Dolby Vision on Vudu

Vudu started streaming the first movies in Dolby Vision and Atmos in October 2015. With today’s news, titles from Universal are added to the library.

- “We’re thrilled to partner with UPHE to deliver these exciting titles with the breathtaking color, deep contrast, and striking highlights that customers have come to expect from Dolby Vision. Combined with Dolby Atmos immersive audio, Universal titles such as “Lucy” and “Oblivion” have never looked—or sounded—better,” said Curt Behlmer, SVP, Content Solutions and Industry Relations, Dolby Laboratories. “As more Dolby Vision enabled displays hit the market, streaming partners like VUDU make Dolby’s next-generation imaging technology easier to experience than ever before.”

Dolby Vision


Dolby Vision is Dolby’s premium HDR format that combines UHD resolution with HDR (high dynamic range) and wide color gamut, and an alternative to the open HDR10 format. Atmos is Dolby’s object-based audio technology. Universal’s movies were also released in select cinemas – so-called Dolby Cinemas – in the new video and audio formats.

The first Universal titles to feature Dolby Vision are ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’, ‘Lucy’, ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Lone Survivor’. Lucy and Oblivion will also feature Dolby Atmos audio.

- “At VUDU, we’re committed to providing customers with the best possible home entertainment experience, and partnering with Dolby on HDR delivers on that promise,” said Scott Blanksteen, Vice President of Product, VUDU. “We’re excited to add these new Universal titles to our library and offer customers the largest selection of premium HDR movies of any digital service.”

Netflix and Amazon are also offering select movies and TV series in Dolby Vision but not with Atmos sound. There are no UHD Blu-ray players or discs available in Dolby Vision.

The movies are available for purchase and rental on Vudu now. Vudu typically charges around $10 per rental and $25 and up for a purchase.
