FOX, NBCUniversal to Provide Movies, TV Shows For NOOK Tablets

Deadline reports that NBCUniversal and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will provide standard definition, HD movies and TV shows to the NOOK Video download and rental service. The news comes at the same time that Barnes & Noble prepares to ship its NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ tablets to its stores.

Among the titles that will be offered are Snow White And The Huntsman, Battleship, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. The retailer revealed that along with content from HBO, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, STARZ, Viacom, Warner Bros, and Disney,it will offer “thousands of movies and TV shows for all ages and interests.” The agreement will now make it easier for owners of the NOOK to stream videos from their UltraViolet accounts.

The NOOK HD has a 7-inch screen and weighs 11.1 oz, and is 20% lighter than Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD, its main competitor in the market. A model with 8 GB of memory costs $199 while one with 16 GB goes for $229. The new NOOK HD+ has a 9-inch display and weighs 18.2 oz, making it “the lightest full HD Tablet ever invented.” It costs $269 with 16GB of memory and $299 with 32GB.
