Vudu Significantly Upgrades Set-Top Boxes

Posted Fri Oct 15, 2010 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The dedicated Vudu set-tops will now match the capabilities of Vudu on other devices.

The Vudu set-top box was launched with much excitement, but was then seemingly forgotten by Vudu. Now that the service is available on Blu-ray players, televisions, and home theater systems, there hasn't been a lot of help for the early adopters.

Thankfully, the latest update brings Vudu set-top boxes up to date with the capabilities of less dedicated hardware platforms. You'll now have access to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook as well as the ability to watch previews.

The biggest addition is of course the ability to stream HDX movies instead of waiting for them to download. All you need is a 4.5mbps connection speed and you're ready to go.
