Forget Blockbuster. Netflix needs to worry about Vudu.

Though 2010 is only 12 days old, it’s safe to say this is
going to be one hell of a year for Vudu.VUDU2  

The streaming media company was all over CES, outnumbered
(it seemed) only by the eReaders and netbooks. At the show, Vudu announced
several new partnerships which will put the service on HDTVs and Blu-ray players
from LG Electronics, Mitsubishi, Samsung, Sanyo, Sharp, Toshiba and Vizio.

Note that the only stragglers in that list are Sony and
Panasonic – and there was some grumbling from customers of both companies when
the names were left off of the new partner list.

The company also jumped on the app bandwagon, announcing a
program that allows customers to do more than just watch movies. Over 100 apps
were rolled out, providing access from everything from content from the
Associated Press and NBC Nightly News to the now standard Twitter and Facebook
interfaces.

No wonder the rumor mill is beginning to churn about a
possible buyout.
