CONVERT AND PURCHASE WITH A CLICK

Converting your physical movie collection to high-quality digital copies with Vudu Disc to Digital on iOS is as easy as opening your browser, navigating to vudu.com/disc, and clicking “Convert Disc.”

Purchasing movies and TV on iOS is just as simple: go to vudu.com, sign in, and browse.

If you want to start converting and purchasing with the convenience of a home screen app, here’s a simple trick to make sure these essential web pages are always just a click away:

First, open up Safari and navigate to the webpage you want to add to your home screen (vudu.com/disc for Disc to Digital, vudu.com for purchases).

Next, tap the share button at the bottom of the page and select “Add to Home Screen.”

Finally, select a name for your new shortcut, click “Add” and voila!

Do this for both URLs and you now have a set of handy home screen shortcuts to use any time you want to convert discs or purchase a movie or show on the fly. Happy streaming!

PREVENT ACCIDENTAL PURCHASES AND LIMIT CONTENT WITH PARENTAL CONTROLS

YOU MAKE THE RULES

Whether you’re trying to keep mature content away from prying young eyes, making sure only certain users are able to make purchases, or want to allow certain purchases but not others, Vudu has easy to use parental controls to make your life and your family movie night easier.

Simply navigate to the Settings (or gear icon) section on your TV, mobile, or streaming device to set a 4-digit PIN and designate which program ratings you’d like to restrict for purchasing and viewing.

No more accidental purchases or uncomfortable discussions, and each device is controlled separately so you can customize permissions on the kids’ and family screens while leaving your personal devices free of restriction.

The interface and options vary a little by device and platform (no parental controls on web browsers at the moment, for example), but the end goal is the same: a worry-free viewing experience for you and your family.

Set up parental controls today and enjoy some streaming peace of mind.

5 TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WI-FI

STREAMING STARTS HERE

Whether you’re tearing through a season of your favorite show, hosting a movie marathon, or browsing the latest new releases, it all starts with working Wi-Fi. Here are a few helpful hints for ensuring your home internet streams like a dream.

1. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

Not all router locations are created equal. Placing your Wi-Fi router in an open space (not a closed cabinet), elevated off of the ground, and close to the center of your home can help boost performance for all your home’s devices.

2. EXTEND YOUR REACH

Need more coverage in the parts of your home farthest from the router? Adding a Wi-Fi extender or two to your network can help get your signal to the farthest reaches of your space.

3. WHEN IN DOUBT, REBOOT

Turning it off and on again may be cliche, but that’s because it works. If you’re dealing with slow speeds, repeated errors, or spotty coverage, a simple hard reset can often set things right.

4. IF IT AIN’T BROKE, DO FIX IT

Replacing electronics is never going to be our first choice, but Wi-Fi routers do tend to get better and more reliable over time as new technologies emerge. Replacing your router every few years before it breaks down will make sure you’re getting the most bang for your internet bucks.

5. INVEST IN SUCCESS

If you’re ready to go state-of-the-art, replacing your traditional Wi-Fi router with a mesh network will get you top-tier Wi-Fi throughout your entire space for uninterrupted, high-quality streaming.

Vudu launches HDR10 support

 

We’re expanding HDR movies to millions more devices

 

At Vudu, our goal has always been to bring you the highest quality movie & TV experience across as many devices and platforms as possible. One measure of our commitment to quality is our support of the enhanced dynamic range, brightness, and vibrancy of HDR technology, beginning two years ago with Dolby Vision HDR.

 

We’re excited to announce the addition of HDR10 support, which brings the color depth and richness of HDR to more devices than ever before. Our support of HDR10, which is quickly becoming a common feature on more and more 4K TVs and streaming devices, means more people can enjoy HDR and the best possible cinematic experience at home.

 

Enjoy HDR across more devices

 

Now, you can watch in 4K + HDR10 on compatible Samsung and LG TVs, Xbox One S and X, and Roku 4K and Nvidia Shield devices. So, if you bought a new 4K TV or streaming device within the past year, you very likely have HDR-ready equipment. (See a complete list here.)

 

With complete HDR support across both HDR10 and Dolby Vision formats, Vudu customers have more device choices from which to enjoy the latest in digital video technology. Users will automatically get the format that is compatible with their 4K + HDR TV or streaming device for the best possible picture.

 

How do I get started?

 

Once you confirm that you have a Vudu-certified 4K + HDR enabled TV or device, and are using the latest Vudu app, you’re ready to go.

 

HDR is available on a growing list of 4K UHD titles. At launch, we have over 36 movies to which we have added HDR10 support, and you can check out the current collection of 4K UHD titles here.

 

We’re working toward bringing HDR to as many of our 4K UHD movies as possible, and we will continue to roll them out as we receive them.
