Vudu uses the press coverage of CES to announce the Vudu XL, a $1,000 set-top-box that provides instant access to movies. Specifically, the enhanced XL model adds one terabyte of storage to the already attractive package. The added storage is supposed to entice consumers to use Vudu not just as a movie rental box, but as a box used to begin and maintain a movie library. In my day, we called that a PC with a big hard drive, but I realize that most people aren’t interested in figuring out how to set up a home theater PC.
She comes out in February, available at high-end AV retailers.
