Barnes & Noble to introduce Nook video
NEW YORK, USA — US bookseller Barnes & Noble says it will launch a video service this fall that lets users buy and watch movies and TV shows on their mobile devices and televisions.
The New York-based company says users of Nook Video will be able to shop an extensive collection of movies and shows from major studios including HBO, Sony Pictures, Viacom , and Warner Brothers. The move into video puts Barnes & Noble more directly into competition with other online video providers, including Amazon.com and Apple.
Users will be able to download videos and view them on Barnes & Noble’s Nook tablets and other devices with the Nook Video app, which the company plans to launch soon.
