VUDU to get Chromecast support in upcoming update


Chromecast supported apps are still a bit rare, but we have received a good selection the past months. We got a plethora of supported apps last December (here’s how to download them), but all the fun began when the Google Cast SDK was opened to developers. There were some initial hiccups, but now all developers can bake Chromecast support into their apps, and here is the latest one to do so!

VUDU and its advantages


VUDU is a video streaming service in which users can rent or purchase movies. In addition, you can even redeem those UltraViolet codes you get when you purchase a BluRay disc. It happens to be one of the most popular streaming services out there, but I feel like it still needs some recognition.

You can rent movies for $2, which is a deal compared to many other streaming services. It can cost a bit more than subscription services like Netflix if you watch a lot of movies, but the selection of movies is large. Not to mention, VUDU makes movies and shows available the day the DVD is released.

If quality is important to you, VUDU also offers what they call HDX quality video. This includes 1080p streaming with Dolby Digital Plus 7.1 surround sound. All available from a plethora of devices, and Chromecast is signed up to be the next in line!

VUDU coming to Chromecast


VUDU has just announced its Android and iOS apps will receive the Chromecast treatment in the next update. In addition, users will also be able to cast their VUDU videos straight from the browser, whether they are using a Mac or Windows computer.

The company didn’t give us an exact update release date, but they promise it will be “soon”.

I am especially excited to see VUDU coming to Chromecast. It’s one of the big streaming apps the Chromecast platform doesn’t support yet. It is already available in many smart TVs, BluRay players, consoles and mobile devices.

I’ll be glad to test it out and review it once it’s out. Are you guys looking forward to checking this one out?
