VUDU gets Flickr, Pandora, Picasa, other apps
VUDU on Thursday announced that it has brought brought three key Internet apps to VUDU-enabled TVs. These are the same apps that were already available on the VUDU box and include Picasa, Flickr, Pandora, a free TV on-demand service and a few simple games. VUDU says it brought these apps to the TVs from its partners due to popular demand.
VUDU added that it will release more Internet applications within the next few months, but is asking users to vote for their favorites in order to decide which ones will get precedence.
Despite the announcement, only VUDU-enabled Mitsubishi TVs and the VUDU box will get the new applications at the present time, with LG's VUDU-compatible TVs not getting the apps for unnamed reasons.
