In November, VUDU content will stream on the Boxee platform for both Mac and PC users, as well as the Boxee Box by D-Link. VUDU’s movie titles can be rented for $2 for two nights, and the software will be available as a free download from boxee.tv for Windows, Mac and Linux-based computers.
Through the free Boxee media center software, movies from VUDU’s library will be available in standard-definition. However using Boxee Box, movies from VUDU’s full HD and HDX library will be available in 1080p and Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound.
“The fact that Boxee Box users will have access to the largest selection of HD content through Vudu in the highest quality available today really sets us apart from our set top box competitors,” said Avner Ronen, CEO and co-founder of Boxee.
