Yes! Yes it Does! Today our next generation interface will be pushed to most enabled devices. VUDU 2.0 is optimized for HD quality and to help you discover your next favorite movie even faster & more enjoyably. Everything you loved about the existing VUDU is the same – quick access to the hottest new releases, Rotten Tomatoes reviews, linked filmographies of cast and crew – is now even better.
Here is what you will find in the new UI:
-Improved browsing and navigation
-Faster access to more great movies
-Recommendations based on your viewing history
-A 2.0 interface optimized for HD viewing and next generation controllers
This will be automatic, no downloads or discs or extra clicks. If you have any questions or need more details you can find it here in our FAQ.
We are currently working to update VIZIO TVs & Samsung devices to the new 2.0 interface — we expect the update to roll out to those TVs and devices soon.
Take a look & let us know what you think here on our Facebook page.
Boxee Box owners, the wait is over! Now you can stream the latest Hollywood releases directly to your Boxee Box. As our friends
at Boxee say, “The VUDU HDX format on the Boxee Box is a match made in geek heaven!” We have to agree!
Find out more about Boxee at www.boxeetv.com and read the full blog post on Boxee’s Blog. Any new VUDU user that signs up on Boxee Box will receive a $5.99 credit towards their first rental or purchase on VUDU. We are really excited to add the Boxee Box to our family of VUDU-enabled devices and to reach a new audience of movie lovers!
As some of you may have seen in the news about the big electronics show, CES, last week, we announced our entry into a whole new dimension – 3D! 3D was a huge trend at CES this year and we were able to chat about the state of the industry with our friends at USA Today, Hollywood Reporter, and Fortune among others.
We’re working with our partners to enable 3D streaming on multiple VUDU-enabled TVs and Blu-ray players so you can access the 3D content we have available now. We’re excited to announce that if you have a 3D-enabled TV hooked up to your PlayStation® 3, you can stream in 3D directly from VUDU.
So grab your 3D glasses and hang on!
Over the last two years, one question has torn apart friendships and families (while simultaneously selling a lot of t-shirts): “Edward or Jacob?”
Beginning Dec. 4, you can make your choice! With every purchase of a physical copy of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse at Walmart or walmart.com (including Movie-only DVD, the Two-Disc Special Edition, Twilight Eclipse / Destination Forks two-pack, Blu-ray Movie Only or Blu-ray Combo Pack), customers will receive an offer for a $5 movie credit on VUDU. Once again, Walmart and VUDU are joining forces to deliver an awesome value to movie lovers!
Yes, you heard correctly. You can grab the physical DVD or Blu-ray disc (so you can drool over the cover art) AND get the digital copy to stream to your VUDU enabled PS3, Blu-Ray Player, Connected TV, or computer (via Boxee) . Or, you can use your credit to stream any other available movie on the service -– including the original Twilight or The Twilight Saga: New Moon (for those of you who aren’t caught up on your romantic vampire saga viewing) or other hot new releases like Knight and Day, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, or Grown Ups. VUDU aims to provide you with the movies you want to watch, when you want to watch, without limits tied to how you got the content.
So put in your vampire teeth and join me in Forks . . . and let’s get ready for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse!
