Walmart-owned streaming service Vudu has added all four seasons of Mad Men. Vudu continues to stock TV shows as well as a film catalog; it now includes all seasons of CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, and “next-day” episodes from CW’s Gossip Girl and TNT’s Hawthorne and Franklin & Bash.

Warner Bros. Entertainment will offer China’s first ever on-demand movie service. The program, YOU On Demand, is estimated to appear in three million homes by the end of August. So far, Warner Bros. reports that its library has over 600 available films already approved by the Chinese government’s censorship process.
