VinFast to include RIDEVU in VF 8 electric car model

Developed by Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE), RIDEVU provides customers access to over 2,000 movies.

VinFast Auto launched Sony’s new online entertainment service, RIDEVU, on its VF 8 electric car model in the U.S. RIDEVU will be included as a complimentary service in the VF Connect Prime package, VinFast said. U.S. owners of the VF 8 who register for the service will receive access to RIDEVU with the over-the-air (OTA) software update version 9.6.1.11.

Developed by Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE), RIDEVU provides customers access to over 2,000 movies. For 12 months, users can watch a library of regularly updated titles, with unlimited replays of up to 100 movies. Customers can also access titles by redeeming credits, purchasing or renting directly through the app.

With RIDEVU, customers can view content on multiple screens, including in-car displays and brought-in devices. The central screen, with its screen manager feature, gives users control over playback on all connected displays, providing parental controls directly from the vehicle’s dashboard.

Drivers can only watch movies via the RIDEVU app on the central screen while parked (charging, camping, etc.). Passengers can watch movies on their mobile devices (smartphones, tablets) using the Screen Manager feature in the RIDEVU Companion app while the vehicle is in motion. RIDEVU is compatible with Android, iOS, Android TV, Apple TV and Linux.

RIDEVU is anticipated to also be available on the VF 9 upon its delivery to the U.S. market, with Canada to follow later this year.
