Vudu 2.0 reaches most devices

Vudu started the weekend by rolling out its 2.0 interface on most all devices. Following the PS3 and Boxee Box updates, Blu-ray players and Internet-linked TVs now get the same simplified interface and optimizations for HD and newer controllers when they appear. It now recommends movies based on the viewing history and theoretically gives faster access to movies.

Hardware from LG and other Vudu-supporting designers will get the update automatically. Samsung and Vizio TVs don't have the update yet but will get it "soon." Video prices are unchanged with the makeover and start with a $2 for two rental promo up to $6 for an HD rental and varying prices for full purchases.

    I found this interesting comparison between Roku, Apple TV and Boxee Box that is based on analysis of hundreds of their customer reviews. You and your readers may be interested to see this analysis as well at http://tinyurl.com/amp4dmr . You can also check reputation of other products if you go to http://www.amplifiedanalytics.com/V2P-Product-Reviews/Demo, enter the product name or number (like "Samsung LN55C650"), select offered choice, and click on "Submit" button. The system will aggregate and analyze customer reviews to calculate the reputation metrics for you and will let you read the reviews if you want to.
