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

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.

    How about explaining how to get HDX to work without stopping every 5 seconds, for those of us less computer-literate people? Given the choice I’d still rather buy on Blu-Ray, and you make me very angry that you have titles I can’t get on any disc format.

    Bruce — I’m sorry to hear you’re having troubles streaming an HDX film. This is usually caused by a limited amount of bandwidth available for your VUDU. If you’re not sure of the amount of bandwidth coming to your network, run a speed test from this website: http://speedtest.vudu.com/cdn1/ – There will be a chart explaining the limitations for each quality.

    If you are able to stream HDX content (at least 4.5 Mbps) and are still running into buffering issues, try contacting our support department at (888) 554-VUDU for assistance.

    I watched over 3/4 of Rise of the Planet of the Apes last night. At that point, I wanted to rewind a few seconds. I did so, but then started seeing the “Unable to stream movie due to network issue. Try a little later”. Nearly 20 hours later, I’m still not able to finish the movie. I tried calling vudu customer support, but they’re closed on holidays (very nice for a home entertainment service). My speed test results on the same wireless device is over 10,000 kbps. I’ve recycled the router (Airport), and tried watching other trailers on vudu – same issue. I have no problem watching the movie in SD on a computer using the same wireless connection. This is my first experience with vudu, and I’m afraid it will be my last….
