"Our launch of 3D today is another example of our commitment to deliver the best home entertainment experience available anywhere. There is no better, easier way to get 3D movies at home than through the VUDU Service."

"The biggest obstacle for the 3D market in the home in the past was the lack of 3D content, where buyers just weren't interested in a feature they couldn't use," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst for Enderle Group. "VUDU delivering 3D streaming content directly addresses this challenge and allows consumers who want to enjoy a major advance in home televisions."

VUDU's 3D title selection will be automatically available on any device that is enabled for VUDU 3D, in standard definition 480p, 720p and full HD 1080p. The VUDU Streaming Movie Service provides customers with access to the world’s largest catalog of more than 4,000 on-demand HD movies.
