What is VUDU UHD?
VUDU UHD is VUDU’s next generation, ultra-high definition movie format. VUDU UHD movies feature the most advanced technologies like 4K resolution, High Dynamic Range (‘HDR’) and Dolby Atmos Audio. Each represents a drastic leap forward in video and audio technology, and watching a movie with these technologies creates the premium entertainment experience that we call VUDU UHD.

What is 4K?
4K, or 4K Ultra HD, is a new video resolution technology that provides a picture with four times as many pixels as 1080p HDX resolution. The increased number of pixels helps create a sharper, more detailed and more lifelike viewing experience.

What is HDR and Dolby Vision?
HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and it is breakthrough video technology that drastically improves the viewing experience through improving picture brightness, contrast and color. VUDU UHD is built with HDR technology from Dolby called Dolby Vision™.

What is Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos® is audio technology that transports you from the ordinary into the extraordinary with breathtaking, multidimensional sound that fills your room and flows all around you.

Do I need special equipment to watch VUDU UHD?
Because VUDU UHD is based on the latest technologies, you do need newer devices and equipment to enjoy the full experience. However, even if you don’t have the latest TV or audio system, you still can watch these movies and TV shows in the best quality your devices support.

Note that if your 4K TV does not have Dolby Vision, or if you don’t have a Dolby Atmos system, you still can watch in 4K on an increasing number of approved devices. You can find a maintained list of devices that work with VUDU UHD on the VUDU forums.

What Internet speed do I need to watch VUDU UHD?
We recommend broadband Internet with a minimum 11 Mbps network connection.

What movies are in VUDU UHD?
If a movie is available in VUDU UHD, you’ll see the option to purchase or rent in VUDU UHD on the movie details page. You also see icons for 4K, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. If one of the icons is missing or greyed out, the titles does not have the feature or it is not enabled. You can also see a list of VUDU UHD movies in the VUDU UHD collection room.

I have a Roku 4 and a 4K TV but still can't watch in 4K!
Several things may be causing problems. 1) Your TV may not support HDCP 2.2 or it may not be enabled (on your Roku, this may show up as a purple screen). 2) Your Roku 4 may be set for 1080p output instead of 4K UHD. You can change this in the Roku 4 settings page.
