Barnes and Noble has announced a video service for its Nook line of tablets today. The service, Nook Video, will feature content from many leading television and movie distributors when it is released later this fall.
Content on the service – including both movies and television shows – will come in both standard and high-definition and will be available for streaming and download. The new service will feature content from such partners as HBO, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, STARZ, Viacom, Warner Bros. Entertainment and Walt Disney Studios.
Some examples of titles coming to Nook Video include "Brave," "Toy Story 3," "The Avengers," "21 Jump Street," "The Artist," "Breaking Bad," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "The Walking Dead," "True Blood," "Game of Thrones," the Harry Potter movies, "The Dark Knight" and "The Hangover."
According to Barnes and Noble, the Nook Video service will store users" videos in the Nook Cloud, and Nook Video applications will be launched on additional platforms after release. Additionally, the service will also allow users to play their UltraViolet videos. Users will be able to link their Nook Video and UltraViolet accounts, which will then sync to the Nook Cloud.
UltraViolet videos that are purchased from other retail outlets, including physical Barnes and Noble Stores, will be compatible with the new service.
