I’ve received word that Pandora Internet radio streaming will be launching on Vudu in the very near future. This seems to be confirmed by a published, then yanked, post on CNET. (Also, swiped/syndicated here.) While I’m happy to see Vudu’s still got life and continues to expand box offerings beyond video purchases/rentals (aka Vudu Labs), I don’t see a lot of value in television-based music services. Despite my fondness for Pandora.
As you can see from my mole’s pic above, Home Movies are also in the works… enabling owners to stream H.264 video from PC, as I recently mentioned. At $150, the Vudu box is looking a whole lot more interesting these days. If they can hang on.
