You may have heard of Vudu, which is one of the best video-on-demand service. Its strength has always been that movies start right away and the quality is awesome. However, you still needed a beefy Internet connection (3Mbps, I think) and this is not convenient for folks who have a slow broadband connection, or those who are offline while traveling.
Vudu-to-go aims at fixing this and extend the Vudu service to more people. It lets Vudu customers download movies (from vudu.com) and watch them later, without requiring broadband access. The fee structure is the same than streaming movies, so this is truly a supplement that broadens the product’s horizon.
To make it even easier (and to gain further market share), Vudu has worked with HP to integrate Vudu in PCs and Laptops sold at Walmart. If you didn’t know, Vudu has been purchased by Walmart on Feb 22 2010 and the giant retailer seems to be using its muscles to preload Vudu on computers.
