In a surprising move, 20th Century Fox announces that it will allow digital downloads of its  movies to Android devices.

Starting in October, customers who purchase a Blu-ray disc of a movie by 20th Century Fox will be able to download the content to their computer, which can then be loaded onto the device. The first film that will offer this option is going to be "X-Men: First Class" (which can already be pre-ordered).

Amazing Cyber Monday deals from Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon & more are already here

Here is a quote from Vincent Marcais, who is Senior Vice President of Marketing for the film studio:

“Given its strong growth as a mobile operating system, the support for Android is an important move for us because it further enhances Blu-ray discs as the best way to get your movies to all your screens.”

This is great news for Android users as it offers just one more way to get high quality content on the phone or tablet. With Netflix expanding, Google Video rentals soon to debut and movie studios such as 20th Century Fox allowing digital downloads, the content catelog continues to improve.
