VUDU on-demand movies will be available on LG’s LH50 1080p LCD series and PS80 Plasma 1080p series with “NetCast Entertainment Access,” beginning next month.

The VUDU service allows consumers to instantly buy or rent from an extensive library of movies and TV titles, including catalog of more than 2,000 high-definition movies – with no monthly fees and without having to buy, install, or connect any additional hardware. Consumers will enjoy movies in VUDU’s unique HDX format, with Full HD 1080p resolution, plus Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 surround sound.

VUDU’s streaming movie service delivers a near-instant viewing experience – movies start immediately, including high definition HDX movies, and viewers can fast forward, rewind and browse chapters without the delays or the frustration associated with slow buffering. The VUDU catalog is updated weekly, and newly released movies from major studios are typically available months before they are available on subscription-based services.
