TiVo adds support for VUDU
| 31 October 2014
PVR pioneer TiVo has added support for VUDU, Walmart's subscription-free, video-on-demand movie service.
The VUDU application for TiVo set-top boxes (STBs) enables users to rent or purchase new release movies and TV shows, as well as access a fully customised Ultraviolet cloud library.
VUDU's recently expanded catalogue features TV shows from CBS, Comedy Central, HBO, MTV, National Geographic, Nickelodeon and Showtime, as well as a range of films.
Thanks to Ultraviolet support, VUDU content purchased via the TiVo service is viewable on other VUDU-enabled devices or platforms, including game consoles, Internet-connected Blu-ray players and HDTVs, tablets, computers and more. Also, content purchased on any of these platforms can be viewed through the TiVo service.
"VUDU gives our customers even more choice and flexibility when it comes to searching for, accessing and enjoying a wide variety of content," said Tara Maitra, senior vice president and GM for content and media sales at TiVo. "Now more than ever, TiVo makes it easy to consolidate all of your content into one, comprehensive experience that can then be accessed anywhere, anytime from your TV and mobile devices."
