO. Five down, two more to go. (SANYO and Sharp.)
Samsung has a whole line of HDTVs, Blu-ray players and home theaters new for 2010, all of which stream VUDU movies. New VIZIO TVs are also on sale now, with VUDU inside. And Toshiba just today announced a new TV with VUDU. That TV from Toshiba (the UX600 LED TV) is also the very first device to ship with VUDU Apps, a new platform for delivery of Internet service to the home television. VUDU Apps has over 100 apps available, including the VUDU Streaming Movie Service, photos from Flickr and Picasa, music from Pandora, news from the Associated Press and the NYT, and many more.
The complete list of Samsung, Toshiba and VIZIO models is below. Most if not all are available in retail locations and retail websites now. When you get your new TV or Blu-ray home, look on the back to see if there’s an ethernet port. You might just find out that you have VUDU too and that you can watch HD movies on demand, including brand new titles just released on DVD. No disc required. 🙂
