VUDU is Now Renting and Selling TV Shows

Posted Thu May 5, 2011 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Unfortunately, many of the shows are only available in standard definition.

If you're an avid VUDU user, you'll be happy to know that the service is now offering television shows as part of its selection. You might be a bit unhappy, though, when you find out that many of the shows are only offered in standard definition.

The catalog update brings titles like 'Modern Family,' 'Glee,' 'Weeds' and AMC's 'The Walking Dead,' based on the comic book series of the same name.

The VUDU interface has been updated to make picking up shows simpler. You can sort by individual network or search by show as normal. They've also enabled a new feature that allows you to buy entire seasons at once.

The folks at Engadget did a little comparison shopping and recommend that you do the same. While 'The Walking Dead' is actually a really good deal, buying season six of 'Weeds' will set you back more than the Blu-ray.
