Walmart’s VUDU service joins Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) as a participating retailer, further enhancing U.S. consumers’ ability to manage and enjoy their digital collections of Disney, Pixar, and Marvel movies at home and on the go.
Consumers who purchase eligible Disney, Pixar and Marvel titles in Walmart stores or digitally on VUDU can now take their movies anywhere when they unlock their digital copies and connect their Disney Movies Anywhere and VUDU accounts. With VUDU’s availability across a wide array of connected entertainment devices and smart TVs, Disney Movies Anywhere users will find it easier than ever to enjoy their movie collections from the comfort of their living room and across their devices and operating systems.
The launch coincides with the release of the sing-along edition of “Frozen,” the #1 animated film of all time, available digitally and as a special DVD plus digital copy for a limited time. Today also marks the early digital release of this year’s biggest domestic hit, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
“We’re thrilled to expand Disney Movies Anywhere with Walmart and VUDU,” said Janice Marinelli, President, Disney Studio In-Home and Digital Distribution & Disney-ABC Content Distribution. “In addition to its robust digital video service, Walmart is a top destination for Blu-ray and DVD purchases, and bringing Disney Movies Anywhere to VUDU enhances the value of those purchases to create an outstanding entertainment experience that consumers can take from their living room to their mobile devices.”
“Disney Movies Anywhere is arriving at Walmart and VUDU just in time for the holidays, making Walmart the leading destination where customers can buy the physical or digital versions of their favorite Disney, Pixar and Marvel titles and enjoy it anywhere,” said Jeremy Verba, general manager of VUDU, a Walmart company. “VUDU’s availability across in-home entertainment devices like smart TVs, Roku 3, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well as Apple and Android smartphones and tablets means Disney fans can now enjoy their movies on more devices than ever.”
Over 400 Disney, Pixar, and Marvel titles are currently available in Disney Movies Anywhere, and for a limited time, users who connect a new participating retailer account will receive a free digital copy of Disney’s hit animated film “Wreck-It Ralph.”
