    Will Vudu ever update their native 3D HDTV app?

    I have two 3D HDTVs (Sharp and Mitsubishi), both with built-in native Vudu app but none capable of playing 3D content from Vudu library. Not only that, Vudu app doesn't even support subtitles.

    Will they ever support these native apps by updating them?

    This type of this has been discussed many times. Just because the source material (Vudu) is available in 3D and the display device supports 3D you still have to have source equipment (media player - built in to TV or 3D blu-ray) as well.

    In other words there are plenty of 3D blu-ray players out there that have Vudu, Netflix, etc but neither Vudu nor any of the apps can play 3D. This is not because Vudu is lazy. There can often be many reason. One being that the blu-ray manufacturer doesn't want to or can't give them access to the 3D circuity. Either due to hardware design, licensing, etc.

    As a rule the majority of 3D TVs and 3D Blu-Ray players don't have or allow their streaming web apps to play 3D content.

    Likewise you'll also notice the same thing with sound. Some Vudu apps come up 7.1 while others come up 5.1. Again a limitation usually imposed on them by the hardware manufacturer.

      ....Well that's a shame that there are all these 3D capable hardware but the companies are doing everything in their power to not allow playing 3D video.

      In that case at least update the app so that I can get subtitles or would that also be asking too much

        It's probably nothing to do with intentionally trying to avoid allowing 3D playback. More than likely it's cost cutting in that the media playback hardware that they choose to integrate doesn't have the proper power, chipsets, licenses, etc.

        This is why there's different grades of equipment. Just because something is called a sports car, and looks like a sports car, and handles better than most cars doesn't mean it's capable of going out in a race on a track with professional cars.

        Likewise sometimes people want a 3D bluray player to just play 3D blurays. Other people wants a 3d bluray player to play 3d blurays AND stream 3D movies. The great thing is there's a different box for both of those people. The bad thing is that those people need to know which box they want for the future now and be able to figure it out themselves.

        Companies make different products for different markets.

        As for subtitles I'm surprised that the Vudu apps, nor the TV allow proper subtitles. I would call the 800 Vudu customer support number on that one.

          I'm now using Roku3 and the Vudu channel is much more responsive but unfortunately no 3D support for Vudu on Roku3, what a shame

              As mentioned in the previous post even though it's a 3D display doesn't mean that the hardware that the apps run off is capable of supporting 3D or that the TV manufacturer allows Vudu to support 3D on their hardware. This may be simply due to technical limitations.

              Example: there are tons of 3D blu-ray players out there and they play 3D blu-rays just fine. However, the apps run off different circuits than the blurays (think like a Blu-Ray and Roku in one box that just switches between two).

              I've seen loads of these 3D Blu-ray players that simply don't support 3D Vudu, 3D Netflix, or any other streaming; simply because they skimped on the streaming player portion of the hardware. TV's are in the same bag.

              As for subtitles that can be as simple as Vudu can only support so many devices so the code has to be written for the LEAST common element. In other words there are probably only a few different builds spread across hundreds of different devices. Much like computers if the install base is too low or the hardware is simply outdated they spend their resources updating the latest stuff.

              This is common in many industries if you want something newer or better you'll have to buy new at some point. Upgrading is only supported for so long.

                For closed caption support, all CE partners were provided with a VUDU update to support them. According to FCC rules, any device sold after a certain date (can't remember offhand, but maybe 9/30/13?) needs to have streaming CC support.

                Some manufacturers did publish firmware updates for devices older than that, but generally the older the device is the less likely they will update it (except for devices like game consoles and STBs that get updates more frequently).

                  FYI: It isn't 3D circuity, it is the software libraries (higher level).

                  A 3D blu-ray player with apps already has the libraries installed for 3D, but the manufacturer didn't necessarily share them with normal apps. In this case and others, a third-party app can be created with it's own (possibly using redundant/duplicate like for 3D blu-ray players) libraries, but some features like mvc decoding require an expensive license. Also the app needs to be approved if not side-loadable

                  Vudu does have sbs/tb 3D that doesn't require anything extra, except for your tv to recognize it.

                  Sony has opted not to include an mvc decoding library in my Bravia TV (also no Vudu app)
