VUDU Movie Player Now $149

New Price Puts World’s Largest HD Library and Highest Quality On-Demand Picture in Reach of Wide Consumer Market

VUDU, Inc., a leading provider of digital technologies and services that deliver entertainment over the Internet to consumers’ HDTVs and Home Theaters, today said it has lowered the price of its on-demand Internet movie player to just $149. Available at Best Buy, audio video retailers, and online, VUDU HD is the only solution on the market to deliver weekly new releases from all the major studios, the largest HD library, the highest quality HD picture quality with HDX, local movie storage and the ability to access popular Internet content directly on the TV.

“We are reaping the rewards of success in the retail channel over the holidays, lower component prices and higher movie revenues. The combination of these factors has enabled us to lower the price of VUDU and bring it within reach of more consumers,” said Edward Lichty, VUDU’s EVP of Strategy. “This is exciting news for the Internet to TV content delivery market. In just a year, we’ve been able to drive down the price of the product by 50 % while increasing image and sound quality, growing our content library to more than 13,000 movies and TV shows, building the world’s largest HD library of more than 1,300 titles, and providing access to free Internet content.”

In addition to the VUDU HD, the company said it is reducing the price of VUDU XL, VUDU’s home theater product sold through professional custom installers, to $499. The new VUDU XL bundle, which can store five hundred purchased movies, will also include at no extra cost a home theater connectivity software package that previously retailed for over $100. VUDU’s no-hassle wireless kit, available at Best Buy, other retailers, and at www.vudu.com, has also been reduced to $79.

In the past year the company has achieved a number of milestones and introduced several groundbreaking features and service enhancements. The company secured a nationwide distribution agreement with Best Buy, announced the largest HD library in the world and introduced the pioneering HDX format, which offers the highest quality picture of any on-demand service.

The company also recently launched the VUDU RIA platform, an open platform that can bring Internet content, from video, music and photos to games to social networking applications, directly to the TV, all easily accessible using your VUDU remote control with no need for a PC.
