The BlackBerry Video Store on the PlayBook launched in February of this year powered by Rovi Entertainment service but it was limited to the US. RIM later promised that the store would support more countries by the end of the year. Well it looks like we are now one step further towards that goal with the BlackBerry Video Store now being available to all BlackBerry PlayBook owners in Canada starting today.
Here is how RIM describes the store:
The BlackBerry Video Store offers a catalog of thousands of movies and TV shows with new releases available for purchase or rent. With the Video Store, customers have the option of streaming a trailer before making a purchase decision, and can also begin watching media as soon as they start to download a file. They won’t have to wait for the entire file to transfer before they can begin enjoying great entertainment on the tablet’s high resolution display or on an HDTV using the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet’s HDMI output.
PlayBook owners in Canada can now download the Video Store from App World and download their movies right away.
