Nowadays, people have more and more choices to enjoy their beloved movies, and their standard for movie enjoyment is becoming higher and higher. We used to go to theaters to watch movies until we got used to watching movies online; We used to view 2D movies only until 3D movies were invented. 3D movies used to be only available in the theater, and now, they can be acquired online too. As a popular video online streaming service, Vudu has a 3D service that can be acquired by its users. What are Vudu 3D movies? How to get 3D movies on Vudu? Today we will find out together about Vudu 3D movie services.
Part 1: About Vudu
Similar to Netflix, Vudu, Inc. is an American content delivery and media technology company responsible for Vudu-branded interactive media services and devices. Vudu is home to many full-length movies over the Internet to televisions in the United States of America and Canada. To achieve this, it utilizes a content delivery network that uses a hybrid peer-to-peer TV technology.
VUDU delivers a cinema-like experience at home with the hottest new releases and the largest HD library. Vudu 3D movies are a big feast to movie lovers nowadays.
Part 2: What you need to get 3D movies on Vudu
Vudu has been known for high-quality video and audio delivery with its HDX format, which rivals the quality of Blu-ray discs. This is amazing when you consider that the media is streaming to your device in a digital format rather than physical media. Of course, the 3D effects are only as good as the 3D effects of a Blu-ray disc. With a few exceptions, most 3D creates a behind-the-screen depth rather than out-of-the-TV action. Disney’s “The Christmas Carol” is an example where twirling snowflakes indeed floated out into the room.
Anyway, to get those 3D movies on Vudu, there are some preparations
you need to do ahead of time, which means, you can’t just simply watch a Vudu 3D movie on your PC. Instead, you need something else to watch Vudu 3D movies.
A Vudu app can be found on 3D Samsung and LG smart TVs and Blu-ray disc players, and on Smart TVs and home theater components from other makers. For more info, you can check the VUDU’s device page. Here is everything you need to complete setup for access to VUDU 3D.
1. A 3D capable TV or video projector
2. 3D glasses. You can buy one or DIY 3D glasses yourself.
3. High-speed HDMI cable. High speed is required because you need it to handle 3D signals.
4. A device with the Vudu 3D app. You have to make sure that your device does support Vudu app installation.
5. Vudu account. There is no subscription fee; you will pay about $3.99 to $7.99 to rent and view full-length movies, but previews are free.
6. Internet connection. With speeds over 9 Mb/s.

No that you have prepared everything you need to acquire 3D movies on Vudu, next thing is to actually get the 3D movie playing. Here are the detailed steps of how you can get Vudu 3D movies:
First, go to the Vudu main page and set up your account. Once you have done that (or if you have an account already), and, depending on your TV or device, Highlight Movies, then click on Showcases, click on 3D and then choose a movie or preview that is labeled “3D”. Be noted that on some TVs and devices, after highlighting movies, you may need to click on Collections, then Showcases before selecting 3D. The specific steps depend on your device module.
Also, if you don’t see the 3D listings, you can also go into Search and type 3D and a listing of available 3D movie titles will appear on the screen – As you click on each title there will be a notice that the 3D version is only available for those that have a 3D TV. Again, your device module decides the specific steps you need to follow, but the general idea to get Vudu 3D movies is identical, and quite easy.
Vudu 3D streaming service is good, but it also has its disadvantages. To get Vudu 3D movies, you have to do all the preparations mentioned above, and that’s a lot of perorations to do.

All of that makes us wonder, is there another way to watch 3D movies that is easier, and cheaper? The answer is, yes, there is.
There is a way to watch 3D movies on PC. Instead of watching 3D movies online, which usually cost you money, you can download 3D movies from some 3D movies downloading sites and play them with a 3D-supported media player. VLC, for instance, is one of the good choices that are most recommended.
