News brief: Skype founder’s video service rolls out

Vdio, the video rental service for movies and TV shows from Skype co-founder Janus Friis, has launched out of beta mode.

The store, which was developed by the same team behind the 2010-launched music subscription service Rdio, originally went live for Rdio Unlimited customers in April, but is now available to anyone, the firm said.

Vdio is currently available in the US and UK and can be accessed online and as an app for the iPad. The store currently let users buy, rent and share content with friends on a pay-per view basis.
