Vudu users with Sony 4K TVs can now watch hundreds of movies in ultra HD, thanks to an update to its Android TV app. If you've got auto-updates enabled, you don't need to do anything to enjoy a clearer, crisper picture -- it's ready to go. If you don't, just update to the new app from the Google Play Store.

Walmart-owned Vudu -- which is basically the iTunes of movies -- already supports 4K ultra HD on a range of TV brands and streaming devices, such as Apple TV and Chromecast, so its move into Sony's arena isn't a huge surprise. It also further indicates its ambitions to conquer the film-on-demand ecosystem, having also added Disney titles and offline rental viewing options to the fold in recent times.
