Vudu Video Service is Coming To Apple TV

Walmart’s Vudu movie streaming and downloading service is set to debut on Apple TV later this month as the company officially plans to launch a program for the stage, Variety reports.

Apple TV will join the laundry list of all platforms Vudu supports. Those include Roku, Google Chromecast, Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, Microsoft Xbox One and Xbox 360, iOS and Android mobile devices, PCs, Macs and connected TVs and Blu-ray Disc players.

While the service allows users to purchase and rent films and TV shows, also, it offers a Movies on Us feature using a selection of free articles not including new releases. The support is only available in the U.S. and so only for Apple TV User located there.

Vudu Video Service is Coming To Apple TV

The service provides and also supports UltraViolet, a digital cloud locker for the video that has become the entertainment business standard. Vudu also allows clients to convert over 8,000 movies from disk to digital by scanning a movie’s barcode, allows bought titles to be shared multiple occasions without additional charge, and offers 4k support.

While Vudu is currently supported on 179 platforms, Apple TV was a notable exception due to, as Apple Insider notes, Apple policies which “deter third parties from selling movies and shows directly through iOS and tvOS.”

The addition is necessary since iTunes frequently covers the foundations for leases and purchases. All the same, it closing a conspicuous difference in accessibility. Vudu has been accessible on Roku players TVs, Chromecast as well as devices – the Apple TV is one. You probably were not basing your purchasing decision on Vudu (maybe not alone, at least), but this might help sway you when you’re determined to have as many choices as you can.
