Blockbuster OnDemand service on future Motorola phones
Want to watch a classic old film or a recent mega-hit? Soon you will be able to turn on your new Motorola handset to catch a movie. Blockbuster has announced that certain Motorola devices will come equipped with the Blockbuster OnDemand download service which will allow you to choose from thousands of motion pictures in the OnDemand service to watch on your phone.

Kevin Lewis, the film rental company's Sr. VP of Digital Entertainment, said, "People are increasingly relying on their mobile phones to stay connected to the things they love the most -- including their favorite movies and TV shows. The integration of our BLOCKBUSTER OnDemand service into Motorola's mobile phones will provide access to thousands of movies from the moment someone initiates their service." There are no details on which of the Schaumburg, Illinois based company's devices will support the service, or when it will be available. All that will missing from the total movie experience will be kids crying, overpriced food and drinks, and burnt popcorn.

I don't get it either. Why not offer the option to any phone company or maybe make it exclusive to AT&T or Verizon or something.

The only thing I can think of, is that since Motorola is sucking hard right now, Blockbuster got a pretty good deal with them.
