Vudu Wireless Kit

Vudu, the maker of a self-named video streaming set-top, has released a new upgrade for its system called the Wireless Kit. The add-on enables users to download movies and TV shows via wireless Internet rather than an Ethernet cable, a factor which may be crucial given the distance of many TVs from routers and computers. Competitors such as the Apple TV and the Roku already have Wi-Fi.

The Vudu kit consists of a base station and a receiver, the former of which connects to a router, the latter plugging directly into the set-top. It operates over 802.11g, and is said to have a simple plug-and-play setup. As a separate upgrade, the kit costs $79; Vudu is however offering it as part of a discounted bundle, in which a set-top and the Kit ship together for $349.
