For those of you who are wondering, there were a total of 19 hidden V’s. Did you find them all? If not, don’t feel too bad, we did warn you it’d be tough.
If you’re curious to know where they were, here’s a complete recap of all of them all (we’ve even included timestamps). Click on each image to enlarge.
A big round of applause to all of you that watched the video and entered. Keep following this blog and our social media pages – Facebook and Twitter – for more contests and giveaways in the future! Congrats again guys! And be sure to check out the new vudu.com if you haven’t already!
DON’T COUNT YOURSELF OUT Enter the contest by tomorrow
You still have time to enter our Hidden V contest and maybe score yourself a cool $100 in Vudu Credit. Just watch the video on our brand new site, or below, and count all the “V” icons we’ve hidden throughout. Simple enough…or is it?
You might need to watch it once or twice – some are easy, but some are a little harder. Some even appear twice. So, keep your eyes peeled because there’s $100 in Vudu credit on the line for ten lucky Vudu fans.
And if you haven’t already, head over to the site and check out all the new features we added to make your experience better than ever.
You’ll find a more intuitive layout, an easier to navigate menu, and an enhanced search that offers dynamic search results, suggestions, and results sorted by movies, TV, and people.
Enter the contest here, and find the complete rules and a sample “V” here.
We came into 2018 like a wrecking ball, and are happy to announce we’ve already knocked out one of our first resolutions – to give you a brand new web experience.
We’re excited to introduce the redesigned vudu.com, and we think you’re going to like what you see.
We’ve redesigned our site with you in mind – giving you new functionality, an improved user experience, and a smarter search so you can find your favorite movies & TV faster and easier.
Take a close look, you might see $100
Visit our new site; take it for a test spin. Maybe check out our 50¢ rental sale. With over 150 movies you can rent for just 50¢ each, it’s a pretty amazing sale. It’s, like, only the most amazing party favor ever.
Then, look for our new video on the homepage (also below). We hid a bunch of Vudu “V” icons throughout the video, and if you can spot them, you can enter for a chance to win one of ten $100 Vudu credits. Enter here. Complete rules and example, here. And be sure to look closely, there are a few that repeat and a few that are pretty hard to find. Take your best guess and have fun!
Do you see? This is Vudu changing, do you see?
We made a good number of improvements so it may take some exploring to discover them all. Here are the bigger ones:
It’s not a Red Dragon-level change (thankfully), but our new look is the result of a lot of sweating the details and a dedication to ensuring everything you need is where you’d expect it to be. Our new site is designed to deliver an online experience that’s clean, stylish, and intuitive – and more representative of our commitment to giving you our best.
Tab? I can’t give you a tab unless you order something
For Marty McFly, Tab is refreshing. We feel they get in the way of getting you to what you are looking for, so, we, uh, we fixed the “glitch.” (I believe you have my stapler.…)
When you choose a title, you’ll now see renting and buying options, the trailer, and even digital copy redemption front and center. But more importantly, we have eliminated the tabs so information like cast and crew, reviews, and movie details are just a scroll away.
And our redesigned navigation rolls as smooth as Leo DiCaprio. We already mentioned we cut the tabs on movie pages, but we’ve also eliminated the secondary menu tabs that just stacked on top of each other. So, now you can find pretty much everything under Movies, TV, My Vudu, Movies On Us, and Redeem.
Our new search has a very particular set of skills
But unlike Liam Neeson, our smarter search won’t kill anyone. However, it will find what you’re looking for – and give you search suggestions along the way. It even organizes the suggestions by Movies, TV, and People.
Yup, you read that right. Now, you can even search people. Meaning you can search for that one movie that you know Jake Gyllenhaal is in, without having to think, “wait, is it spelled with two a’s, or one?”
There’s a lot of other little changes that you may not even notice off the bat except to think, “hey, this looks pretty sweet.” But as you explore, you’ll find that it’s easier to move around, and everything just looks and works better. Which is our ultimate goal – to give you the best experience possible. After all, you’re why we’re here.

It’s Mix & Match madness! We’ve got a Mix & Match: End of Year collection of 114 titles that lets you choose two movies for $9.99. That’s right, two movies for a total of $9.99. So, make that list and check it twice, because the holidays just got twice as nice.
If you’ve used Mix & Match before, you know you can find it our website in the scrolling carousel and under the Collections tab.

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.
