If you own a smartphone, tablet device, e-reader or anything else with Android technology then you might be interested to know that it won’t be long until you can watch your Blu-ray titles on it.
20th Century Fox’s upcoming Blu-ray Disc release of blockbuster Unstoppable is the first to come with functionality that will let consumers watch the movie on the go using their Android device. The studio plans to include the technology in all its major releases this year.
Simon Swart of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment said, “For the first time ever, our customers can now access their Blu-ray titles on their Android devices with the Blu-ray Digital Copy at no additional charge, anytime, anywhere!”
Users can copy the movie to their Android devices using BD Live and the PocketBlu Android application, which is available as a free download from the Android Market app store. To enjoy the benefits they will need their Blu-ray Disc, a wi-fi connected Blu-ray player and an Android device running version 1.6 or higher. They will also be able to copy extras like interviews and the Director’s commentary along with the full movie.
