Vudu says its tops in online HD content
Over the top video provider Vudu made a bold claim today when it said it now has the largest library of HD content available in on-demand mode.
As part of the same announcement, Vudu said it is now offering over 1,100 HD titles for instant, on-demand viewing.
To achieve this milestone, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company said it added on average over 150 HD titles per week in October.
"We're certainly proud to offer the largest HD library on the planet, but the motivation to accomplish this really sprang from our customers, retail partners and home theater installation professionals, all of whom were asking for more HD content," said Edward Lichty, Executive Vice President of Content at VUDU. "And this is only the beginning of our effort. We plan to maintain a leadership position in offering the best picture quality experience and the deepest library anywhere when it comes to HD."
Vudu said every HD movie streamed to its broadband-connected set-top boxes plays instantly on the TV without waiting for downloads or buffering, but customers need Internet bandwidth of 4Mbps or more for the service to work.
