What is Vudu, and how can I watch it?

Vudu was developed way back in 2004 with a hardware box only available via Best Buy stores, providing on-demand rentals and digital film purchases. In 2010 it phased out its hardware, concentrating on its delivery via its apps, available over all the usual platforms as well as most major brands of Smart TVs.

It was also in 2010 when Walmart acquired Vudu, making its entry into the on-demand video sales and streaming market. The relationship only recently ended, with Fandango Media (a subsidiary of NBCUniversal) buying the company in July of this year (2020).

It’s known to have over 24,000 titles in its current catalogue, with over 8,000 of them being TV series.

What’s different about Vudu is its mix of pay and free TV services. There are on-demand payment prices for TV shows and movies, to rent or to download and keep, but also, masses of free viewing is available for its members to take advantage of. It creates a great bridge between subscription-based and free service viewing.

What can you watch on Vudu? Well, you’ll find everything from Hollywood blockbusters, kids’ TV, and indie films, to documentaries, anime, musicals and everything in between.

There’s no shortage of options given that Vudu has licensing relationships with all of the major studios and over 50 independent producers too.

So, if you’re looking for free viewing—including classics like Bruce Lee’s Fist of Fury, Charlize Theron in Monster, Brad Pitt in Troy, or even one of the greatest horror movies of all time, The Exorcist, Vudu has got you covered.

And with all the new paid-for releases available on Vudu far faster than they ever will on Netflix or Hulu, surely, this is a service everyone should have loaded into their TVs and different viewing devices?

How can I watch Vudu with StreamLocator?

To watch Vudu, you need to be in the USA, so, that’s exactly where StreamLocator makes their servers think you are.

How to watch Vudu from outside the USA

To make sure its viewers are in the United States, Vudu uses what’s known as geo-location tracking to pinpoint each user’s connection.

VPN and Smart DNS provide the sort of virtual locations that allow you to access geo-blocked content; using those, you’ll need to download and install software or create new DNS settings and profiles on every device you want to watch your Vudu content.

How to register for Vudu from outside the USA

Registering for a Vudu account is simple. It’s free to join, and all you need is an email address. You will need a payment method that is accepted in the US to pay for your chargeable content, but if you’re having problems, you can pay with a prepaid US credit card like StatesCard or Walmart gift cards.

These popular methods of workaround provide the virtual locations that help to get around the Vudu location blocks.

Both solutions work in slightly different ways, with different services offering varying levels of success for both access and playback. The advantage of StreamLocator’s smart hub is that it automatically connects to the Vudu servers to find out which is the best technology to bypass those blocks.

Using a choice of technologies, your smart hub decides which is the best method and organizes its application automatically. There’s no switching location and no changes to your settings. It’s all done without you even noticing.

Once you’ve got that sorted, you’ll find a new network on your WiFi options—STREAMLOCATOR. Whichever device you want to use to watch Vudu, simply switch over to your new network and that’s that! Access is granted automatically, and streaming can commence!
