VUDU now selling Spark HMDI/USB Streaming Stick

Vudu is now selling the Vudu Spark HDMI/USB stick for purchasing and renting movies on Vudu. The stick is a nicely designed dongle that looks a bit like the Chromecast or Roku Streaming Stick, but unlike those devices it’s only meant to access the Vudu service, not multiple online channels.

The Vudu Spark plugs into the HDMI port, and USB port for power. The device supports HDMI 1.4b, HDCP 1.3, and wireless networking through 802.11 Wi-Fi (b/g/n, 2.4GHz). The Spark can play video up to 1080p resolution (no 4k), and up to 7.1 digital surround sound.

One might ask why you would need the Spark if you already have the Vudu app on a Smart TV? Or, if you have a Blu-ray Disc player or gaming console with the Vudu app installed? In either case you probably wouldn’t need the device. But for HDTVs that aren’t connected, the Spark is an easy way to get all your Vudu and UltraViolet movies streaming to your TV, without the need to run an Ethernet cable.

Walmart is selling the Vudu Spark for $24.96 (both online and in-store). But for a limited time they will send you a $5 credit every month for five months if you purchase the device. That essentially make the Spark free, and even more appealing to those who already using the Vudu app.

Here’s a link the Vudu Spark user’s manual if you want to learn more.

  1. Hi Gearge Haselden, the stream stick will allow you to watch VUDU content on a HDTV that does not have Wi-Fi or Smart features or the VUDU app. I also eliminates the need to connect a laptop to your non-smart HDTV to view VUDU.

  2. Wait a minute….

    They’re selling the device that lets you view Vudu on the actual Vudu channel?

    It seems to me that if you can see the ad then you already have a way to view Vudu.

    Who’s idea was this?
