The Walmart-owned streaming service Vudu is now offering free viewing of ad-supported movies such as “School of Rock,” “True Grit,” and “Point Break” (1991).
The titles are available to stream in up to 1080p (Vudu’s HDX format) if internet bandwidth allows, with a Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 soundtrack depending on title.
For now, the selections are limited and don’t include any of Vudu’s 4k UHD titles such as “Warcraft” or “Mad Max Fury Road.” You won’t find many blockbusters or new releases such as “Star Trek Beyond” or “Ghostbusters.”
However, there are some great archive titles among the mix such as “Mad Max,” “Out of Time,” and “The Running Man.”
To find movies that stream free through an internet browser make sure you are on the default “New” tab and click on “Movies On Us.” On a mobile device using the Vudu app, click on “Spotlight” to find free titles.
“As part of the Walmart family, Vudu is always looking for new ways for customers to save money,” said Jeremy Verba, VP/GM of Vudu.
