    It is compatible if you use Roku or one of those platforms, but they said long ago in this post that they would not be going any further back than 2016 (and only some of those). I have a 2016 Sony 4K that was left out, but I have a Roku 4K player that does the HDR and such, so it pretty much doesn't matter. The point is, they aren't going to make Vudo 4K compatible from within your Sony TV. You'll need to get a 3rd party player (i.e. Roku) like the rest of us. And SolidState, I don't understand why you're "boycoting" Vudu. All of the current TVs (2018 and on) are completely compatible with Vudu. And I understand that doesn't help those of us with older Sony TVs, but it takes a lot of time/money to make code backwards compatible for older models of TV. And since Vudu is on Amazon Fire Stick, Google Chromcast, Roku a d other palyers, why not just get one of those (if you haven't already) and then you can enjoy it all on your current TV.
    Your suggestion is not a practical solution, but thanks. Why should I need buy device to hang on my TV to just to get VUDU 4K. Like I said, I can get 4K HDR for netflix, Google, and Amazon, but not VUDU. Why? Don't give me excuses. The easiest solution is to switch service which is NOT a boycott, it's switching to a service that better support my TV as it is. I switched from Sony PlayStation video service to VUDU in 2010 because sony did not support sub titles, my first VUDU movie was Surrogates. Now it seems anything from sony even my newer devices (Playstation or Sony BluRay UBP-X800) may or may not get support. I should not have to buy Roku just to get VUDU 4K when I have enough devices that you would think is supported.

      It's the definition of a practical solution. It's unfortunate that your current set of devices don't support Vudu 4K. I find it easier to hang a cheap box or stick on my TVs than agitate about things not within my control. Peace.

        It would also be nice to see a list of the devices which support DOLBY VISION !

          I was trying to play 'Shazam' on my Chromecast Ultra via the Vudu app in UHD and while it passed along 4k resolution and Atmos sound, it didn't pass along HDR to my Benq 4k projector. It is plugged into an Onkyo TX-NR676 . To fix, I swapped over to my Samsung 4k disc player and used the Vudu app on it and voila, all passed along properly including HDR. Same receiver, same projector, etc.

          Is this a current known issue (Chromecast Ultra not passing HDR)? I tried a few movies and none of the passed HDR via the Vudu app. Also switched to the Movies Anywhere app and Google Play Movies and the HDR flag was not passed there either. Thanks for any info.

            My issue with the CCU is a little different but I'd say yes, Google manage to break the CCU recently. My issue is that it sends Dolby Vision but only in 1080p! ( Vudu and Netflix app ) and then Movies anywhere sends 4k but only HDR10 instead of Dolby Vision.

            What a farkin mess !

              I did more testing, and found a fix for my issue. It may fix your issue if you are attaching your Chromecast to a receiver as opposed to direct to a TV, etc.

              I had factory reset my Onkyo receiver a few weeks ago, and I had remembered reading that there are two semi-hidden settings in recent Onkyo receivers. One is a deep color setting - in many components this is usually best to turn off, but you want to turn it on in Onkyo receivers ( and perhaps other receivers) . You can google the key combo you need to press for your particular receiver. Mine was already set to on so that was not the issue in this case.

              The other setting is in more recent Onkyo receivers - it is a '4k enhanced' setting and by default the receivers are set to '4k standard' as they are assuming that many consumers do not have cables with the muscle to handle 4:4:4 or 10 bit video signals. In my case, I needed to change this to Enhanced by pressing the BLURAY button, plus ON/STANDBY until the setting was updated.

              HDR now works fully via the Chromecast Ultra!

              Hope this helps.

                Any chance Vudu will support DV playback on the new FireTV Cube?

                  That's probably more up to Amazon than it is Vudu I would guess?

                      Yeah Vudu's 4K compatibility list is the stupidest compatibility list I have ever seen since there ever was a concept of compatibility list. Running 4K gaming and everything else in 4K Except Vudu!

                          Amazon and Walmart are huge competitors - so sadly due to politics it doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. Yo can side load the app, which I have done, but it is very glitchy and the search doesn't work.

                            Also, 4k and HDR content will not work with the side load Vudu app on the Fire TV.

                            392 UHD
                            766 HDX

                              So I can't watch nor download UHD movies on my computer? A computer that has the Spec's - I7-8700K CPU / GeForce GTX 1080 Ti W/11GB mem / 250mb download with a UHD TV.

                              But... I can watch my UHD movies on my Xbox - Seriously?

                              Why in the world can't I download my movies in UHD? Your basically turning me off from making any purchase on your website. I have players that are able to play 4K movies but you won't allow me access to the UHD movies that I have paid for??

                              I hope someone can explain this to me because I'm totally confused by this because I know I was able to watch UHD movies before in the VUDU app.

                              Thanks in Advance

                                Why can't I play my UHD movies through your app on the PS4 Pro? I'd understand if it was the regular PS4 or if I had it hooked up to a plain HDTV, but I have it connected to my grandmother's 4K TV with the best cables available so that's no excuse. It should only take a simple patch to allow UHD support on compatible systems (since it's all software) so I would appreciate it if you could get on that.

                                P.S. You guys are missing out on some serious revenue from your 3D movies by not supporting the PlayStation VR for the playback of them.
