We just added a great new feature to the VUDU movie service: “New Trailers”.
You will find it under a new tab on the VUDU movie service start screen. With this new feature you can watch hot new Hollywood trailers, right on your VUDU enabled TV or Bluray player. And, as always with VUDU, it is all on-demand, all in 1080p resolution with 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus surround sound.
In industry parlance these trailers are pre-theatrical trailers, trailers that movie studios put out to create buzz for upcoming movies. We get these trailers as soon as they are out, and make them available in SD, HD, and HDX quality.
These high quality pre-theatrical trailers provide a great way to sample the VUDU experience without having to spend a dime, even if you do not have a VUDU account. Many of our beta users also report using the trailers to test their home bandwidth and find out which VUDU movie qualities work best with their broadband service.
A really cool feature we added by popular demand is the ability to automatically watch the trailers in sequence, essentially creating a “nothing but trailers” movie. Trailers are an art form in their own right, enjoy them now in their full glory… in HDX.
