Vudu is a US digital on-demand video service that lets you rent or purchase digital copies of different streaming content. It contains a massive library of movies, tv shows, and other streamable content to watch. The service is solely owned by Fandango Media which is a subsidiary of NBC Universal.

Vudu is different from the competition because you don’t have to pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee. Instead, you pay only for what you want to watch. This brings down the cost to a great extent as you don’t have to pay for programming that you don’t like.

How to Sign up for Vudu to use on FireStick and other Devices

To use Vudu, you have to sign up for its services and create and a Vudu account. However, as Vudu is a mere rental service, you don’t have to buy any subscription plan. Here’s how you can sign up.

Step 1: Go to the official website of Vudu.

Step 2: Go to the Sign up page

Step 3: Enter your information such as First name, Last name, Email, and a unique Password.

Step 4: Click Sign up to continue.

You can also signup with a Facebook or Walmart account if you have one.

Step 5:  In the next step, you have to enter the billing details.

You can skip it and do it later if you want because Vudu won’t charge you anything at this point. That’s why we suggest completing this information on the first go. Vudu will only charge you when you are purchasing any content.

The service accepts Paypal, a Credit card, or a Vudu Gift card.

Enter your billing details and hit Continue. If you want to enter billing details later, click on the “I’ll do it later” box.

How to Get Vudu on FireStick

To get Vudu on your streaming device, follow these steps:

Install the Downloader app

Unfortunately, Vudu isn’t available on the official Amazon app store, even though it’s a legal service.

Therefore, you have to sideload it on your Firestick.

You need a Downloader app for sideloading. It lets you download APK files from the internet. We use it because Firestick’s browser does not offer this functionality.

Below are the quick steps to start your installation process.

Step 1: On the home screen of Firestick, select the Find option. It will be in the middle of the menu bar. In case you are using an older version of the OS, then go for the Search option in the top left corner of the screen.

Step 2: By using the on-screen keypad, type in Downloader and look it up.

Step 3: Find the downloader in the search results and click on it.

Select Downloader from Apps & Games

Step 4: Follow the on-screen guide to install the Downloader application.

Allow Installation from Unknown Sources

Next, you have to allow APK installation from unknown sources. By default, Firestick comes with this feature disabled in order to protect your device from harmful third-party applications. In our case, Vudu is a totally safe application. Therefore, you can enable this feature without any worry. Here’s how you can do this:

Step 1: First of all, click the gear icon on your Firestick home page and open up the Settings menu.

Firestick Home Settings

Step 2: Next, go to the MY Fire TV option


Step 3: Now, select the Developer options


Step 4: Here, you can see the option that says “Install unknown apps.” (If you are using an older version of the Fire OS, then this option will be called “Apps from unknown sources.” Toggle it On)


Step 5: In the list of shown apps, select the Downloader app and turn it on. This will allow Downloader to get Vudu easily.

How to watch Vudu in a Web Browser on FireStick

There’s plenty of content to stream on the Vudu app. But, it’s surprising that the complete library of content isn’t available on the app. You have to use a web browser to access the entire library of content in Vudu.

Silk is Amazon’s official web browser. Therefore we are using it to browse Vudu.

Step 1: If you already have Silk on your device, you can skip this step. Go to Find and then the search option. Look up Silk and install it on your device.

Step 2: Open the Silk browser and click on the address bar on top of the screen.

That’s all.

You can now explore and stream your favorite content. There’s some free content in Vudu as well. Click on the menu button again and go to the Free category in the Popup menu.

Wrapping up

Installing Vudu on Firestick is fairly quick and easy. We hope now you can get it working on your device without any hassle. But remember that before you can use Vudu, you have to sign up for their service. While you can watch their free content right away, they require your billing information before unlocking the paid content.
