VUDU users can now boldly go where no one has gone before... in Dolby Vision!
VUDU has announced the addition of 'Star Trek Beyond' to its digital streaming service. The film is now available for sale and download directly from vudu.com or from the app on mobile devices, set-top boxes, and nearly all Smart TV's. Likewise, the Ultra HD stream features Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos immersive audio. This marks the first Paramount movie to hit VUDU in Ultra HD, and more Paramount 4K titles are expected to be added soon.
Dolby Vision uses HDR (high dynamic range) and expanded colors to offer enhanced contrast and picture on supported displays -- including VIZIO's 2016 P-Series and M-Series, as well as LG's 2016 OLED and SUPER UHD lineup. Meanwhile, Dolby Atmos is an immersive, object-based audio technology that allows users to add overhead audio to supported sound systems.
In addition to content from Paramount, VUDU also offers a growing collection of digital movies with Dolby Vision from Warner Bros., Universal, and MGM, including titles like 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,' 'The Gallows,' 'Entourage,' 'San Andreas,' 'American Sniper,' 'Man of Steel,' 'Jupiter Ascending,' 'Pan,' 'We Are Your Friends,' 'Pacific Rim,' 'Edge of Tomorrow,' 'Into the Storm,' 'The Legend of Tarzan,' 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,' 'Warcraft,' 'Lucy,' and 'Oblivion.'
