Vizio adds Blockbuster on Demand, Hulu Plus
Vizio has announced today that they have added Hulu Plus and Blockbuster on Demand to their VIA (Vizio Internet Apps) Connected platform.

The U.S.' top LCD TV maker recently announced it was bringing its VIA platform to a tablet and smartphone, both firsts for the company.



Vizio currently offers popular services like Amazon Video On Demand, Netflix, Rhapsody, Pandora, Facebook and Yahoo Fantasy Football on its Web-connected platform.

The company was quick to note that you will still need to pay to use both services.

Blockbuster is free but you will need to register. The service offers rentals for $3-$4 and purchases from $6-$20 while Hulu Plus costs $8 per month.

In the near future, Vizio will be adding access to BigStar, MOG, OnLive, Skype and Vimeo, as well.

    Quote:Vizio has announced today that they have added Hulu Plus and Blockbuster on Demand to their VIA (Vizio Internet Apps) Connected platform. That should be really useful when blockbuster goes bust in a week and Hulu blocks the device because they fear it might hurt their ability to blackmail cable companies. Maybe they could add betamax support as well...
