    Sony Network Operations Americas VP Eric Lempel has announced that as of today you can officially stream HD movies instantly with the VUDU PS3 application and shared a video walkthrough below!

    To quote: Last week, we announced a partnership with [Register or Login to view links] that will bring you the ability to stream thousands of movies straight from the cloud to your PlayStation 3.

    Today, that announcement becomes reality as the VUDU application launches in the United States on PlayStation Network. VUDU delivers a cinema-quality movie experience in the comfort of your home theater, complete with full 1080p HD with 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus sound, and video on-demand without downloading.

    No subscription is necessary to browse their library of more than 4,000 HD movies, including many new releases the same day they are released to DVD and Blu-ray.

    The movies are available on-demand and you only pay for the movies that you watch. Also, when you sign up for a VUDU account, you will receive a $5.99 credit on your account for one free HD rental.

    Check out the video walkthrough:





    The VUDU app adds to the vast amount of entertainment available through PlayStation Network, including movies and TV shows via [Register or Login to view links] and Hulu Plus as well as live sports with [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links].

    To download the free VUDU app, go to the media category in the PlayStation Store. Once downloaded, the app will appear under the video icon in your XMB.

    Also - VUDU recently unveiled their new UI, VUDU 2.0, at a recent press event, and if you download the app, it will automatically refresh on your PS3 when it launches next month. VUDU 2.0 will also offer PlayStation Move compatibility for easy to use motion control navigation.

    Why the hell are they charging by a per movie basis? They better just do a monthly membership fee like Netflix with unlimited streaming. Charging per movie is old school, like a retail blockbuster. No one wants to pay that much anymore.

    I agree. 6 bucks per movie is not even competitive with other rental/VOD options.

    $5.99 a movie, that is highway robbery as i can get movies on demand from my isp provider for less cost.. somebody sure wants to make money but they sure won't do it by charging that kinda fee per movie.
