Walmart to Introduce VUDU Spark HDMI Stick

By |


Vudu-Spark.jpgGigaOM and other outlets are reporting that Walmart plans to introduce a VUDU-equipped HDMI stick that will allow consumers to easily add the streaming VOD service to a non-networkable HDTV. There's no word yet on pricing or what other apps (if any) the stick will offer.

Add Walmart to the list of companies that's trying to sell you a Chromecast-like HDMI streaming stick: The retail giant's Vudu streaming service is getting ready to unveil a HDMI stick dubbed Vudu Spark that is meant to -- surprise -- give users access to Vudu. The stick popped up in the FCC database this week, which tends to be a good sign that a release is imminent.

A Vudu spokesperson confirmed plans to release the device, sending me the following statement via email:

"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."

The filing, which was done on behalf of the device's South Korean manufacturer Inktel Corporation, comes with a bunch of unredacted details, including photos of the device as well as a user manual that describes the pretty straightforward functionality of the Spark streaming stick.
