Good News! Vudu is coming to the Apple TV but there is a catch…
Yesterday at the WWDC conference it was announced that Amazon is coming to the Apple TV this summer. Yet it seems that was not the only big Apple TV news.
Vudu has also announced that they will be releasing a Vudu app for the Apple TV sometime this year.
Here is the announcement:
There’s a lot going on just north of us in the city of San Francisco. Big stuff. Important stuff. And announcements. Lots of announcements. So we’ve decided to share one of our own.
In honor of all things Apple today, we thought we’d share a couple of screens from our Apple TV app that’s in development. We want to bring you the best possible app and Vudu experience, so we’re still tweaking and fine-tuning – but stay tuned for a fall release.
The downside is from the screen shots it looks like you won’t be able to buy anything on the Apple TV Vudu app. It looks like you will need to buy your Vudu movies and TV show on a computer or Roku and view them on your Apple TV.
We still don’t know if the Amazon Apple TV app will allow users to buy or rent movies and TV shows through the Apple TV Amazon app. From looking at the Vudu app it makes us wonder if the Amazon app will also be limited.
No date has been set for when the Vudu app will hit the Apple TV we will make a post when we see it live.
