Vudu launches HDR10 support

 

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.

Vudu now plays on Apple TV!

The Vudu Player for Apple TV! Watch your movies + free movies + your Ultraviolet collection!

Play thousands of free movies on us titles, your movies & TV, and your UltraViolet collection

 

Surprise!

 

Starting today, you can download our new Vudu Player for Apple TV from the Apple TV App Store. That’s right, you heard it here – second. Ha!

 

The Vudu Player for Apple TV lets you play over 4,000 free Movies On Us titles, as well as your existing Vudu collection, natively on 4th generation Apple TVs with tvOS 10. And the Vudu Player is the first (and only – just want to reiterate that) player that gives you access to your UltraViolet digital locker on Apple TV (#humblebrag).

 

 

 

You want more, more, more? Ok

 

Apple TV now joins the ever-growing list of Vudu-enabled devices that give you anytime, anywhere access to your movies & TV. Whether you’re an all Apple household or a mixed device one, now you can access Vudu from more of your favorite devices – including Apple TV, Chromecast, Android and iOS mobile devices, smart TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, streaming devices like Roku, and the web.

 

We’ve gone native

 

The Vudu Player lets you play without AirPlay, swipe and tap your way though over 4,000 free Movies On Us titles with the Apple TV remote, and even ask Siri to search Vudu and your collection for the movie or TV show you want to watch. You’ll also be able to Wishlist any titles you want to save for later – an experience that parallels the Vudu iOS app.

 

New to Vudu?

 

New users will want to head over to vudu.com/signup to set up your free Vudu account online. App Store guidelines prevent us from offering a sign up option from the Vudu Player.

 

While you’re on the web signing up, you can also buy or rent any of our over 100,000 titles and link your existing UltraViolet and Disney Movies Anywhere accounts for instant access to your collection. Or just hop on Apple TV right away and take one of the over 4,000 free Movies On Us titles for a spin.

Someone’s having a big Monday. We’re just having a Monday.

But Don’t worry, we’ve got an app for that

 

There’s a lot going on just south of us in the city of San Jose. Big stuff. Important stuff. And announcements. Lots of announcements. So we’ve decided to share one of our own.

 

In honor of all things Apple today, we thought we’d share a couple of screens from our Apple TV app that’s in development. We want to bring you the best possible app and Vudu experience, so we’re still tweaking and fine-tuning – but stay tuned for a fall release.

 

I’ll just leave these here…
