Vudu Claims More Than 1,100 HD Titles On Demand



By Billy Gil | Posted: 10 Nov 2008


Video-on-demand set-top box provider Vudu announced it carries more than 1,100 high-definition titles on demand. Vudu says it averaged more than 150 HD titles added per week in October.

“We’re certainly proud to offer the largest HD library on the planet, but the motivation to accomplish this really sprang from our customers, retail partners and home theater installation professionals, all of whom were asking for more HD content,” said Edward Lichty, EVP of content at Vudu. “And this is only the beginning of our effort. We plan to maintain a leadership position in offering the best picture quality experience and the deepest library anywhere when it comes to HD.”

Vudu claims a total of more than 10,000 VOD titles, including standard-definition fare. High-definition titles are streamed in two formats: instant-start HD and HDX. Vudu’s VBX100 box plays movies in 1080p resolution at 24 frames a second, including standard-definition titles, which it upconverts, according to Vudu.

Considering that Hollywood has barely over 1000 Blu-ray HD titles, VUDU has very few customers, and most of their $40 Millions USD in funding is gone. Either VUDU is leading us down the garden path or the titles are CRAP!!! Also VUDU does not offer a true blu-ray HD experience in 1080p. Unlike this service that I found recently called MyTVPAL ( www.mytvpal.com ). They provide Thousands of movies and Hundreds of live tv channels from all over the world!!! Also how stable can day to day business be at VUDU if Mark Jung, the CEO just got the boot! Man the VC's will take over this company and then what will happen..... Comment Guy
