Vudu Adds Automation Features To Its $999 Vudu XL
Remember that $999 Vudu XL set-top box we told you about back during CES 2008? Well, Vudu has announced partnerships with Control 4, Crestron, Logitech, NetStreams, Philips, Universal Electronics, and Universal Remote Control, which will allow the control companies to integrate its products into the Vudu XL. So far no specific products have been announced, but "control codes will be made available in programming tools and databases for Logitech Harmony Advanced remotes, Philips Prestigo and Pronto lines, Universal's Nevo Controllers and URC's Custom Professional products".
The Vudu XL, only available through authorized dealers, features a slate of more than 5000 standard-def and 100 high-def movies on-demand for rental or purchase. This is the latest announcement in a big push lately by Vudu to gain market share in the set-top box market.
