This should help Barnes & Noble a little as it tries to turn its NOOK Video into a viable alternative to iTunes and Amazon for those who want to buy movies and TV shows online. Lionsgate, MGM, Paramount Pictures, Relativity Media, National Geographic, Little Pim, and Film Buff have signed what the companies call “content licensing partnerships” that will “bring thousands of additional movies and TV shows for all ages and interests to the NOOK Video catalog.” Movie titles include The Hunger Games, the Twilight movies, Tyler Perry’s Madea Gets a Job, Skyfall, Rocky, Fargo, Flight, Paranormal Activity 4, Act of Valor, Safe Haven, and House at the End of the Street. TV series in the deal include Mad Men, Border Wars, Great Migrations, and Amazing Planet. “Combined with NOOK’s seamless UltraViolet integration, we are offering customers one of the most dynamic and accessible movie and TV show stores available,” says Jonathan Shar, NOOK’s General Manager, Emerging Digital Content.
