Vudu Comes to LG BD390 Blu-ray Player, Other Players Bow Down

We had a feeling the LG BD390 was poised to have the Vudu service added to it. This was because for the last week or two, the Vudu Logo had been displayed on the BD390 page of LG’s website. So when the press release from Vudu hit our inbox, we did a face palm…. kicking ourselves for not posting a story last week about the Vudu logo on the website.

In any case, this news is great for BD390 owners, and should solidify the BD390′s spot as the most feature rich Blu-ray player at ANY Price Point.

Lets go over the goods,  the BD390 has Netflix Streaming, Cinemanow, YouTube, Vudu, plays back MKVs via USB/Disc/Network and is fine Blu-ray disc player. Ohh wait, it also has 7.1 Analogs and 802.11N wireless built in.

One thing does bother us about Vudu coming to the BD390….. We have no use for our stand alone Vudu box… Looks like we might have found our next FWC giveaway item!

    So the LG BD390 can do everything a regular vudu box does? If so, that will slow sales of the Vudu box considerably.

    Re: Vudu
    I know that our Best Buy store has had trouble selling any of the Vudu hardware. I guess it still isn’t well-known to the public, at least not in the semi-ghetto region where we’re from. It’s too bad really because I think Vudu looks like a cool product, especially the movies from their HDX collection.

    Re: LG BD390
    I’m not a salesperson at our store but I’ll pass the info along to BBY employees about the LG BD390. Also the ability to play .MKV files is looking good, maybe I’ll try it out one day. Thanks!
