Welcome to Walmart TV.

The world’s biggest retailer has partnered with MGM to create original programs that will air exclusively on Walmart Inc.’s Vudu video-streaming service. The shows, based on franchises from MGM’s film and TV catalog, will be free to watch and financed with advertising. An ad-free version will be available for paying viewers. The first show will debut in the first quarter of next year, company spokesman Justin Rushing confirmed on Monday.
