This summer, Vudu will allow its users to rent blockbuster movies – new and old – for just 99 cents each.

The new movie channel is called 99 for 99, and the company’s editorial team selected 99 blockbuster films, each available to rent for 99 cents. New films will be rotated into the channel to ensure that new hits are always available throughout the year, Vudu said.

The Extended Rental for $0.99 service will allow users to renew any standard-definition (SD) video rental for just 99 cents within seven days of first viewing a film. The rental of high-definition (HD) movies can be extended for $1.99.

Vudu enables high-speed broadband customers to get instant access through their TV to video entertainment, including HD movies, more than 1,000 television episodes, and more than 6,000 movies from major studios and independent distributors. The company delivers movies directly to consumers' homes as they are released by the studios on DVD, and it maintains an up-to-date library of new releases and classic movies.
