Want to know what titles are available in 4k on Vudu? The service has been adding a selection of new UHD titles every Tuesday that can be streamed through the Vudu app to supporting 4k media players and TVs.

UHD titles on Vudu are not exactly inexpensive. Most movies are priced at $29.99 each (the same as many new 4k Blu-ray titles), but select titles do offer high quality video and audio through Dolby Vision (HDR) and Dolby Atmos.

And, recently Vudu started authenticating UHD copies through UltraViolet, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Star Trek Beyond, and The Secret Life of Pets (read more).

Since our last update Vudu has added several UHD movies including The LEGO Batman Movie, The Great Wall, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Fifty Shades Darker, Office Christmas Party, and The Magnificent Seven.

Some older, catalog titles recently added in UHD include The Princess Bride, Furious 7, Fast & Furious 6, The Silence of the Lambs, Battleship, and I Am Legend.

Here are the video/audio specs and prices.

  • The Lego Batman Movie – Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos, $29.99
  • The Great Wall – Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos, $29.99
  • xXx: The Return of Xander Cage – Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos $29.99
  • Fifty Shades Darker – Dolby Vision & Dolby Digital Plus, $29.99
  • Office Christmas Party Dolby Vision & Dolby Digital Plus, $29.99
  • The Magnificent Seven –Dolby Vision & Dolby Atmos, $29.99
  • I Am Legend – Dolby Vision & Dolby Digital Plus, $29.99

  • Furious 7 – Dolby Vision & Dolby Digital Plus, $29.99
  • The Silence of the Lambs – Dolby Vision & Dolby Digital Plus, $29.99

Vudu’s list of compatible devices with UHD is somewhat limited, but support has been extended to include the newest media players 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.
