This past year Walmart sold its mostly-video on-demand video service Vudu to Fandango, and today, after a long time of no longer working on Amazon’s Fire TV platform the app has finally reached mostly of the devices it wasn’t already on. Vudu has specialized in delivering high-quality movies and Television shows always, even dating back to to once you needed a $400 box merely to get access to it.
While Fire TV needless to say includes Amazon’s own video on-demand store, having Vudu available means people can stream HDR and 4K content from another source, along with benefit from the various sales and free ad-supported streaming it has even. In a statement, Fandango exec Kevin Shepela said “With Vudu’s vast library of premium content from era event movies to favorite films and Television shows, we have been excited to provide to Fire TV users so many new viewing options to view in their living spaces, many in breathtaking 4K.”
The announcement also noted “double-digit” growth in new accounts during 2020 – you’d hope so, year with more and more people watching movies in the home – when compared to previous. Additionally launch, and Vudu recently becoming on Comcast’s set-top boxes, which means good stuff about its future under new ownership hopefully. The pace of developing new features for Vudu has been relatively slow always, even though its UI is consistent, it hasn’t changed significantly in lots of years, so a person with a library of content stored on the ongoing service advantages from it continuing to cultivate.
