Following in the trails of companies like CinemaNow, Movielinnk and Vongo, Santa Clara based Vudu began selling the movies-on-demand Vudu box this week. The key difference between the Vudu box and its predecessors is that the box allows users to watch movies on their TV rather than their computer. Users will be able to select from 5,000 movies with rental prices ranging from $0.99 to $3.99 and purchase prices from $4.99 to $19.99. The two-year old company hopes to tap into the movies-on-demand market that is estimated to hit $3 billion by 2010. The Vudu box starts shipping to stores next month at a cost of $399 but is also available for pre-order on their site.
