NEWS: Motorola's turn for movie downloads

Following last week’s news that Apple was launching its movie download service in the UK, Motorola has followed suit by announcing a similar service for mobile phones.

The mobile phone manufacturer has announced a deal with Paramount Digital Entertainment to offer movie downloads. Pricing for films ranges from £5.99 to £8.99 and include titles such as Mission Impossible 3, School of Rock and The Italian Job.

The movies will work on handsets that support OMA 2.0 and H.264 video codecs, including the company’s new MOTO Z10 (opens in new tab) handset.

The service will initially be launching in the UK, with Germany, Italy, Spain and France following soon. Hop over to and see what’s on offer.
