Walmart is Bringing Vudu to the Apple TV Next Week

Walmart’s Vudu movie and television streaming service is coming to the Apple TV. The company has confirmed (via Variety) the app will launch on the fourth-generation set-top-box on August 22 and become available to anyone who wants to download it. It comes after the service has already landed on a list of different platforms including Roku, Google Chromecast, and Sony PlayStation. In total, Vudu is currently available on a whopping 179 different platforms.

If you’re unfamiliar, Vudu is a streaming service that currently houses over 100,000 titles which can be purchased or rented. There’s also more than 8,000 titles that can be converted from a DVD to digital format by scanning the film’s barcode. What I find interesting in today’s news, however, is the fact that there’s 4K content available for streaming on the platform. Apple is rumored to introduce a 4K/HDR-enabled Apple TV this year, so having Vudu on board and offering available content at such a definition would only make sense. Hopefully, this Apple TV rumor rules out to be true as I’m sure anyone who bought a 4K movie from Vudu would love to watch it on their television.
