Walmart has bought Vudu. First off this is huge for Vudu. I have questioned some of their new releases in the past like the very expensive XL2 and high priced boxes. They were also going to have a very hard time competing with the big dogs for good deals. They cashed out with Walmart.
Walmart has had trouble with digital media in the past and I don’t think buying Vudu will help them. I hope for all the people that currently use Vudu that Walmart will continue to support the product. Who knows maybe Walmart will surprise me and the cheaper Vudu boxes will be a must have device.
