Vudu Says Service Offered By 1,000 Custom Installers20 Oct, 2008 By: Billy Gil
Video-on-demand provider Vudu says it has reached a milestone: More than 1,000 home installation companies offer the service.
Vudu is available through the Vudu XL set-top box, a movie player with enough hard-drive space for about 500 movies, according to the company. The set-top box provider also recently launched HDX, an on-demand HD format on cable, satellite, broadcast and the Internet.
“HDX is rapidly becoming the solution of choice for HD home theater enthusiasts nationwide,” said Mark Jung, CEO of Vudu. “We are pleased that in just seven months of shipping Vudu XL, we have signed up over 1,000 home theater dealers … [meaning] that consumers throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the highest quality 1080p on-demand movies on their home theater systems.”
