On Saturday, December 4th at 12:01 a.m. the world (well, at least those who fight for either Edward or Jacob) will drop everything to get their hands a copy of the latest movie in the wildly popular Twilight saga - Twilight Eclipse. And included with every one of the DVDs and Blu-ray Discs sold at Walmart will be an offer for a $5 Movie Credit on VUDU.
That means customers can buy the physical copy and stream the digital copy directly to their VUDU enabled PS3, Blu-Ray Players, Connected TVs, or computers (via Boxee). Or, they can stream any other available movie on the service – there are over 4000 HD flicks to choose from, including the original Twilight and Twilight New Moon (for those who haven’t yet caught up on their romantic vampire sagas) or other hot new releases like Knight and Day, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World or Grown Ups.
This is the second major physical/digital offer VUDU and Walmart have introduced, the first being the DVD release of Toy Story 3 (To infinity and beyond! http://blog.vudu.com/?p=831). VUDU is focused on delivering a “watch anywhere” world where users aren’t limited by how they purchased their movie, but instead can enjoy an immersive cinema experience when they want, where they want.
Very cool! I may or may not have bought a Blu-Ray player on Black Friday just to watch Eclipse.
Thank you Meghan!
