How to Install VUDU APK on Firestick Under 2 Minutes (2021)

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install and use Vudu on FireStick. The instructions in this guide work on all Fire TV devices, including FireStick 4K, FireStick Lite, FireStick 2nd Gen, Fire TV Cube, and more.

Vudu is a US-based streaming service and online video store that lets you rent or buy digital copies of movies, shows, and other videos.

What sets Vudu apart from other streaming services is that you do not need to pay any monthly subscription fee. You pay only for what you watch.

It has a huge collection of movies and shows. You can either rent or buy a digital copy of the video. The prices vary depending upon the content and streaming quality (HD or SD).

Vudu also has a huge collection of ad-supported, free content. It has dozens of movies and shows in various genres.

How to Sign up for Vudu to use on FireStick and other Devices

To use the Vudu streaming service, you need to sign up and create an account. However, you wouldn’t have to buy any subscription plan during the sign-up. Vudu is a rental service and not a subscription-based service.
