After entering into an agreement for FandangoNOW to purchase Vudu in April 2020, the two companies announced that they are uniting today to form a bigger and better platform on Vudu.
When the services are combined, Vudu will replace
FandangoNOW as the official movie and TV store on Roku where Roku users can
rent or buy titles to stream.
“Consumer excitement for premium video on-demand has
grown significantly as users turn to streaming to access the latest movies and
TV show releases,” said Tedd Cittadine, Vice President, Content
Partnerships, Roku. “We’re thrilled to continue our long-standing
partnership with Fandango as we build a future where all TV will be streamed by
creating a seamless experience for users to discover and enjoy premium video
The new Vudu will have a library of over 200,000 movie and
TV titles to rent or buy, including the largest collection of 4K UHD titles and
thousands of titles to watch for free. The service will continue to offer new releases
like “F9: The Fast Saga,” Pixar’s “Luca,” “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do
It,” “Peter Rabbit 2,” “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” “A Quiet Place Part
II,” Disney’s “Cruella,” “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “In the Heights” and more.
Arriving next Tuesday on Vudu is Marvel Studios’ “Black Widow.”
“At Fandango, we’ve been building a digital network that
super-serves tens of millions of fans across the entire entertainment
lifecycle, from movie and TV discovery with Rotten Tomatoes, to our three
theatrical ticketing apps and now an even larger scale Vudu on-demand streaming
destination,” said Fandango President Paul Yanover. “During a time where
consumers have a myriad of viewing options, we’re proud to deliver a service that
presents an unparalleled library of content, many titles that are not available
on subscription services, and the flexibility to pay as you go.”
Beginning today, FandangoNOW customers can transfer their
accounts and movie and TV collections to Vudu. After the transfer, user
libraries can be accessed through Vudu. The Movie Store and TV Store on Roku
devices will automatically update from FandangoNOW to the new Vudu.
