VUDU Video Streaming Service launches on Walmart.com

Walmart today announced the integration of its movie streaming service, VUDU, on Walmart.com. Customers can now shop for thousands of digital VUDU titles, including the hottest new releases, and purchase and/or rent them directly on Walmart.com.

As customers shop for movies at Walmart.com, they now have the option to select the digital VUDU title and/or the physical title (DVD or Blu-ray Disc). Those who select the digital title complete their transaction through Walmart.com’s checkout, and then can easily stream the movie directly from Walmart.com, VUDU.com, or from one of more than 300 VUDU-enabled devices, including select HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players and the PlayStation 3.

“At Walmart, one of our key priorities is to provide a continuous channel for our customers, from our stores to our powerful e-commerce and social media platforms,” said Steve Nave, SVP and general manager, Walmart.com. “With VUDU becoming increasingly popular among our customers, we’re providing them more access to enjoy this digital entertainment experience directly online at Walmart.com.”

This is great timing for Walmart. Netflix just pissed off a lot of streaming customers with the higher priced stand-alone streaming plan.

To celebrate this launch on Walmart.com, VUDU is inviting fans on Walmart’s Facebook page to vote for a new release title that will be available to rent for only 99 cents. The titles to choose from include:

  1.     “Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules” (PG)
  2.     “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” (PG-13)
  3.     “Gnomeo and Juliet” (PG)

Check out the VUDU streaming service on Walmart.com.
