Vudu, the digital video service that was owned by Walmart before Fandango bought it last year, is finally making its way to the Amazon Fire TV platform. The app is a big source of high-quality, 4K HDR movie rentals. You can also access your existing Vudu library — including Movies Anywhere titles — with the Fire TV app, which should be rolling out in the coming days.
“We want Vudu fans to be able to watch movies and TV shows on all of their favorite devices, and Fire TV has been one of our customers’ most-requested devices for streaming content,” Kevin Shepela, Fandango’s chief commercial officer, said in a press release.
With Vudu joining the roster of apps, Fire TV owners will get another go-to destination for Dolby Vision content. Vudu notes that it offers “more than 150,000 new release and catalog movies and TV shows, along with an extensive library of content in 4K UHD, including many titles unavailable on subscription services.”
Before this latest expansion to Fire TV, Vudu released apps for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S last year — along with a Tivo app. It also came to Comcast’s Xfinity Flex and X1 platforms earlier this month.
