The world’s largest retailer on Tuesday started streaming many movies the same day they come out on DVD, in a second bid for a share of popular movie rental and streaming website Netflix Inc.‘s business and just two weeks after Netflix announced new price increases.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. bought video-streaming service 18 months ago and now offers 20,000 titles that can be viewed on almost any device with Internet access, from computers to televisions to Sony’s PlayStation3 and other Blu-Ray disc players.

Movies are available at to rent for $1 to $5.99 or to purchase for $4.99 and up. Wal-Mart is not offering subscriptions, making its service more similar to Apple Inc.‘s iTunes, which charges $3.99 to rent newly released movies and $14.99 to buy a movie.
