Twentieth Century Fox, the famous Hollywood production house, is set to allow Android smartphone and tablet owners to view the studio’s Blu-ray movies on their mobile devices. The first Blu-ray movie to be made available on Android devices will be the “X-Men: First Class”.
The application which will allow users to load the movies on the phones will be available from October starting with US, UK, Germany and France, followed by other parts of the world.
“Given its strong growth as a mobile operating system, the support for Android is an important move for us because it further enhances Blu-ray discs as the best way to get your movies to all your screens,” Fox marketing vice president Vincent Marcais told the Financial Times.
It’s not known if Fox will make digital copies of movies for sale separately from Blu-ray discs.
