Vdio launches in Canada with a smaller catalog


Canadians who love movies (but hate vowels) just received some good news: Rdio has launched Vdio in their homeland. The content and pricing is largely similar to what we've seen in the US, including major movies that cost $5.99 to rent and $19.99 to buy. There are a few glaring omissions, though -- some bigger titles, such as Django Unchained and Silver Linings Playbook, are listed as "unavailable." Vdio isn't launching all that smoothly in the Great White North, then. Even so, its arrival is noteworthy when many online media services tend to skip Canada altogether.
