Days after announcing the launch of high definition (HD) content on BT vision, the digital TV and video on demand (VoD) service from BT, BT has announced that an agreement has been signed with NBC Universal to include a broad selection of feature films in HD from the NBC Universal catalogue. This includes current blockbusters such as The Incredible Hulk, Wanted and Charlie Wilson's War alongside older classics.
Films will cost £4.95 for 'current' films and £2.95 for older 'library' titles. As material is not streamed to the V-Box but downloaded, customers are only charged once the download has completed and viewing started. NBC Universal titles need to be viewed within 48hours of the start of viewing.
The addition of more content is always welcome and helps to improve the value of money for consumers who subscribe to the service.
