VUDU does Facebook and Twitter integration

Posted in VUDU by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2010

The VUDU update this week will be of interest to those of you who like social networking sites. VUDU will now update your Facebook or Twitter status with your impressions of the movie you’re watching. Your friends with VUDU will also be able to see those updates and join in on the fun by watching the same movie.

It’s a cool way to promote and discover content, but we aren’t sure if it will catch on. The way Boxee does it might make more sense.

VUDU brings Pandora, Picasa and Flickr to connected HDTVs, more apps coming soon

Posted in VUDU by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2009

VUDU brings Pandora, Picasa and Flickr to connected HDTVs, more apps coming soonWait. I thought HDTVs were all about watching actual TV. Well, VUDU thinks it’s all about apps and they may be right. VUDU has today made both Picasa and Flickr access possible through LG and Mitsubishi sets with integrated VUDU software.

Yes, this was already available to those of you relying on one of VUDU’s set-top boxes, but some of us like to have everything within the display itself. Pandora streaming is also available on VUDU-fied Mitsubishi panels, but LG has “requested that only free TV and games be available on their devices.”

VUDU cuts retail price of movie set-top-box in halfMost of us thought that after Christmas those promotional prices would change, but instead of prices going back up on the Vudu set-top-box, the retail price is now permanently reduced by 50%. You can get a box for $149 (previously $299).

The VUDU XL is also down by half, dropping from $999 to $499, which includes a home theater connectivity software package. Even the VUDU XL2 is getting in on the action, dropping from $1,299 to $799. So, are you gonna buy one now?

Vudu goes wireless

Vudu goes wireless
Most devices come with wireless capabilities, whereas the Vudu broadband video-on-demand box requires an Ethernet connection. As of today, that’s no longer the case as a wireless option is available for Vudu. The Vudu Wireless Kit is a pair of transceivers that creates an 802.11g wireless connection between the Vudu and your broadband router.

Those who already own Vudu can get the kit for $79. The other option, for new customers, is to buy the Vudu Wireless Kit bundle for a price of $349. It’s what many have been waiting for, but we’d like to see it at a slightly lower price.

Vudu on demand video box drops price to keep up with rival Apple TVIt just keeps getting better for consumers looking for on-demand set top boxes. In response to the new firmware upgrade and price drop announced by Jobs for the Apple TV, Vudu has given its own demand box a 25 percent discount. This brings the price of the Vudu system down to $295 from $399.

Apple recently discounted the Apple TV with prices as low as $229 for the 40GB model and they’ve also are scheduled to move into a space where Vudu had an upper hand – movie downloads without a PC. Apple TV not only is going to match that point of service but can also bring in YouTube videos AND content from your computer into your living room, which Vudu cannot.
