Vudu preps Chromecast launch

Walmart-owned online VOD store Vudu is set to launch soon on Google’s HDMI TV streaming device Chromecast. 

Announcing the move, Vudu said Chromecast beta testers can sign up now for the service, which will be available with the updated Android and iOS apps, as well as through the Chrome browser for PC and Mac.

“We’re on hundreds of devices, from smart TVs to smart phones, and support both PCs and Macs. Soon, watching will be even easier with Vudu on Chromecast,” the firm said.

The news comes a month after Google released a software developer kit for Chromecast, opening it up to companies and developers that want to launch their content on the platform.

The streaming dongle launched in the states last June, and though it is currently not available internationally, Google is rumoured to be preparing to launch the device in Europe and elsewhere.
