The Walmart-owned Vudu is bringing its video streaming services to mobiles and tablets through a new app that will let you purchase and watch them on your favorite Android devices. The new Vudu app, which can be downloaded now and for free from the Google Play Store will also earn you up to ten free movie downloads to new customers–and the best news? You won’t need to enter payment information to get those downloads.
Both standard definition and high definition content is available, however keep in mind that HD content generally costs more than its standard definition brethren. The addition of the Android app comes to the already large device streaming family that Vudu is available on. The Apple iPad and a slew of Roku set-top-boxes are also supported, in addition to video game consoles like the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft’s Xbox 360.
For those with a computer you can also stream content through supported web-browsers. The big news though is the ability to take your Vudu movies on the go with your Android device. As an incentive to register your device with the service Vudu will offer you a $5.99 credit for each device you register, however to earn this credit you will need to register your Android smartphone.
After completing your sign-up form through Vudu you will be presented with several free movies which include classics such as “Lethal Weapon,” “Psycho,” “Big Trouble In Little China,” and “The Producers” among several others. To download the new app just navigate to the Google Play Store on your Android device.
