Vudu is one of the few places you can purchase or rent 4k UHD titles, and although the list of compatible devices has been somewhat limited, support has been extended to include the newest streamers from Roku including Premiere, Premiere +, and Ultra, as well as Chromecast Ultra that should be getting a firmware update to support Dolby Vision sometime soon. (Here’s a list of compatible devices.)
Since our last update two new Ben Affleck movies have been added to Vudu’s UHD library including the 3-time Oscar winner Argo (2012) and Oscar-nominated The Town (2010). Both titles feature 4k resolution with HDR (High Dynamic Range) enhancements via Dolby Vision specifications, and sell for $29.99 each.
