With a library of up to 10,000 movies, Vudu boasts a vast collection of movies and shows you can binge for free. The Walmart-owned streaming service streams free content and allows subscribers to purchase the latest movies.
Despite its vast movie lineup, none of them comprises new blockbusters. Instead, it’s a selection of the best content, usually superior to other free streaming services. It has recent movie titles like Four Weddings, The Prestige, a Funeral, Hoosiers, and All is Lost. And unlike other free streaming services, Vudu plans to produce original shows like Albedo with Evangeline Lilly, a sci-fi series.
We found Vudu pretty easy to use. Free content and that available for purchase are marked. You can filter content based on your preferences, too- an option available to free titles only. As for the ads, we found them a little annoying as they were incredibly repetitive. Sometimes you need to choose an option to continue watching content.
For the best viewing quality, Vudu recommends an internet streaming speed of 11 Mbps. Upon testing it at lower rates we found the streaming provider down-sized the streaming signal to 1080p or lower automatically. We also realized it was necessary to use a physical Ethernet connection for internet connection, even if your compatible streaming device has a built-in WiFi port.
Having expanded its lineup of free content recently, Vudu performs pretty well compared to other free streaming services. It rotates its movie and shows collection regularly, allowing you to binge on old and new titles. It also added a recommendation feature that helps users find movies and shows based on the most recent watches.
Vudu lives up to the hype. With more than 5,000 available for free, it makes the best streaming service for on-demand content. What’s more, switching to another service is pretty easy as Vudu doesn’t have a sign up process.
