Video streaming service Vudu has launched its official Android app, enabling on-demand streaming of movies on Android tablets running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or later. The new Vudu app debuts with the option to stream a film or download it to watch when an internet connection is not available. Browsing the library is easy thanks to detailed listings of the synopsis, cast and crew, reviews, and rating information. It also includes aggregated critic scores from Rotten Tomatoes and a two-minute video preview of each film.
Vudu gives customers the option to rent a movie to watch it one time or pay more to own it and view it multiple times. It also provides free access to UltraViolet Digital Collection of movies that have already been purchased on DVD or Blu-Ray. Vudu provides a bonus $5.99 in purchasing credits when users sign-up new devices, and the same deal applies when connecting a Vudu account to a Smart TV, Xbox 360, or Blu-Ray player.
