Get Sherlock Holmes (2009) On Your PlayBook Compliments of BlackBerry!

IMG_00000027

Gokulesh let us know that Sherlock Holmes is available to download for free from the Video Store! I was lucky enough to have it come up in the Featured area of App World but others have not been so lucky. All you have to do is login to your Video Store account or register if you’re not signed up yet. It does require you to enter credit card information but I can verify that the movie is completely free to download.

For those that can’t seem to find it, I am sorry to say it is only available in Canada and the US because it is downloaded via the Video Store. Its really too bad that RIM’s most successful markets don’t have access to all they have to offer. Some have speculated that in this case, it could be due to licensing rights.

If you are in Canada or the US and still can’t find it, Michelle over at CrackBerry put together a nice tutorial to snag Sherlock Holmes anyway. Thanks Michelle!

Canada:
1. Go to blackberrycanada.roxionow.com/redeem
2. Enter the code SHERLOCK
3. If you already have a BlackBerry Video Store account, log in. If not, create one.
4. Download the free BlackBerry Video Store app on your PlayBook, if you don’t have it already.
5. Log in to the app and go to My Library. You should see Sherlock Holmes under Movies.
6. Click to download.

United States:
1. Go to BlackBerry.roxionow.com/redeem
2. Enter the code WATSON
3. If you already have a BlackBerry Video Store account, log in. If not, create one.
4. Download the free BlackBerry Video Store app on your PlayBook, if you don’t have it already.
5. Log in to the app and go to My Library. You should see Sherlock Holmes under Movies.
6. Click to download.

I think this is a great move for RIM to offer this free movie as it baits the hook for people to rent and buy more movies and TV shows. I think the pricing is a bit high, but it is extremely convenient especially with the HDMI connectivity.

Go get it! I’ve been watching the epic fight scene at around the 17 minute mark repeatedly. Open-mouthed smile

  1. I have a new headline for you:

    Get Sherlock Holmes (2009) On Your PlayBook Compliments of BlackBerry… only if you are in the US or Canada!

  2. Thanks RIM, love the freebees.

    Will download tonite.

  3. it has expired in canada and not available in us

  4. What about the rest of the world, or is this only a local party?

  5. It keeps saying Could not connect to the Video Store Service, Please try again later.. It’s been like that since it was announced, could it be that servers are too busy with all the requests? I don’t understand, I cannot even see Featured or TV shows section..

  6. Downloading it as we speak now, so far so good…
    Thanks for the freebie RIM
