Blockbuster movies headed to Motorola phones Blockbuster has announced that they will begin offering a service that allows users to watch movies via their Motorola handsets.
The rental company is stepping into mobile video for the first time, and has been struggling for years now, losing market share and customers to rivals such as Netflix and RedBox.

There was not too much details available on the plan however the company said it would be an expansion of the OnDemand movie download service that is currently available through set-top boxes.

There was no word on release date, file format, or price.

Kevin Lewis, Blockbuster's vice president for digital entertainment, did add however that the service would debut with "thousands of films" available.

Blockbuster must be having a difficult time grabbing some of that streaming video market share from Netflix.
