Barnes & Noble today has revealed plans to launch their own streaming video service for their NOOK line of tablet computers. Dubbed NOOK Video, the service will feature content licensed from HBO, Sony Pictures, STARZ, Walkt Disney Studios, Viacom, and Warner Bros. in an effort to compete directly with similar offerings from the likes of Amazon, Netflix, and even Google Play. As a bonus, NOOK Video will feature Ultraviolet integration to sync users’ existing Blu-Ray and DVD libraries with their digital media library.

NOOK Video will launch this fall in the US and over holiday season in the UK.
