Wal-Mart to possibly Acquire Vudu

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. That is a motto apparently very well known over at Wal-Mart, where they are supposedly in talks to acquire movie streaming service from Vudu. I always liked Vudu but just felt their selection and pricing weren’t in fit with my needs, but having a powerhouse like Wal-Mart behind them can’t hurt there. We’ve heard about Vudu being integrated into more TV sets and a deal like this could only increase that number.

Sources tell me Web video start-up Vudu is in “meaningful” acquisition discussions, and industry executives believe Wal-Mart is the likely buyer. Vudu executives declined to comment. I’ve lobbed a call into the Wal-Mart (WMT) press center but haven’t heard back.
