The Ultimate Question: Edward or Jacob?

HD, VUDU

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!

VUDU now has 3000 HDX titles, the largest HD collection anywhere

HD, VUDU

Like your movies in bold, beautiful 1080p with 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus Surround Sound?  Then VUDU’s HDX format is for you.  And now we’ve got over 3000 HDX titles available on the service, more than any other HD collection anywhere, even Blu-ray.

HDX chartIt wasn’t easy to do this.  Our encoding team spent long hours, nights and weekends in the lab to make this happen.  But we heard from you that you wanted more HDX, and we are always committed to doing whatever we can to respond to our customers and make VUDU as good as it can possibly be.  And don’t worry, we’re not stopping at 3,000 (although we will let our encoding team get some rest for a bit after the tremendous push to 3K) – every new movie from a major studio that we offer on VUDU will be available in HDX (and also in our still-excellent HD and SD formats).

So, if you get a chance and have a sufficiently speedy (4.5mbps or faster) internet connection, treat yourself to the best movie experience this side of Blu-ray – HDX on VUDU.  Let us know what you think.
