    Barnes & Noble has released a new Nook Video app for iOS, allowing customers to watch movies and TV shows from Nook Video on their iPhones and iPads.

    First launched late last year, Nook Video is designed to compete with services like iTunes and Amazon Instant Video, giving Nook users the option to purchase content like movies and TV shows through Barnes & Noble.

    Like Amazon, Barnes & Noble's video service includes support for UltraViolet, which is the film industry's cloud-based content licensing system designed to work across a number of platforms. Users can sync their UltraViolet accounts to their Barnes & Noble accounts to access that content as well.

    While the Nook Video app can be used to view previously purchased content, iOS users are not able to make rentals and purchases from within the app.

    Nook Video is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    Would be awesome if this were released to the Apple TV ( a la HBOGo).

    I'll wait on this content to come to Netflix.

    And Ultraviolet? I have to actually buy a disc to get access to that. I'd prefer it work on the iTunes Store than need some third party system.

    Getting a Nook video app on the AppleTV, while an Amazon Prime app continues to look completely hopeless, would just be the cruelest joke ever.

    lol is this a joke?

    why do companies insist on making branded apps that we have no need for?

    so out of touch it's laughable

    Just get a Roku if you want an Amazon video app on. I only use my Apple tv to stream my own content. Everything else, I just use the Roku. Plus it works with older non HD tv's as well HD tv's.
