The first 3D streaming service is up and running, with what seems like fairly reasonable pricing.
Remember back when Walmart bought Vudu and it seemed like a bad omen? Sure, Vudu owners lost access to their smut, but they've traded it for the first 3D streaming service on the market. Worth it? That depends on you.
Vudu has just announced that 3D content is now available on the service. You can grab it in 1080p, 720p and standard definition - though who has a SD television that can handle current 3D standards?
Pricing varies by resolution, but you'll be looking at $5.99 for a 720p rental and $6.99 for a 1080p rental. That's higher by their normal $4.99 HD rental pricing, but not by much. To buy a film, you'll be paying $21.99 instead of $19.99.
There are only three 3D titles available now, but more are on the way. In the meantime, you can check out 'Bolt,' 'Chicken Little' and 'Meet the Robinsons' in 3D on Vudu now.
