You Know What We Really Need? Another Streaming Video Service

By Gary Cutlack on at

Just in case you're not already causing your entire exchange to grind to a halt thanks to all the video streaming you've been up to with Netflix and LoveFilm, there'll soon be another online film rental option available, from US retail giant Walmart.

Walmart currently runs the Vudu media delivery system in the US, where it offers a "same day" video launch service that matches DVD and Blu-ray releases, complete with the usual collection of tablet, internet TV and game console streaming apps.

And "parts of Europe" be getting Vudu later in 2012, according to reports in Variety. The good thing about Vudu is its HD catalogue, which is claims to be filled with the highest number of 1080p streaming titles available. Given the lack of HD stream options in the UK, it ought to give the competition a good kick up the arse. [Variety via Inquisitr]
