Netflix. Google Play Movies. Hulu Plus. What do these services have in common? They’re all better than VUDU, a long-standing streaming service for movies and television whose Android app leaves something to be desired. But it’s a little more desirable starting today, as a reader tipped us: VUDU now allows users to stream rented or owned movies and TV to a handy Chromecast.
VUDU didn’t mention this in the app update text on the Play Store, and there are no peeks at the familiar Chromecast button in the screenshots.
