VUDU announced it will expand its streaming services this year to select HDTVs and Blu-ray players from LG, Mitsubishi, Samsung, SANYO, Sharp, Toshiba and VIZIO. LG was the first to offer VUDU on HDTVs last year, and this year 32 models from the company will be VUDU ready.
The company also said it will launch VUDU Apps (their new streaming platform) on HDTVs from Mitsubishi, Sharp, SANYO and Toshiba, as well as broadband Blu-ray players from Toshiba. The interface provides access to internet services like Twitter, Flickr and CNN Daily.
VUDU has a catalog of 3,000 HD movies, some of which are coded in VUDU’s HDX format which streams at 1080p with 5.1 Dolby Digital. The company says it is making all new releases available in HDX.
