NYT: Vudu Casts Its Spell on Hollywood

The New York Times profiled Vudu, a Silicon Valley start-up preparing to launch a VOD set-box player this summer with the support of major Hollywood studios. According to the article, Vudu will leverage peer-to-peer technology to speed downloads. Anticipating the owner's likely content choices, Vudu will also pre-cache the openings to many movies in order to enable instant play. Vudu's content library is said to exceed 5,000 titles. The company is still in stealth-mode and has yet to announce its product.
