Walmart’s VUDU streaming movie service looks set to get an HDMI dongle of its own, with the new hardware spotted passing through FCC testing ahead of its retail launch.
The Spark connects to your WiFi network over an 802.11b/g/n connection, and then loads a Vudu app and prompts you to create a Vudu account or login to your account on first boot. After that, it should jump straight to the Vudu app.
At the current time Vudu has not announced or officially launched the new Vudu Spark HDMI dongle so not too much is known about the other features and specifications of the hardware, but earlier today a Vudu representative explained :
“At VUDU, we’re always looking at new ways for our customers to experience the movies and TV shows in their VUDU library. We’re developing a streaming stick and will share more information in the coming months, so stay tuned.”
For more information on the new Vudu HDMI stick before its officially launched by Walmart, jump over to the FCC website for details and documents on the new HDMI stick and its features. As soon as Walmart releases more information about the new Vudu Spark we will keep you updated as always.
