Vudu is a content delivery and media technology company that distributes the latest movies over the Internet to television, before they are released on DVD or Blu-ray. The service operates in the US and it’s owned by Walmart, and now it has a Windows 10 application for computers, which brings over 100 thousand movies and TV shows. When the Xbox One console was released in 2013, Vudu was one of the first entertainment brands that launched an application for it.
In the past weeks, many companies have removed their applications from the Windows Store, but it seems that VUDU has been planning to expand its support for Windows 10 devices. The new application will allow you to:
– Watch the new released movies, from still-in-theater hits to blockbusters and before coming out on DVD or Blu-ray;
– Watch TV episodes a day after broadcast, or choose to watch complete seasons;
– Rent or own content that you want, without paying a subscription or other rental fees;
– Download movies or TV shows and watch them anywhere, anytime, or stream them directly to your Windows 10 device;
– Connect to both Ultraviolet and Disney Movies Anywhere.
If you have a Windows 10 Mobile device, then you won’t be able to download the application, because it works on PCs. Hopefully, VUDU will release a Universal Windows Platform app, so that users will be able to watch their favorite movies while they’re traveling by bus or train, or when they’re getting bored at work.
Movies offered by VUDU are available in four formats: standard-definition (480p & 480i), high-definition (720p), full high-definition (1080p & 1080i) and ultra high-definition (2160p) and they are encoded in MPEG-4 video and Dolby Digital Plus audio, with output in Dolby Digital 5.1, but users can opt for stereo output as well.
