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.
