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.

Buried – Paul Conroy wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why. Buried with only a cell phone and lighter, his worst enemies are bad reception, a rapidly draining battery, and low oxygen. Paul only has ninety minutes to be rescued. Available to own or rent in SD, HD, and HDX!
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!
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our blog. These issues are being addressed. We thank you for your patience while we assess the situation.
