Sony adds Vudu movie service to 2011 line of Blu-ray players

Walmart's Vudu movie-on-demand service is continuing to expand the range of connected devices it is available on, announcing that it is rolling out on the 2011 line of Sony connected Blu-ray Disc Players.

Vudu, acquired last year by Walmart, is now available on more than 300 consumer electronics devices including connected TVs and Blu-ray players, PCs, Playstation 3 and the iPhone.

"Vudu continues to give people more options to discover and enjoy the highest quality movie experience in their living room," Edward Lichty, General Manager of Vudu, said.  "By adding Sony Blu-ray Disc Players to our roster of top tier connected devices we provide yet another avenue for anybody to enjoy a great movie, with a simple click of a button."

Vudu offers a large selection of HD movies, including blockbusters, Hollywood classics, and indies available in HDX 1080p with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound. Movies are available the same day they are released on DVD or Blu-ray, and can be rented or purchased without a subscription.
