Vudu Offers Starter Pack Promo8 Oct, 2013 By: Chris Tribbey
Walmart’s Vudu VOD service is looking to bring in more users with a new “starter pack” promotion, offering new consumers five 1080p films for free, just for signing up.
“While other services offer only free 480p standard-definition movies at signup, Vudu lets users choose from nearly 30 titles in stunning 1080p HD quality, including Star Trek, There’s Something About Mary, Man on Fire, Mission Impossible, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and more,” a Vudu spokeswoman said.
After picking the five films, users can buy an additional three 1080p movies for $15.
Walmart also offered an update on its Vudu- and UltraViolet-powered disc-to-digital service, sharing that the top films being converted from disc to digital include titles from the franchises “Lord of the Rings,” “Dark Knight,” “Harry Potter” and “X-Men.”
