Over fifty Criterion Collection films have been added to the VUDU service, with more to come.

With a specialty in restoration and distribution of, as they put it, “important classic and contemporary films,” the Criterion Collection is a name well known by those with a love of cinema. Their DVD releases have long been praised for their excellence both in quality and in terms of the special treatments such as custom packaging, documentaries, and even commentaries added to classic films.

VUDU has announced the addition of over fifty of these films to their lineup including classics like Solaris, Grey Gardens, as well as films by the likes of Fritz Lang, James Ivory and Ingmar Bergman. Available now, these Criterion Collection films can be rented or purchased on any of the increasing number of devices that offer VUDU’s service.

Jonathan Turell, co-founder of Criterion Collection, says that the decision to go with VUDU was an easy one. “VUDU’s mission to deliver the highest quality cinematic experience to its customers is consistent with the Criterion Collection’s mission. We’ve been impressed with VUDU’s quality and are proud to make our films available to Criterion Collection fans on VUDU’s on-demand service.”
