Except when treating employees like garbage, Walmart isn’t much of a trendsetter. Now, the mega huge big box store may be continuing its “me too” tradition according to a new report from The Information and the Associated Press, saying Walmart is working on a shipping service to rival Amazon Prime for $50 per year.
There's too much year left to name Vudu Spark the worst gadget of 2015. But it will without question go down as the most cynical.
I suspect the Germans have a word for taking something great and then stripping it of everything remotely joyful until it's a cold hollow shell not fit for existence. Now I do too! Well, two words, I guess: Vudu Spark.
Already saddled with a 56-day premiere delay, your Instant Queue isn't getting any younger—assuming you can even find something to watch. Here's how to make up for lost time and keep your queue packed with Netflix's (relatively) newest and best offerings.
If you're looking to convert DVDs and BluRay discs to a digital format and want it to be easy, but not too easy, and definitely not free, Walmart has the service for you. They're automating their Disc-to-Digital service so you can get UltraViolet versions of movies you've already bought.
VUDU, the streaming movie and TV service, is trying to cut Apple out of the profit picture by circumventing the App Store with a webapp. This way, Apple doesn't get money off of VUDU's movie sales and rentals.
Stop watching movies and TV shows according to Hollywood's schedule! With video-on-demand, you can watch TV whenever you want, wherever you want, and you don't even have to remember to program a box to record it. Here's MaximumPC's take on the major online VOD services available today.
Looking back on it now, the first time I truly felt the need for a note-taking app was when I started researching note-taking apps. I was just looking for a simple tool to save ideas about upcoming articles or jot down an occasional to-do list.
A new update just brought Vudu's collection of HD streaming movies—some 4000 of them in all—to Boxee Boxes. More movies! Never a bad thing. These ones arrive in 1080p with Dolby Digital surround sound, and they'll cost Boxee owners $6 a pop for two night rentals (or $2 for regular old SD movies). The Boxee team says…
Sometime later this month, VUDU's on-demand movie streaming service will come to the PlayStation 3. This'll mean instant access more than 4,000 HD movies at the cost of $2 per two-night rental. Not too shabby.
The D-Link Boxee Box (in addition to Boxee clients for PC and Mac) will offer HD movie rentals when it lands in living rooms in coming weeks, courtesy of a new partnership with Vudu. Vudu's full HD rentals—1080p, Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 Surround Sound—cost 2 bucks a pop for two nights of viewing. Not a bad service to…
Our society, spoiled by the endless diversions of the internet, now demands more than mere television of its televisions. Toshiba understands, packing Vudu Movies and a host of web content into its Wi-Fi friendly UX600 1080p HDTV.
Just as we feared, Walmart is eliminating Vudu's "After Dark" section after purchasing the streaming company/technology for $100 million. Walmart, who doesn't sell adult films and only sells edited version of some music, basically just did what was in line with their image. Sad, since Vudu was the only big video…
Sources have told AllThingsD that Vudu is in "meaningful" acquisition discussions, with Walmart being the most likely analog moneybags candidate. Given that Vudu is making its way to most new TVs, acquisition sounds like a good plan for Walmart. [AllThingsD]
Whoa. This summer we were pretty excited about Vudu bringing Rotten Tomatoes to connected LG hardware. Take that excitement, add hardware from Mitsubishi, Sanyo, Sharp, Toshiba, and
Vizio, and multiply it by hundreds of services and you've got Vudu Apps.

Vudu promised its 1080p a la carte streaming movie service would be coming to the LG BD390 Blu-ray player by the end of last month, making LG's connected box just about the best on the market. Well, it's a little late, but it's here, and it brings with it some new goodies: namely, Rotten Tomatoes integration.
