BLOCKBUSTER On Demand Coming To HTC HD2
This offering will be the first download and multi-screen mobile movie application for Blockbuster. It is part of Blockbuster's multichannel offering that offers customers more than 100,000 movies, television shows, and games. The application will also support true multi-screen capabilities, allowing users to buy a title on their HTC HD2 phone and watch it on a BLOCKBUSTER On Demand enabled TV set or Blu-ray disc player. You'll also be able to go between devices, starting a movie on a TV and finishing it on the HD2, for instance. There are no monthly fees for the service and customers will be able to buy or rent as they go. Following launch, the application will let customers access actual store inventory and update their mail queues.
"Available exclusively from T-Mobile, the HTC HD2 is like putting Blockbuster in your pocket," said Kevin Lewis, senior vice president of digital entertainment at Blockbuster. "T-Mobile and HTC have a long history of partnering to deliver innovative, cutting-edge products - and we're glad to provide customers the latest way to enjoy entertainment from Blockbuster."
The HTC HD2 is expected to be available from T-Mobile this spring.
