Barnes & Nobile Releases New Nook Video App For iOS

Microsoft joins Barnes & Noble in Nook venture

If you can’t beat them, make an iOS app.

Barnes & Noble’s efforts to become America’s next great tablet maker haven’t really gone too well, so the company announced today that it’s ready to try something new: iOS apps.

This morning, Barnes & Noble announced it’s bringing the Nook Video service to iOS, Android and Roku devices, giving users access to a wide range of TV shows and movie just incase offerings from iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Prime Video, WatchABC, WatchESPN, MaxGO, Showtime Anytime, and Crackle just aren’t enough to get the fix for your media addiction. 

Nook Video allows you to rent or purchase movies to download similar to the way iTunes and Amazon sell content in their store. Everything is synced up in the cloud so you can pick up watching where you left off from any iOS device, or download it over WiFi for offline viewing.

They’ve also included UltraViolet integration so you can log in to your UV account to access all your old content as well. The free app is available for download now in the App Store and Google Play.

    Gonna go out on a limb here and assume this won’t work outside the US. Just like everything else.
