Google has announced that Walmart -owned Internet movie delivery service VUDU is now available on its Google Fiber TV service.

Writing in the Google fibre blog, Sarthak Ray, Google Fiber Product Manager, writes: “If you’re looking for a specific movie or TV show to watch tonight, chances are increasingly good that you’ll be able to find it using your Google Fiber TV service.

Yesterday, we launched VUDU right on our Fiber TV Box. VUDU is an on-demand video service that subscribers can use to rent or purchase movies and TV shows — and combined with Netflix and our Google Fiber Video on Demand Library, Google Fiber customers now have access to one of the largest on-demand collections of movies and TV Shows. You can access all of this great content under the ‘More’ tab on our TV menu.

We’re also updating the Google Fiber mobile app to support VUDU — now it will be easier than ever to search for, discover and watch thousands of movies and shows on your Android or iPhone,” he advises.

Kansas City, Kansas was the first community where Google deployed its network, with options including a 1 Gbps Internet option that includes television service for $120 per month. The network was subsequently rolled out to Kansas City, Missouri, with plans underway for a further expansion to several other Kansas City area suburbs, as well as Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah.
