Watch Movies On Your iPad Without Apps

“In its hunt to get on ever-more devices, Vudu is finally making its streaming video-on-demand (VOD) store available on the iPad. But while most streaming video services have launched apps on the tablet, Vudu is coming to market with a mobile web experience, in part so that it doesn’t have to share revenues with Apple.

Vudu’s recently launched an update to its website which extends availability of its streaming videos to web browsers, as well as connected TVs, Blu-ray players and game consoles. The mobile site for iPad, which is available today, is an extension of that initiative.

The iPad site is formatted specifically for the tablet, and allows users to watch movies they’ve already rented or bought wherever they are. The site takes advantage of Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) adaptive bit rate streaming to ensure video quality based on network conditions. However, like the normal website, Vudu streaming is only available in standard definition.”
