A great step in the right direction for B&N's content store
Working to build up its digital media presence, Barnes & Noble has released a Nook Video app to both Google Play and its own range of Nook tablets. The new app, which is available today, gives customers access to thousands of movies and TV shows for either purchase or rental, which can then be watched on a variety of devices.
B&N is quick to point out that unlike some other services (we all know they mean Amazon), there's no annual subscription required to have access to their entire content catalog. The content is also flexible and can be either downloaded or streamed, whichever is more convenient for you.
The app is available from Google Play for Android phones and tablets, and will show up automatically on your Nook tablet when connected to Wifi. Smartly, B&N is also making iOS and Roku apps available the same day — having content available across multiple devices is the best way to go.
