The retail behemoth on Tuesday began streaming many movies the same day they come out on DVD through its Vudu service. Wal-Mart purchased Vudu last year, and currently offers 20,000 titles on the site. Users can watch movies with Internet access and via devices like Sony's (SNE)PlayStation 3 and Blu-ray players.
Movies cost between $1 and $5.99 to rent and can be purchased for $4.99 and up.
Wal-Mart's Vudu does not offer a subscription option, making it a bit different than Netflix's service.
